Here's good news for Joss Whedon and horror fans: 'The Cabin in the Woods,' co-written by Whedon and Drew Goddard ('Cloverfield'), finally has a release date: April 13, 2012. The film, now being handled by Lionsgate, has been sitting on the shelf since 2009 due to the financial problems at MGM, which was the original distributor. 'Cabin' stars now-big-time Chris Hemsworth as a young professional who visits a quaint cabin in the woods with a group of friends only to discover something horrifying there. Whedon, according to The Hollywood Reporter, describes it as "the horror movie to end all horror movies." 'Cabin' marks Goddard's directorial debut and co-stars Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Kristen Connolly, Brian J. White, Amy Acker, Fran Kranz and Jesse Williams.
