Lionsgate task Drew Goddard with surprise Cabin in the Woods sequel

Despite critical acclaim, the Joss Whedon produced Cabin in the Woods failed to set the box office alight. Thankfully it did find a modest following on home release and that has prompted Lionsgate to start work on developing a sequel.

During promotional duties for The Martian, the original film's co-writer, Drew Goddard revealed to Den of Geek that the studio had approached him to work on it.

"The funny part is, I don’t think we planned that movie to do a sequel, you know?” - Drew Goddard


Cabin in the Woods was originally developed by MGM but ended up being shelved for a couple of years thanks to that studio's financial woes. It starred Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford.
