I can't deny it: I get giddy thinking about the sequel to TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL. The 2010 cult hit has definitely become one of my 'go-to' flicks when I'm in the mood for a hilariously bloody good time. When we learned that talks of a sequel had begun back in March I was ecstatic! I've been begging for another go-around with Tucker and Dale ever since peeping the first film. But, like many fans, I only want a sequel if it's done right. That sentiment is shared by Dale himself, Tyler Labine, who recently shared a little bit about the status of the flick with Daily Dead.

Labine is excited about returning to the character of Dale for the sequel, but only if the script is up to snuff. Says Labine:

I can tell you that it’s more than just in the works. It’s being written. Alan and I, and Eli and Morgan (director Eli Craig and writer Morgan Jurgenson), we’re collaborating very closely. The main thing to put out there is that we’ve all very adamantly vocalized the fact that if it’s not up to snuff, we’re not doing it. This is not a money grab. Nobody wants to make a shitty sequel to a movie that was such a surprise hit. We’re not trying to capitalize on it. We want to make sure that whatever script we do end up with is really, really great, but if it’s not, it’s not going to get made. We don’t want to ruin any integrity that the original film has.

That's refreshing to hear. Get it right, fellas! We wanna see more of Tucker & Dale!

Labine goes on to share that if the script is good the film is definitely going to happen, stating...

If it is good, it’s happening. It’s not even an issue anymore of, ‘Oh, it might happen.’ It’s the first thing on our producers’ slate for 2015. We have some outside dates set for shooting, so it’s coming along. We just don’t have a script yet. [Laughs.] So that will happen soon.

Yes! This makes me so damn happy. Hopefully they can take everything that made the original film so much fun and amp it up! I'll be the first in line for the return of the lovable but unlucky hicks Tucker and Dale. Bring it on!

Beyond stoked for more of these fellers.

"Tucker and Dale vs... Good?"

Tucker and Dale get mixed up in a really friendly religious cult where the cult members 'actually' start committing suicide all around them. These cult members believe that the more brutal their suicide is, the more rewarded they are in heaven. =D

And then Tucker and Dale fight the evil cult leader.

Tucker and Dale Go to Yale

I love the idea of anything to do with these characters. It was such a spin on the genre to see and root for outdoorsy folks.

Tucker and Dale Go to Yale sounds like a great title to bring the dynamic duo out of the woods and into fresh territory so we don't get a stale rehashed sequel.
