Drew Goddard clarifies his scripting involvement with World War Z and says he's writing something new
After THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, I'll see just about anything co-writer/directorDrew Goddard deems it fit to involve himself with. As it turns out, seeing something partially written by Drew Goddard isn't all too far off as the man has fortunately (or unfortunately?) become involved (or entangled?) with the much-reported-about WORLD WAR Z.
While we've gone into plenty of the production's woes in the past, the long weeks of Fall reshoots are looming and so Goddard has taken some time to clarify the extent of his involvement and his opinion about how the production is really going after Damon Lindelof brought him in to help redo the film's third act:
“I think a lot of that got blown out of proportion. It really was like, they asked me to come look at the movie and give ideas on how to help, and that’s what happened. That happens all the time, I don’t know why this got blown up with World War Z and it suddenly became a big thing. It’s the sort of thing that happens with screenwriters all the time where you give your ideas on what could help, you write some scenes for people… I feel bad for the sort of magnifying glass that that movie’s under because this is just a normal part of the process, this is just what happens… My involvement was just watch the movie, give some ideas, write some scenes that might help, ADR, just sort of fill in stuff, which is what I did.”
So there you have it. I'm not sure what it is, but it's there. And now you have it.
In other news, Drew Goddard also revealed that he's currently hard at work on writing his next project, though "he can’t reveal the genre of what he’s writing because he doesn’t really know it." And before that begins to worry you, Goddard "still doesn’t know the genre of Cabin in the Woods," so the not-knowing business isn't exactly new territory.
