Question: That sort of brings us to my next question- you guys really don’t do many sequels, barring V/H/S/2, but that’s more of a companion piece than a sequel to me; so even though you and Adam aren’t necessarily known for sequels, have you guys talked at all about ideas for a follow-up to You’re Next yet?
Simon Barrett: We did V/H/S/2 so yeah, we’re not necessarily opposed to doing sequels; we’re just opposed to making sequels without anything new to say. That’s when you’re making a sequel for the wrong reasons. I think Adam and I will probably do a non-genre movie next before we’d come back for another You’re Next, if we do at all. The tricky things with sequels is to not be too self-indulgent as storytellers; sometimes it can be a dangerous thing if you’re left to your own devices or if you try and pander to your audience.
All that being said, we do have an extremely cool idea for a You’re Next sequel that would continue the story from the first movie which would feel real and organic. Because of how we structured the story of You’re Next, we sort of set ourselves up for a lot of challenges with creating a sequel but I think those are the kinds of challenges that appeal to Adam and myself the most. We can’t just make another one because we want to; there has to be a reason, and that reason has to be feel organic to the original.
