CABIN IN THE WOODS To See The Light Of Day After All


     It looks like Joss Whedon's long-awaited horror film THE CABIN IN THE WOODS will be released after all. According to Deadline, Lionsgate is making a deal with MGM to distribute the movie.

     CABIN fell victim to MGM's financial woes. It was scheduled released back in 2009, but was pulled off the slate to be converted to 3D. Then, like everything else at MGM, the film was frozen while the studio dealt with its debt.

     Nevertheless, the wait may ultimately pay off for the studio. CABIN stars Chris Hemsworth, who, by the time the film is released, will have rocketed to stardom from his role in THOR. His name on the marquee may pull in those moviegoers who would not ordinarily have forked over the cash to see the film.

     CABIN is directed by CLOVERFIELD writer Drew Goddard. Whedon co-wrote the film with Goddard and produced it.
