Movie News: The Cabin in the Woods

Reading about this movie actually made me think of one of my favorite made-for-TV horror movies...

...but I digress. Cabin in the Woods is a top-secret horror movie written by Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Joss Whedon and Cloverfield's Drew Goddard. They have finally started casting people, and it's all dudes so far. We've got the West Wing's Bradley Whitford and Six Feet Under's Richard Jenkins, who was actually most recently the dad in Stepbrothers. I'm pinning Richie to be whatever middle-aged crazy hermit guy is up in this joint.
Drew Goddard is telling the gossips that "...though The Cabin in the Woods is a classic horror film, it isn't one you've seen before." Hmmmm, I'll believe that when I see it. Call me jaded, but I've just seen a few too many screaming teenagers chased through the woods by men with some sort of weird complex to think that they're breaking new ground here.
This movie drops on February 5, 2010, so we've got plenty of time to speculate.
