Thanks to Lionsgate, Joss Wheldon’s ‘The Cabin in the Woods’ is finally being taken off the shelf and faces the prospect of being released. The project was completed in May 2009 yet up to this point has remained unviewed by audiences. Why the hold up?
Mike Fleming from Deadline recently reported that “the delay has little to do with the quality of the film. It was once slated to be released by MGM on Oct. 23, 2009, but was pulled back because it was going to be converted to 3D. Then, everything froze at MGM because of the strangling debt load, and The Cabin in the Woods was among several pictures that languished.”
Though it’s not entirely clear when Lionsgate will release ‘The Cabin in the Woods,’ October may be the month it finally makes its debut.
Interestingly enough, Chris Hemsworth stars in ‘Cabin’ so by the time it’s finally released, ‘Thor’ will have boosted him to stardom. Which means what exactly, you might be asking yourself? Well, in turn that may help drive more viewers to see ‘Cabin.’
