    CAST:

    Cast (in credits order)

    Joaquin Phoenix
    Bryce Howard
    William Hurt
    Sigourney Weaver .... Alice
    Adrien Brody

    Plot Outline: Set in 1897, "The Woods" tells the story of a close-knit community with a mythical race of creatures residing in the woods around them.


    Sounds like something awesome can come out of this, although I am not a big Sigourney fan.

    I'm looking forward to this one. The plot sounds like something out of Lovecraft. I hope Night has James Newton Howard do the soundtrack again. Who am I kidding, of course he will! [​IMG]

    Yes, excellent cast... Adrien Brody and Joaquin Phoenix in the same movie? What, are you kidding me... I am so there.

    The only issue I have is William Hurt. I dunno, I just do not like his acting. I find it... mmm.. slightly wooden, I guess you would say. He seems out of sorts stylistically with the others mentioned. That may add to the movie's character though I guess.

    Yeah Bob, if someone can make good use of Hurt's style of acting, I would think it's M. Night. [​IMG]

    BTW, I loved him in Dark City - that's another case where the director used Hurt perfectly, IMO.

    It sounds awesome! I will be a bit timid after having the daylights scared out of me by Signs. Amazing after a lifetime of Friday the 13ths, Nightmares, Wes Craven films, etc., nothing affected me as much as Signs did. I must say he is amazing.

    Any speculation of what these mythical creatures will be doing? Attacking or eating the town?

    Is this scheduled for release in 2003?

    Either way, I really like the idea for the story. Sounds great.[​IMG]

    Night is one of the few guys who keeps coming up with new stuff. I am so there it's not even funny. He is 3 for 3 so far and I hope many more to go.

    I read the Woods entry on imdb a couple of weeks ago, and just the summary gave me goosebumps.

    If all those actors aren't enough to grab attention, one of the producers for The Woods is Sam Mercer who is Executive producing Van Helsing. Production on this movie is going to be outstanding! :b
