Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers) and Kai Cole’s micro-studio Bellwether Pictures has set a follow-up, a supernatural romance entitled In Your Eyes, reports Deadline. Whedon wrote the script and Brin Hill will direct.
“ ‘In Your Eyes’ is a metaphysical love story about two seemingly polar opposites who are deeply connected in ways neither could have ever imagined.”
While pegged as supernatural, the script is said to be a comedy that reads like a drama with romantic overtones. READ MORE

The Eighth ‘season’ of Joss Whedon’s “BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER” was for all intents and purposes, BETTER than the final season of the cult classic TV series, which saw its run on The CW come to an end after 7 years with the network. Some would call the series “Another Generation’s Twilight”, but I have Colt .45 for that, and a proper distaste for its fans. Figuratively, of course. But I digress. The point is that the “AVENGERS” director himself will be getting back to his roots with Dark Horse Comics, and inside we have your first look at the title’s first issue. Read on for the skinny…

Except Buffy has left her best friend, Willow, powerless, and ended the long line of vampire slayers, leaving her hated by the hundreds of girls who recently stood behind her. Newly relocated to San Francisco, Buffy can count on a fresh start, and focus on what she’s good at—slaying.”

Almost two years after its original release date, Lionsgate has stepped up as the distributor of The Cabin In The Woods after MGM’s financial woes kept it from being released. No official release date has been set, but I’ll take a shot in the dark and guess October for now.
While I’m excited knowing that I’ll get to see the film a lot sooner than I thought, I’m a bit conflicted about how it’s going to be received. It definitely has geek allure – with Joss Whedon gaining more buzz than usual from his Avengers directing gig and Chris Hemsworth blowing up more and more by the day for starring role in Thor – but in a post-Scream 4 world, how well is a R-rated self-aware horror-comedy going to do?
