Lionsgate Buys A Cabin In The Woods

After years of waiting, mainly due to financial problems at MGM and a planned conversion to 3-D, Cabin in the Woods has a distributor.

Deadline Hollywood says Lionsgate will distribute the film, which is co-written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, and directed by Goddard. Fans have heard about this horror movie ever since Comic-Con two years ago. It was supposed to be released in October 2009, but was delayed because of a planned conversion to 3-D. The released was pushed back twice to February of 2010 and last January, mainly due to financial problems with MGM.

In the end, this may benefit the film. It features Chris Hemsworth, who will be starring in Thor next week. If that movie is a hit, it’s bound to benefit Cabin. The film also features Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford. No release date has been set, but October may be a possibility.
