Poster for Throwback Movie ‘Brute 1976’ Channels the Spirit of ‘Chain Saw Massacre’ [Exclusive]

Fear reached dizzying new heights in Lionsgate’s Fall, a survival thriller from the producers of 47 Meters Down that was released in August 2022. Its surprise success means there are not one but two sequels on the way, and today, the Spierig Brothers have been announced to direct Fall 2.

Michael and Peter Spierig (Lionsgate’s Jigsaw, Winchester, Daybreakers) are set to direct the sequel. Scott Mann, who directed and co-wrote the first film, is returning to co-write Fall 2 with Jonathan Frank.

In Fall, “For best friends Becky (Grace Caroline Currey) and Hunter (Virginia Gardner), life is all about conquering fears and pushing limits. But after they climb 2,000 feet to the top of a remote, abandoned radio tower, they find themselves stranded with no way down. Now, Becky and Hunter’s expert climbing skills will be put to the ultimate test as they desperately fight to survive the elements, a lack of supplies, and vertigo-inducing heights in this adrenaline-fueled thriller.”

It also starred Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, “The Walking Dead”); Fall was produced & directed by Scott Mann (Final Score) and written by Mann and Jonathan Frank (Final Score).

Fall 2 and Fall 3 will bring back original characters from the first film, while also leaving room for new ones to be introduced. Mann will return to write and direct the third installment.

“We’re extremely excited to helm the second installment of this franchise and bring to life another nail-biting, vertigo-inducing thrill ride,” the Spierig Brothers said in a statement.

Mann added, “I am so proud to hand over the reins to the Spierigs, two highly respected genre directors whose addition will undoubtedly make this follow-up even more of a must-see experience than we already knew it would be. I can’t wait for Flawless to work alongside them and the rest of our fantastic filmmaking team to take the Fall franchise to epic new heights.”

Fall 2 will reunite producers Mark Lane and James Harris of Tea Shop Productions (47 Meters Down), Capstone’s Christian Mercuri, David Haring, and Scott Mann via the Flawless banner. Dan Asma, John Long, and Roman Viaris will also reunite as Executive Producers alongside Capstone’s Ruzanna Kegeyan.

Fall 2 is set to begin shooting in June 2024, so stay tuned.
