Cabin in the Woods Gets A Distributor

It’s taken a long time but Joss Whedon’s “The Cabin in the Woods” may have finally found a home.

Lionsgate is making a deal with MGM to distribute the horror/comedy which Whedon and “Cloverfield” writer Drew Goddard co-wrote says Deadline.

Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford play white-collar co-workers who terrorise a group of young people (Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchinson, Kristen Connolly, Fran Kranz) who’ve become stranded in a forest.

Shot over two years ago, the project was initially delayed due to plans to convert it into 3D. Then it, along with the “Red Dawn” remake, became a victim of MGM’s financial issues.

Lionsgate haven’t set a specific date, but sometime around Halloween is the best bet.
