Joss Whedon picks his bunkmates for The Cabin in the Woods

Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard have recruited Kristen Connolly (Revolutionary Road), Chris Hemsworth (Star Trek), Anna Hutchison (Underbelly), Fran Kranz (The Village) and Jesse Williams (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2) to join them in The Cabin in the Woods, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Richard Jenkins (The Visitor) and Bradley Whitford (Bottle Shock) had already signed in for the United Artists horror film.

The genre-tweaking screenplay was written by Whedon, who is producing, and Goddard, who is directing. The plot and character descriptions have been withheld by the filmmakers and the studio.

"Finding this ensemble has been very hard and very rewarding," Whedon said. "Each of the 'kids' is unique, fascinating and talented, and like true friends, the group is more than the sum of its parts. These are people you care about, able to go toe to toe with the amazing actors we've corralled thus far, and not unpretty in the bargain. I can't wait to harm them."
