Goddard On "Cabin in the Woods 2" Potential

3 October 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It broke the mold of horror films and scored strong acclaim in the process, but 2012's "Cabin in the Woods" was only a modestly successful box-office performer.

Now writer/director Drew Goddard says that Lionsgate is reportedly interested in pursuing a sequel. Speaking with Den of Geek this week about his script work for "The Martian," Goddard reveals he was approached to do a 'Cabin' follow-up:

"The funny part is, I don't think we planned that movie to do a sequel, you know? 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, »

14 September 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2012's The Cabin in the Woods marked the directorial debut for Drew Goddard, after writing the screenplay for Cloverfield and working on hit shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Alias and Lost. The film, which the director co-wrote with Joss Whedon, wasn't a monstrous success at the box office, taking in $66.4 million worldwide, but it was beloved by genre fans around the world. While doing press for The Martian, which Drew Goddard adapted from Andy Weir, the filmmaker was asked if there was any possibility of a sequel to The Cabin in the Woods happening. As it turns out, Lionsgate does want a sequel, although Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon aren't sure they want to make it.

"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. »
