MGM finally let the proverbial cat out of the bag tonight in terms of the casting of the Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s latest film, “>The Cabin in the Woods, and I have to say things are shaping up quite nicely.
The film will star Kristen Connolly (The Happening), Chris Hemsworth (Star Trek), Anna Hutchison (“Underbelly”, “Go Girls”), Fran Kranz (The Village), and Jesse Williams (Brooklyn’s Finest). They join the previously announced cast members Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, Burn After Reading) and Bradley Whitford (Bottle Shock, “The West Wing”) in The Cabin in the Woods.
Directed by Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) from a screenplay by Goddard and Joss Whedon, who is also producing, the film’s plot is a closely held secret. As such, details surrounding the actors’ roles are being kept under wraps.
“Finding this ensemble has been very hard and very rewarding,” observed Whedon, who continued, “Each of the ‘kids’ is unique, fascinating and talented, and like true friends, the group is more than the sum of its parts. These are people you care about, able to go toe-to-toe with the amazing actors we’ve corralled thus far, and not unpretty in the bargain. I can’t wait to harm them.”
Production is under way; the film is slated to open wide on February 5, 2010.
