The history of this project is really starting to piss me off. When I first heard about this movie back in 2008 / 2009, I couldn't have been more excited. Joss Whedon producing and co-writing? Check! Drew Goddard co-writing and directing? Check! Great cast? Check! Then, MGM, in an attempt to cash in on the 3D craze and make more money to get out of debt, delayed the film from its February 2010 release date all the way to January 2011 (for a cheap, shitty 3D post-conversion too). Now, it seems, the film may not see the light of day at all. MGM is bankrupt, they can't find someone to run the company and no one seems to want to distribute their films (except for James Bond which, ironically, MGM can't even afford to make ... let alone distribute). So, don't be surprised if this gets shelved indefinitely, only to make it's way to DVD only (not even Blu-ray) in a few years, like so many of it's fellow horror brethren before it.
