Things are finally looking up for Drew Goddard. After a long period of lining up projects only to see them topple down, it looks like he’s stepping behind the camera again for what’ll be his second feature film. The Cabin in the Woods director just sold a spec script to Fox, entitled Bad Times at the El Royale. And so far, that’s all we know about it.
Recovering from a pretty weird start, Deadpool 2’s pre-production is currently underway with Deadpool scriptwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick back for a second go-round. Now, we’ve learned that the writing team is getting an assist from Daredevil writer and Cabin in the Woods writer-director Drew Goddard.
It looks like moviegoers weren’t the only ones who enjoyed the collaboration between Ridley Scott and Drew Goddard, as the director and writer of The Martian have decided to combine their talents once again for our viewing pleasure.

It was Daredevil star Charlie Cox who first let slip that Marvel Netflix teamup The Defenders would start shooting before 2016's end, throwing into question Daredevil Season 3, and now we can consider it official.

I don’t know how make a sequel to The Cabin in the Woods. But apparently a second Cabin (2 Cabin 2 Woods?) is possible anyway, at least if the film’s distributor, Lionsgate gets its way.
Let’s take a brief memory-trip back to the time before last year’s big Sony hack, when the studio had a lot of ambitious and sort of messy plans to rescue their Spider-Man franchise from itself. In addition to potential spinoffs (including an all-female movie and rumors of an Aunt May film), Sony was also planning a Sinister Six film with Drew Goddard writing and directing. Goddard’s project was the only real promising Spidey spinoff of the bunch, and it turns out that it might still see the light of day.
Early on in development of Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil, comic icon Drew Goddard signed on to take the reigns, only to bow out for Sony’s Sinister Six extension of the Amazing Spider-Man franchise. We all know how that went, but with Daredevil Season 2 on the horizon, how much more involved might Goddard be?
The Martian is probably the most fun you will ever have watching a bunch of nerds solve math problems.
