FANGORIA is reporting that Joss Whedon’s horror flick THE CABIN IN THE WOODS is set to hit theaters on October 23, 2009, putting it in direct competition with SAW VI, and despite the fact that CABIN has yet to confirm a cast or production start date! THE CABIN IN THE WOODS will be directed by Drew Goddard from a script he co-wrote with Joss Whedon. Goddard wrote this year’s hit CLOVERFIELD, and Whedon is the creator of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, FIREFLY and the recent internet web series hit DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG. SAW VI is being helmed by SAW 1-5 editor Kevin Greutert and is locked for an October 30th, 2009 release. Little details are available in regards to either film, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear something!
