As we near the tenth anniversary (?!) of Eli Craig’s Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, one of our favorite horror-comedies of the past decade, we're still hoping that we'll one day see a sequel. Well, Alex over at Broke Horror Fan just had a chat with Tyler Labine about Escape Room, and he teased that something regarding our two favorite hillbillies is in the works!
"We’re working on something right now. I wouldn’t call it a film sequel, but the story is not done being told," said Labine.
He continued, "I can’t really tell you much, but we’re in development with a couple things right now. Things are looking pretty good. Alan and I are both still on board, along with Eli. We’re just trying to line up a few pieces. It’s just a matter of timing. We’re going to get something to the fans, because that’s really the only reason we want to do it. No one’s getting rich off this thing. Alan and I have always been like, ‘Whatever we do has to be for the people that stuck with it and made it what it is.’ That’s all the fans. Hopefully something will come to fruition."
In Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, two scruffy pals' (Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk) backwoods vacation takes a bloody turn when ignorant college students mistake them for a pair of murderous hillbillies.
