Preview:

  • Eli Roth will make a sequel to his holiday-themed slasher movie ‘Thanksgiving’
  • He says he’ll take his time with the script to get it right.
  • The movie should be in theaters by late 2025.

It took 16 years for co-writer/director Eli Roth to finally realize his dream of making the full movie that his trailer for ‘Thanksgiving’ –– released as part of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’ ‘Grindhouse‘ –– teased, but it appears we’ll be getting a second helping a lot quicker. Because, after all… aren’t second helpings all part of the fun of Thanksgiving?

So, while the first film’s tagline read, “there will be no leftovers”, it looks like we’re all in for more Pilgrim-masked mayhem, as Roth has announced that ‘Thanksgiving’ sequel is in the early planning stages.

“There will be no leftovers.”

Roth made the announcement via Instagram…

 

The filmmaker revealed that he and Jeff Rendell –– who wrote the ‘Thanksgiving’ script based on a story that Roth and he cooked up –– will be taking some time to make sure that the script is right before he starts shooting the new movie.

He also explained how excited he is to have a slasher horror franchise (Roth has previously had a franchise, albeit more in the torture horror genre via the ‘Hostel’ movies).

What will happen in ‘Thanksgiving 2’?

While we won’t specify what happens at the end of the first film, it does open up some intriguing possibilities given what we learned about the reasons for the seasonal slaying/kidnapping.

And if the likes of ‘Scream’, ‘Halloween’ and other horror franchises can keep its killer coming back in different ways, then surely Roth will have some fun ideas up his sleeve. And you know he’s already rubbing his hands in anticipation of new kills.

When will ‘Thanksgiving 2’ be on screens?

Sony has yet to confirm an official date for the ‘Thanksgiving’ sequel, but Roth says the aim is to have it in theaters in 2025, most likely in November.
