For those of you that got to watch 'Hatchet' this year, (if you haven't, go out and rent or buy the DVD) you are probably not surprised about this news considering the abrupt ending of the first film, but it looks like the possibility of Adam Green returning to direct 'Hatchet 2' is likely. Adam Green recently talked to the folks of 'Fangoria' about the possible sequel.
It all comes down to when it happens and if I'm available, as well as what the terms are, because often when they make these movies and realize they have a cult following, they try to cheap out in a lot of areas. You know, the budget becomes smaller because they're afraid that no one really cares or they don't pay what they need to in order to bring certain actors back.
I met Adam Green this summer in Toronto when he came to premiere his movie at the Bloor Theatre, and I really took a liking to him. At the Q&A, he told the audience that Hatchet is a planned trilogy. There are certain things in the movie that gives that away. He said there's a reason why the camera lingers on the kid with the pig mask who burns the Crowley house down in the flashback and why Victor Crowley was staring at Mary Beth for a long period of time.
In the possible sequel, he said that Tony Todd's character plays a much bigger part in the film and to the story, and that we will find out how Victor Crowley and Mary Beth are connected.
I don't think this is just a rumour. I have no doubt in my mind that audiences will see 'Hatchet 2' in the future. (You just can't waste a villain like Victor Crowley!)

So are you ready for another round with Victor Crowley?
User comment: By: AjaxLouNo, this movie was lame.
User comment: By: JamesI got Hatchet for Christmas and really loved the death scenes. So much gore and plenty of comedy throughout the film. The ending however, was a little confusing but I guess there was a reason for it. Also, after seeing Victor Crowley he really reminded me/looked like Jason from Friday the 13th Part 7. All in all I am excited about the second and third installments, only if Adam Green returns to do them. Since it is his project I certainly don't want someone else coming in and putting their spin on the franchise.
