After several years, the pleas of He Never Died fans have finally been answered. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Jason Krawczyk’s 2015 horror-comedy starring Henry Rollins as an immortal cannibal is finally getting a sequel, with Krawczyk and Rollins both back on board. He Never Died 2 will begin filming in May, but no other casting information has been announced.
The THR story says the movie will pick up following the events of the original, when Rollins’ Jack rescued his estranged daughter from a crime boss (played by lovable Grand Theft Auto V maniac Steven Ogg). Now, Jack is “a vagabond attempting to keep his supernatural compulsion in check” while facing off against other “depraved sadists” and finding a way to “defy his inner demons.”
A miniseries adaptation/sequel of He Never Died was in the works a few years ago, but that project has presumably been replaced by this one.
