It’s been a long road for The Cabin in the Woods, the horror film with a twist co-written by Joss Whedon. The film was filmed in 2009, but through various production company problems, it’s been constantly pushed back. Finally, the first trailer has been released.
The Cabin in the Woods is about a group of college friends who go out to, you guessed it, a cabin in the woods. While it seems like you may know exactly how a horror film like this is going to play out, the first trailer hints at a much bigger conspiracy than just your run-of-the-mill serial killer ready to murder some twenty-somethings.
The film stars Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth. The film was co-written with Whedon by Drew Goddard, who also worked on TV shows like Lost and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Goddard’s first film writing credit was for Cloverfield; this will be his first film directing.
The Cabin in the Woods is scheduled to finally be released on April 13 2012. Check out the first trailer below:
