TIGER KING Director Teases a Sequel

TIGER KING Director Teases a Sequel

Tiger King co-director Eric Goode has opened up and shared that he doesn't believe a Hollywood version is a good idea.

Goode told Page Six, "I felt the documentary series really says it all. It'd be really hard to reenact in a way that would do justice to the story. Sometimes dramatization makes a story better, in this case, I'm not sure that it would."

However, Goode shares he already has footage for a potential second season of the docuseries.

He said, "There are a lot of questions that people would like answered, and we will see if we can answer those. We do have a ton of footage. We did film [more] after we locked picture. We did film the sentencing [of Joe Exotic] and John [Finlay] with his new teeth."

Among the eccentrics and cult personalities in the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners, few stand out more than Joe Exotic, a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo. Charismatic but misguided, Joe and an unbelievable cast of characters including drug kingpins, conmen, and cult leaders all share a passion for big cats, and the status and attention their dangerous menageries garner. But things take a dark turn when Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, threatens to put them out of business, stoking a rivalry that eventually leads to Joe's arrest for a murder-for-hire plot, and reveals a twisted tale where the only thing more dangerous than a big cat is its owner.
