Joss Whedon on upcoming projects

Joss Whedon on upcoming projects

Speaking to MTV, Joss Whedon (“Serenity”, “Buffy”, the upcoming “Dollhouse”) says ”Goners”, the horror film he’s been developing with Universal for a while, has been put on the back-burner. Instead, Capt. Fantastic has turned his attention to something else, “Cabin in the Woods”, which he co-wrote with “Cloverfield” scribe Drew Goddard.

“It’s genius, it’s funny,” Goddard said. “It’s got a harder and darker edge, but it’s also got classic Whedon qualities. It’ll rip your heart out and be heartfelt at the same time.” Enough with the hype, what’s it about? “There’s a reason the title is so straightforward,” Goddard teased. “It’s its own sub-genre, the cabin in the woods, and this is sort of our take on it. It’s fresh and new.”

Whedon, who said the pair are close to going out with the project, is producing the film too. “Writing is like a cave,” he explained. “You have to go very far down, and you have to have time to get down there and come back up. But producing, that means you’re involved with everything. Right now, that has more to do with very preliminary stuff, budgeting and whatnot, but it’s still another thing on the list that keeps you having enough time to get into your artistic head.”

Drew Goddard assured the site it’ll be worth the wait. “That man is a genre all to himself,” he said. “He’s comedy, horror, drama, all at once, and you’ll never be able to classify it as one thing. What do you call it? At the end of the day, it’s Joss.”
