Will The Cabin in the Woods 2 Ever Happen?

Director Drew Goddard's new crime-action thriller BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE Officially hits theaters next week. This means that Goddard is out and about promoting the hell out of the movie and I guess it was only a matter of time before someone out there asked him about a possible sequel to CABIN IN THE WOODS. That person (or, whatever) was Fandango who sat down with Goddard and asked him if there was any chance in hell that we would ever see CABIN IN THE WOODS 2.

Drew Goddard:

Well, you know, we sort of painted ourselves into a corner with the ending of Cabin in the Woods. It's not a thing that calls for an easy sequel, I'll tell you that much.

We had some crazy ideas but Joss [Whedon] and I both felt strongly that we didn't want to do it just to do it. Right? I'm very lucky that I get to keep making movies, I don't need to just go make a sequel for the sake of making a sequel. The only way we could do it is if we could do it justice, and the truth is, it's a hard one to do justice to. Every version of continuing the story undercuts the ending that we had in Cabin, and I just feel like that continues to be the perfect ending for that movie and I never want to undercut it.

But never say never, right?

I mean, look, I never say never, either. I've learned, tomorrow, that a bolt of lightning could strike and you could think of an idea that does the first one justice, but I haven't quite had that idea yet, I haven't had the idea yet that makes me go, “Oh, we have to drop everything and do that now."

Personally, I think there could be a CABIN IN THE WOODS 2. After all, [SPOILER ALERT] We only saw that ONE giant hand crush JUST the cabin in the woods. It's conceivable that it stopped there, right? Meh, maybe not. But if this idea gets us a worthy sequel then it'll do. What do you think of a sequel to THE CABIN IN THE WOODS? Let us know below! After that, snag a copy of the original flick on Blu-ray via Amazon RIGHT HERE.
