Joss Whedon, whose “Dollhouse” with Eliza Dushku premieres on Fox in January, tells MTV that while his proposed horror fantasy Goners is on the backburner at Universal, he is instead writing and producing Cabin in the Woods.
He co-wrote the project with “Buffy” alum and Cloverfield screenwriter Drew Goddard. “It’s genius, it’s funny,” Goddard said about the film. “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.”
So what is it about? “There’s a reason the title is so straightforward,” Goddard added. “Its its own sub-genre, the cabin in the woods, and this is sort of our take on it. It’s fresh and new.”
