“Buffy” creator Joss Whedon has essentially abandoned plans to make the horror fantasy “Goners” at Universal Pictures and is instead focusing on “Cabin in the Woods”.
Drew Goddard (TV’s “Lost,” “Cloverfield”) co-wrote the script with Whedon and the scribe tells MTV News that “It’s genius, it’s funny. 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.”
The pair have yet to shop the project around but Whedon is set to produce the film as well. Whedon also confirmed that despite co-writing the comic, he will not be involved with Brian K. Vaughan’s adaptation of “Runaways”.
