It broke the mold of horror films and scored strong acclaim in the process, but 2012’s “Cabin in the Woods” was only a modestly successful box-office performer.
Now writer/director Drew Goddard says that Lionsgate is reportedly interested in pursuing a sequel. Speaking with Den of Geek this week about his script work for “The Martian,” Goddard reveals he was approached to do a ‘Cabin’ follow-up:
“The funny part is, I don’t think we planned that movie to do a sequel, you know? But that being said, the fun thing about Cabin is, the rules are pretty crazy. We get away with a lot of crazy stuff.
So, I’m sure we could figure it out if we got inspired to. I know Joss and I both feel like we don’t want to tarnish what we did with the first one. With a sequel, we’d only do it if it made us laugh hard enough, I suppose.”
Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford starred in the original which Goddard and Joss Whedon co-wrote and Whedon directed.
