The Deep Dark Woods to make appearance in Romantic Thriller

Saskatoon indie folk group to appear in major American film

Saskatoon’s The Deep Dark Woods will be appearing in the upcoming movie Safe Haven.

The folk foursome will be playing themselves while performing their original song “My Baby’s Got To Pay The Rent” during a 4th of July party.

The movie also features Josh Duhamel, Julianne Hough, David Lyons and Cobie Smulders.

According to the one-liner, Safe Haven is “an affirming and suspenseful story about a young woman’s struggle to love again.” It also appears to be about a guy with a fancy haircut, a bicycle, an impromptu nude romp, a canoe trip and a bus ride to some kind of, uhm, secure refuge?

Further sealing the deal, the film is set to be released on Valentine’s Day. Daw.

Unfortunately the trailer doesn’t feature the Deep Dark Woods and instead you get to hear a painful cover of a Fleetwood Mac song, which apparently isn’t even on the soundtrack.

Even worse, according to, “the movie is NOT playing in Saskatoon. And it doesn’t seem to be playing anywhere in Canada neither.”

UPDATE: Thanks to our astute readers, it has been noted that Safe Haven actually is playing in Saskatoon on Love Day, according to Galaxy Cinema’s website.

The Deep Dark Woods song is pretty awesome though. Click the Soundcloud link below to give it a listen.

The group’s last album, The Place I Left Behind, was released in 2011 and was nominated for a Juno Award for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year.
