Joss Whedon Says A Cabin In The Woods Sequel Could Be Possible
Joss Whedon does not want us to spoil Cabin In the Woods. He went so far as to share a special video message warning people about giving away the plot of the horror comedy. And we have no intention of spoiling the ride for fans, either. Part of the film’s massive appeal is its element of surprise, so trust us, steer clear of trailers and commercials for as long as you can. The movie comes out on April 13.
But if there’s one thing we know about horror films, it’s that they routinely spawn multiple sequels. And so, during an exclusive chat with Whedon at SXSW, I asked him if he and co-writer/director Drew Goddard would consider revisiting the world. And while parts of his answer referenced things that happen in the movie (and you won’t hear them from us), I do find it interesting that the Cabin team at least has floated the idea of future Cabin stories. Here’s Whedon:
The movie is a gift, a love letter to the horror genre and all of its time-tested conventions--including sequels, which Cabin deserves. So support it, and strong, original voices like Whedon and Goddard will be able to continue telling stories their way.
We’ll have plenty more Cabin coverage closer to its April 13 release date, including our full Whedon interview and a conversation with Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford. Also, if you haven’t read Katey’s spoiler-free rave, it’s well worth your time!
