I'm incredibly excited to report that a sequel to Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil is going into development! If you haven't seen the first movie yet, it's freakin' hilarious, and you need to watch it. I loved that movie, and unfortunately it didn't get the theatrical release that it deserved.
The stars of the film,Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk, made the announcement at Horrorhound in Cincinnati, OH this past weekend. The producers of the movie contacted them to say a sequel is currently in development. I honestly never thought that would happen, so I couldn't be more happily surprised. Thanks to Bigger Show you can watch a video of the announcement below.
Labine went on to say that he and Tudyk are very protective of the horror comedy property and that they will “never make a shitty sequel.” So if the producers want them back to reprise their roles, the producers will have to show them that they can deliver an awesome sequel. For those of you not familiar with the first film, here's the synopsis:
Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated mountain house, who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count.
The sequel may not happen anytime soon as it's still in the early stages of development, but it's something to look forward to.
