Whedon, Goddard for 'Cabin In The Woods'
The pair, who worked together on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, have co-written the script for the big screen project.
"There's a reason the title is so straightforward," Goddard told MTV. "It's its own sub-genre, the cabin in the woods, and this is sort of our take on it. It's fresh and new."
He added: "It's genius, it's funny. It's got a harder and darker edge, but it's also got classic Whedon qualities. It'll rip your heart out and be heartfelt at the same time."
