The Cabin in the Woods has been delayed and delayed by MGM. It was originally slated for a February 5th release in 2010 and then it was pushed back till January 14th, 2011 so that the film could be converted to 3D, but of course MGM continued to have financial problems and eventually delayed it indefinitely.
In comes Lionsgate for the purchase of both The Cabin in the Woods and Red Dawn (remake). Lionsgate announced the two purchases on April 28th, 2011 and said that The Cabin in the Woods will be coming out this October.
Word on the film has been very positive. A new twist on a classic scenario is what people are saying and I can’t fucking wait. The few posters that have been released are simple and awesome and while this new image doesn’t provide much, it still helps get things going. I’d imagine it won’t be too long until we get a trailer.
The Cabin in the Woods stars Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and Jesse Williams.
