Just got off the phone with a contact at MGM. He confirmed director Drew Goddard’s “Cabin in the Woods” (co-written by Joss Whedon) has been moved from February 5, 2010 to January 14, 2011. While moving release dates is usually a sign of problems, in this case, the early reactions have been so strong that MGM is spending some cash to convert the film into a 3D experience. The new release date is due to having to wait until enough 3D theaters would have the space to play it. After all, if you release a 3D movie, you need 3D screens, and with the abundance of 3D movies already scheduled in 2010, they had to go further out. While this means we’re all going to have to wait a lot longer for Joss Whedon’s horror film, I’m cool with it. I just wish they had originally filmed the movie in 3D and not been forced to retrofit the technology. Saying that, I’m sure it will be very cool. More as we get it.
