Joss Whedon, best known for making corny science fiction/supernatural teen dramas and Drew Goddard, writer of Lost and Cloverfield. Lost was a win for him but Cloverfield on the other hand recieved mixed reviews *most of which commented on the nauseating faux realistic camera work. I can only guess how this will turn out.
From looking at the posters it seems that they'll either make a play on typical horror movies of this day and age or fall right into the stereotype. Who knows maybe this time the characters will do everything right instead of the other way around. That wouldn't make it very interesting though. Lets face it, we like to see the bitch run in heels and break her ankle falling.
