Genre filmmakers Michael and Peter Spierig (Lionsgate’s “Jigsaw”) are set to direct “Fall 2,” the second installment in the “Fall” franchise. Scott Mann, who directed and co-wrote the first film, is returning to co-write with Jonathan Frank. 

Following the hugely successful survival thriller “Fall,” released in 2022 by Lionsgate, “Fall 2” — set to start production in June — will reunite producers Mark Lane and James Harris of Tea Shop Prods. (“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. Capstone will finance the sequel, with Capstone Global handling worldwide rights.

In late 2023, Capstone Studios greenlit both “Fall 2” and “Fall 3,” which will bring back original characters from the first film while also leaving room for new ones to be introduced. The first “Fall” followed two best friends who climb 2,000 feet to the top of an abandoned radio tower and find themselves stranded with no way down. Their expert climbing skills are put to the test as they desperately fight to survive the elements, a lack of supplies and vertigo-inducing heights. 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.

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.”

The Spierig brothers are best known for Lionsgate’s “Winchester,” starring Helen Mirren and Sarah Snook, and “Jigsaw,” the eighth film in the “Saw” series. Additional credits include “Daybreakers,” starring Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe, “Predestination” starring Hawke and Snook, and zombie film “Undead.”

The original “Fall” was a surprise runaway critical and commercial success. Hitting No. 1 in several countries around the world, the movie drew over $20 million in box office from its original $3 million budget and was a major hit overseas, including in China, where it was nominated as best foreign film for a Golden Rooster, the country’s equivalent of the Academy Awards.
