Update: Is the Lead Role Secured For ‘Cabin in the Woods’?

UPDATE: We just got off the phone with MGM who tells us Chris Hemsworth – who is starring in the forthcoming Star Trek and Milla Jovovich starrer The Perfect Getaway – has NOT booked a lead role in MGM’s super top secret horror/sci-fi pic Cabin in the Woods, as previously reported by various sources. As of this point he is currently in talks. Written by Joss Whedon and helmer Drew Goddard, the only confirmed cast members thus far are Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford. The film said to provide a new twist on a classic scenario — in this case the young-people-stranded-in-the-woods horror trope.Pictured: Chris Hemsworth
