Joss’d News: Horror Hacker asks “What Are Whedon and Goddard Building With Cabin in the Woods?”

In a fun little article over at AMC’s Horror Hacker Blog writer Todd Brown asks what Whedon and Goddard are doing with Cabin in the Woods:

So who would be the face of the film? Would you believe the dead father from Six Feet Under (Richard Jenkins) and cabinet member from The West Wing (Bradley Whitford)? Was this a sign that Whedon and Goddard are staying away from the usual teen-horror cast? Or were they playing a bit of bait and switch, announcing supporting players first to keep people guessing about the leads? “It’s really just your basic typecasting,” said Goddard, “when you need two actors to run through the woods in low-cut nighties, you immediately think of Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford.” While nobody was quite sure where they were going with this, hardcore horror fans were certainly intrigued. Over at Bloody Disgusting commenter GreekThunder said, “This will, as everyone knows, be an excellent film as long as the studios keep out of it and let the two on their own.”

I’m really rather excited about all this and can’t wait for “Cabin in the Woods.” To read the rest of this article visit: http://blogs.amctv.com/horror-hacker/2009/01/joss-whedon-cabin-in-the-woods.php
