I had the extreme pleasure of hosting a Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil panel with Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine this past Friday at HorrorHound Weekend in Cincinnati, Ohio (full disclosure, yours truly is a staff writer at HorrorHound Magazine). I can safely say it was the most fun I’ve ever had hosting a panel in my life. Tudyk and Labine were so open and genial with the crowd, really letting the fans in on the process of making the film, its release and subsequent sequel.
Yep, that’s right. They announced there is a sequel in development! The following clip shows as the surprise announcement unfolded. Essentially, while Tudyk was at SXSW he told an inquiring interviewer that there wouldn’t be a sequel based on what he had heard. Once that interview broke one of the producers contacted him to correct what he had been under the impression of. I will say I was unaware that this announcement was going to be happening during the panel so I was as taken aback as anyone. As you can see in the clip he really did just blurt it out, taking the audience by surprise and elating them.
No details are known just yet, but I personally am waiting intently to hear what Tucker & Dale might get up to this time around!
Special thanks to my friend Mike Dobrzelecki who not only recorded the whole panel but stayed up til the wee hours fighting a stomach bug while editing and uploading this clip for our enjoyment!
