The trailer for the horror thriller “The Cabin in the Woods” has popped up online and no one is more relieved than the fans of producer and co-writer Joss Whedon.
Loyal Whedonites have been waiting a long, long, long time for “Cabin in the Woods,” which was filmed in early 2009 and originally slated to debut in early 2010, but was left in a protracted limbo because of the bankruptcy of its studio, MGM.
Now Lionsgate has agreed to distribute the film, which promises to offer a twist on the classic teenagers trapped in a remote cabin genre (see: “Evil Dead” and “Cabin Fever”).
The film is the directorial debut of former “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” writer Drew Goddard, who also wrote “Cloverfield” and features a number of Whedon veterans in the cast, including Fran Kranz (“Dollhouse”), Amy Acker (“Dollhouse” and “Angel”) and Tom Lenk (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel”).
What exactly is going on inside this cabin? And why aren’t cast members Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins featured in the trailer? Audiences will find out on April 13, 2012.
