Adam Wingard & Simon Barrett

The filmmaking duo of director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett have pumped out some fantastic indie genre fare from You're Next to last year's The Guest, not to mention segments in the horror anthologies V/H/S and The ABCs of Death, and now they're returning to horror yet again. THR has word that Wingard and Barrett will reteam on a project called The Woods set up at Lionsgate. As of now, the project is being kept under wraps, but the vague description will sound familiar to anyone who has ever seen a horror movie as it follows a group of college students on a camping trip who discover they are not alone.

Of course, knowing Wingard and Barrett, the story won't be that simple, and they'll bring something original into the mix, even if it's just their overall style on the page and behind the camera. No word on any cast members yet as the project is just now gaining traction, but it sounds like they'll utilize a cast of mostly unknowns anyway. Even so, Wingard and Barrett are enough to get me interested; they're like the Duplass Brothers of indie genre projects. It doesn't sound like we'll have to wait too long to see how this one turns out since production is slated to begin sometime in the spring, so stay tuned.
