Which is actually not a bad idea at all. MGM is looking at getting a sequel of CABIN IN THE WOODS into development. Writer and director Drew Goddard is making the press rounds for The Martian, which he wrote the script for, and while talking to Den of Geek he revealed that he’s been approached by the studio regarding The Cabin in the Woods 2.
When they asked him about the sequel he said that “the studio wants to do it. There is no loose ends in the first part it will be interesting to see how and from where they are going to pick up the story or maybe do a prequel of the story which makes more sense.
“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[Whedon] 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.”
Goddard dismissed the idea of a sequel before, but now it seems like he’d actually entertain the idea. Asked if there are any ideas yet, he said:
“Yeah, we don’t know. There’s nothing in the hopper right now, but who knows? The way Joss and I work, we might wake up tomorrow and go, ‘let’s go do that,’ or whatever.”
