Joss Whedon, Drew Goddard Sued Over 'The Cabin in the Woods'

Post by El Jefe on Wed Apr 15, 2015 1:31 pm

An author is suing Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard for copyright infringement, alleging The Cabin in the Woods filmmakers stole the premise of his novel for their 2012 horror movie.

Whedon, the Avengers: Age of Ultron director and Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator, produced and co-wrote the movie with Goddard, who directed it.

But author Peter Gallagher has accused the two of them of ripping him off his 2006 book, The Little White Trip: A Night in the Pines, and is asking for $10 million in damages, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The suit, which also names Lionsgate and Whedon’s production company, claims the film unlawfully borrows the book’s plot (a group of young people encounters monsters at a cabin that’s secretly controlled), as well as certain key scenes and the personalities of Gallagher’s characters. Lionsgate declined to comment to THR, while Whedon and Goddard’s camps had yet to respond.
