It’s been a long time coming, but we’re one step closer to actually being able to see The Cabin in the Woods. Co-written by Joss Whedon (Buffy, The Avengers) and Drew Goddard (Angel, Lost), with the former producing and the latter directing, the film was finally picked up and given a release date of April 13, thanks to Lionsgate. Now Ain’t It Cool News has scored a little something else to show off: the film’s first poster.
Harry Knowles had the chance to talk to Whedon and Goddard, but got about as close to nothing out of an interview as is humanly possible, as the filmmakers played coy as coy can be. Lionsgate did send a brief synopsis, though, that gives the slightest of details:
Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes The Cabin in the Woods, a mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out.
Plagued by problems related to MGM’s money woes, the film will have been delayed about two years by the time it’s actually released. When shot, this was supposed to be Chris Hemsworth’s big breakout performance after wowing audiences as Captain Kirk’s dad in Star Trek, but he, of course, has since gone on to play Marvel’s Thor. With little information and fan favorites involved, expect anticipation and curiosity to grow between now and April.
