The Cabin in the Woods is finally getting a release. The film, directed by Drew Goddard who co-wrote with Joss Whedon, has had a protracted journey to the big screen. Originally shot film in early 2009 with a pre-fame Chris Hemsworth in the lead, and a cast that includes Jesse Williams, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, and Richard Jenkins. MGM then delayed the movie to convert it to 3D, and then the film dropped off the radar thanks to the company’s bankruptcy.
Now Lionsgate have picked it up and issued a cool trailer. The trailer seems to show almost too much, however it looks intriging and is something I’m now looking forward too…
The film revolves around five college-type characters who head to a cabin in the woods and are given clear and clever instructions by “white collar” characters. Once the “victims” arrive at the cabin, it becomes clear that the plan is to lure the kids there to have them break the given instructions so that they might then be “punished.”
and a couple of piss-taking mock-ups of the orignal from last year.
