Man it seems I've been waiting for Joss Whedon's THE CABIN IN THE WOODS foreverrrrrrrrr... Well, it seems that the wait for this development hell fright flick might finally be over! Word on the street is that this campy twist on the lonely cabin horror movie has at last been picked up by Lionsgate Films (after sitting on a shelf for a year and a half waiting for MGM to get their bankruptcy squared away). If you haven't heard of it, here's the lowdown on what is sure to be a fun ride:
The Cabin in the Woods is an American 3D tongue-in-cheek thriller-horror film, co-written and directed by Drew Goddard and co-written and produced by Joss Whedon. It stars Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and Amy Acker. It aims to provide a new twist on the classic young-people-stranded-in-the-woods horror trope. Jenkins and Whitford will play white-collar co-workers with a mysterious connection to the cabin when a group of college kids spend a mysterious weekend there.
