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 â€œCloverfieldâ€ scribe Drew Goddard.
â€œItâ€™s genius, itâ€™s funny,â€ Goddard said. â€œItâ€™s got a harder and darker edge, but itâ€™s also got classic Whedon qualities. Itâ€™ll rip your heart out and be heartfelt at the same time.â€ Enough with the hype, whatâ€™s it about? â€œThereâ€™s a reason the title is so straightforward,â€ Goddard teased. â€œItâ€™s its own sub-genre, the cabin in the woods, and this is sort of our take on it. Itâ€™s fresh and new.â€
Whedon, who said the pair are close to going out with the project, is producing the film too. â€œWriting is like a cave,â€ he explained. â€œYou have to go very far down, and you have to have time to get down there and come back up. But producing, that means youâ€™re involved with everything. Right now, that has more to do with very preliminary stuff, budgeting and whatnot, but itâ€™s still another thing on the list that keeps you having enough time to get into your artistic head.â€
Drew Goddard assured the site itâ€™ll be worth the wait. â€œThat man is a genre all to himself,â€ he said. â€œHeâ€™s comedy, horror, drama, all at once, and youâ€™ll never be able to classify it as one thing. What do you call it? At the end of the day, itâ€™s Joss.â€
