How's this for cool: CABIN IN THE WOODS is joining Halloween Horror Nights, the scary and fun horror themepark that goes up every October at Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando. (Actually, right now it seems as though it'll just be in the Orlando location.) Even cooler, the film's director and co-writer Drew Goddard is developing it!
Goddard spoke to Zap2it about the news, giving them some insightful details as to what can be expected from the maze.
We are building the cabin completely. You're going to walk through a forest to get there. You're going into the cabin. You're going to go into the cube cells. We're literally taking everything we can in the film and giving you a kind of best-of montage of the film with this kind of linking story... You're going to be in the control room when merman attacks."
That merman bit is worth the price of admission alone, I'm sure.
Here's some additional information from Universal Orlando Entertainment Team member Michael Aiello:
We're trying to adapt this film as best as we physically can in the context of what we have. The whole idea of the maze is to have varying creatures in it... In the maze, we've got many that were in the forefront of a lot of the scenes -- the ballerina, the Sugarplum Fairy, the Hell Lord -- but also too there are a couple rooms where we're kind of featuring some of the creatures that were just on the screens in the control room of movie. And then in the finale we've got a couple characters that could open up from Halloweens past, our own events, because we were granted amazing permission to be able to include some of our lineage into 'Cabin's' lineage."
Super cool, some crossing of horror properties can be expected!
We'll pass along more on CABIN IN THE WOODS at HHH when it comes in.
