Warner Bros. has been sitting on the film adaptation rights to ElfQuest for a long time. They were close to actually making a movie, but now the rights have been acquired by independent filmmakers Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes. Who are they? They're the people who made this ElfQuest fan-short back in 2011.
"Cabin in the Woods" is an upcoming sci-fi horror film produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, and directed by Drew Goddard. The movie was originally scheduled to be released nearly two years ago. MGM dropped it due to financial dificulties, and Lionsgate picked up the film earlier this year. What's cool about this is it means we get to see pre-"Thor" Chris Hemsworth.
