The man responsible for two of the most commercially successful films in history is soon gonna be making a mark on the horror genre in a big way. In an interview with Complex, Joss Whedon confirmed that he’s working on a historical fiction/horror script. He was quoted as saying:

“I’m in the middle of a screenplay that I am extremely passionate about, and I am going to be extremely passionate about it again on November 9. It’s definitely a departure from the things that I’m known for. It’s as dark as anything I’ve ever written … It’s a historical fiction slash horror movie about a time when the world was going insane, World War II. I got to tell you: I was in Germany and Poland doing research for this movie and I was seeing so many parallels [to the U.S.]. And I know it’s a shopworn thing to compare the orange guy to the little guy with the mustache, but you see things, indelible things in terms of propaganda, the state of the country, and the parallels are eerie as fuck.”

There’s no word on whether or not he’ll also direct, but the last time he ventured into horror was with the fantastic The Cabin in the Woods, so this news has us grinning from ear to ear. We’ll certainly be keeping a close watch on this story as it develops.
