‘She Never Died’: First Look at Olunike Adeliyi in Female-led ‘He Never Died’ Sequel

Indie filmmaker Jason Krawczyk made a name for himself with his 2014-15 festival hit He Never Died, which starred Henry Rollins as Jack, a social outcast who embarks on a bloody quest to save his long-lost daughter from a crime syndicate.
Several months ago Bloody Disgusting broke the news that Krawczyk has stepped away from directing the sequel in order to focus on getting his long-planned television adaptation off the ground. Instead, Audrey Cummings would be getting behind the camera for the newly titled She Never Died.
We also reported that Rollins will not be returning in the film’s sequel, although we didn’t know the replacement at the time. Now, after completing filming, ScreenDaily breaks the story that Olunike Adeliyi (Doug Liman’s upcoming Chaos Walking) stars in She Never Died as Lacey, an immortal cannibal who saves a woman from dying a grisly death on a dark web channel and hunts down down the culprits. The new film is being pegged as a “companion” to He Never Died.
The full cast includes Michelle Nolden, Peter MacNeil, Noah Danby, Kiana Madeira, and special cameo by rock star Lawrence Gowan.
Cummings directed the feature and series Darken, as well as the indie Tormented (Berkshire County).
A71 Entertainment will distribute She Never Died in Canada.
Krawczyk wrote the screenplay. David Miller of A71 Productions serves as producer alongside Jennifer Mesich of White Eagle Entertainment, and executive producers Zach Hagen, Krawczyk of AES Productions, Dan Peel, and Bill Marks of Vortex Pictures and Words.
