A fun article about Amy’s comments during the NYC Comic Con regarding Joss Whedon’s new upcoming TV show, S.H.I.E.L.D. — which also confirms Cabin co-star Fran Kranz’s comment about Much Ado being released during Spring 2013 — happy reading!
Amy Acker has become something of a Joss Whedon regular thanks to her roles in projects like Angel, Dollhouse and Much Ado About Nothing, but she hasn’t yet been a part of his stake in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s not likely to change anytime soon, she told Spinoff Online during a roundtable New York Comic Con interview for Person of Interest.
Whedon is developing a S.H.I.E.L.D. television drama for ABC that he announced today will star Clark Gregg as the fan-favorite Agent Coulson. Although the series will feature an ensemble cast of character, Acker said she won’t be playing any of them.
“I don’t think I’ll be involved in S.H.I.E.L.D. but I’m very excited about S.H.I.E.L.D.” she said. “I think it’s going to be a great show.”
That said, she definitely wants to work with Whedon again. In addition to Much Ado, she hopes that he keeps having parts for her in his projects.
“I just did Much Ado About Nothing with Joss, so we have that,” she said. It’s very exciting, that will be coming out in the spring. I hope I get the chance to work with him again. He’s obviously a very important part of my life and my career. It’s a lucky person to get to say what they write, and it’s always really good.”

The UK poster for The Cabin in the Woods has been released, as well as several new stills — including the very first still featuring Amy! Both have been added to the gallery; preview to your right & gallery links are below. Not long to go ’til the release date…!
Several reviews have popped up online regarding The Cabin in the Woods — released in cinemas from April 13, 2012! — and they are very encouraging. Thus, I’ve posted a few extracts below featuring Amy’s character. Happy reading!
I feel like the less you know about this film, the better, so let’s begin with my capsule review version: The Cabin in the Woods is an incredibly clever and fun take on classic horror movie tropes centered around a group of kids going to a, you guessed it, cabin in the woods. Filmmakers Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard — the two wrote the film together with Whedon producing and Goddard directing — have come up with a wonderfully conceived story that gives a bigger than life and fascinating explanation for why so many horror movie cliches exist in the first place. If you’re a fan of the genre, you really have to check this movie out.
… Without giving away the specifics of their characters, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford make one hell of a duo and there’s some great back and forth between the two veteran actors, along with Whedon vet Amy Acker, who serves as a nice, cynical springboard for the two of them.
Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford have perhaps the most fun in the whole, but again to describe what their characters are up to would give away the plot of the film. Needless to say their scenes are quite darkly delightful, and nicely aided by a smart turn by Amy Acker (who starred in Buffy spin-off Angel) as one of their white-coated work-colleagues.
The official release date for The Cabin in the Woods has finally been announced: April 13, 2012 (and yes, it’s a Friday.) It’s nearly another year of waiting, but we’re bound to have some terrific promotion in the meantime! We also finally have a synopsis of sorts; posted below with the article.
Aside from Whedon producing and co-writing with frequent collaborator and Cloverfield and Buffy writer Drew Goddard (who’s also directing), Cabin stars Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth as a young professional who, with a group of friends, visits a rustic cabin in the woods (makes sense) “and ends up scratching the surface of something so massive and horrific that they can only begin to fathom it as time quickly runs out.” My guess is that it’s a busted septic line.
The film also stars Richard Jenkins (Let Me In), Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), Kristen Connolly (The Happening), Brian J. White (Stomp the Yard), Amy Acker (Angel), Fran Kranz (Donnie Darko), and Jesse Williams (Brooklyn’s Finest). Not much else has been said about the film, but with such names behind it, we can expect some genre-bending badassery (septic tank or not). Whedon himself has described it as, “The horror movie to end all horror movies,” though he may be slightly biased.
