Drew Goddard’s “The Cabin in the Woods” opened in 2012 to much acclaim. Goddard helmed from a script he co-wrote with Joss Whedon, and this week he showed up at the Toronto International Film Festival where he spoke about several other projects.
First up, Cinema Blend asked if he and Whedon had ideas for a ‘Cabin’ sequel. According to Goddard, his opinion about whether to go forward or not changes day-to-day:
“They want to make one. I think Joss… we talked about it. I think we just don’t want to, we don’t want to f–k it up.
I mean, I think, I’ve always felt this way. Not everything needs to be a franchise. You know, like we only want to make it if we’re excited about it. I don’t care, I don’t think we need to do it. It’s more about, is there something that excites us? You know, that universe is pretty exciting, so we talk about it from time to time. I don’t know.
If I had to put odds, the tricky part with Joss and I, especially, is it all depends on how we wake up in the morning. If we wake up… I can easily see us over drinks tomorrow going like, ‘Hey, what if we did this?’ But I can also see us being like, ‘The movie is pretty good. We don’t need to revisit it.'”
Goddard also spoke with Crave Online about the abandoned “The Amazing Spider-Man” spin-off film “Sinister Six” which he was attached to direct:
“It’s not happening right now, but Hollywood is very volatile so you never know… On the off-chance we actually get to make it one day I want to keep it sort of quiet, but it was the epic Spider-Man movie of my dreams. Yeah, no, look, I loved it. We were deep in pre-production when the Sony hack happened and it was sad to see everything go down. But welcome to Hollywood.”
