Fran Kranz on his belief in The Cabin in the Woods. Some very minor details about his character. Also a fun story about Fran and his faith in the movie after the jump.

Fran did a convention a year ago. He was bummed about Cabin. He got everybody drinks and toasted at the bar with some fans one evening to Cabin finally getting released. As soon as I left I emailed Whedonesque's b!X and said something along the lines of 'we have to do something. Target Lionsgate'. B!X started, we social media'ed things up, and off went those posters. One day, Fran will pay off that bar bill from his credit card.

And I will never forget the look on his face when he got that bar bill! That place was ridiculously expensive.
Later this year, Kranz returns to the screen in Whedon's adaptation of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing."

Later this year . . . does that mean there is something definite in the works? Like an actual release date, or festival scheduled?
I don't get the bitch, gossi. As I see it, "The Cabin in the Woods" is a success. Did I miss something?
Just 12 more days. Unreal.
We saw the movie last night at the Atlanta Film Festival... Do I really have to wait 12 days to see it again? It was perfection! Everything you've heard is right, go in clueless. You'll be happy you did :)
I was at the convention a year ago, in London (hi gossi!). It's hard to believe now that only a year ago we all felt like Cabin would never be released. Fran was understandably rather low at the time, but still was great to the fans. I missed out on the bar hangout, though...
floofypooh, I just asked Jay Hunter (the DP) on Friday if he knew anything and he did not. Sounds like the movie is close to done with post-production, but I don't know how close. I wouldn't be surprised if they submit to Sundance (or another top festival) first, meaning its first festival would be no sooner than January 2013. That is complete speculation though, I've no idea what their plans are.

But with Cabin coming out soon, and Avengers shortly after, count me a happy man. :)
Drew Goddard said last night that the movie was done, and it was great, so maybe we'll hear something soon!
