In news I never thought would happen, we have just learned that Cabin in the Woods could potentially see a sequel someday. Given that it only took in about $42 million at the domestic box office against an estimated budget of $30 Million, I assumed that a follow up was a definite no go. But in an interesting turn of events, Drew Goddard revealed, while doing press for The Martian, that the studio has actually approached him about the possibility of a sequel.
Goddard explained that LionsGate is actually interested in seeing a second installment put into production, “the studio wants to do it. They’ve come to us,” the director told Den of Geek. “The funny part is, I don’t think we planned that movie to do a sequel, you know?”
When the outlet pointed out that the ending didn’t really leave room for a sequel Goddard remarked, “It doesn’t. 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.”
As for whether or not they have any solid ideas, Goddard 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.”
In Cabin in the Woods, a group of college friends take to a cabin in the woods for a weekend getaway. In true horror film fashion, the students do some screwing, things go awry, evil rears its ugly head, and people die.
