Tokyopop has announced two additional major film-related graphic novel releases for 2010, including The Cabin in the Woods, which will be based on the upcoming horror film by Joss Whedon, and Priest: Purgatory, based on the movie Priest starring Paul Bettany, which is itself based on a manga manhwa by Min-Woo Hyung. This is according to a report on ICV2.
Both book adaptations are scheduled for release in 2010, and will likely coincide with the February 5th premiere of Cabin in the Woods and the August 13th run of Priest.
Cabin in the Woods, which is being directed by Drew Goddard, stars Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Jesse Williams, Chris Hemsworth, Fran Kranz, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Brian J. White and Amy Acker, and according to reports, puts a twisted and unusual twist on the familiar “cabin in the woods” formula.
Priest reunites Bettany with Legion director Scott Stewart, and will find him playing a priest who disobeys church law to track down vampires who’ve kidnapped his niece. That film also stars Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, Lily Collins, Stephen Moyer, Madchen Amick, Christopher Plummer and Brad Dourif.
