TV & FILM
bill-swift - December 19, 2005
ComingSoon.com talked with Joss Whedon (the creator of Buffy, Angel, and Firefly/Serenity) about how he took his cancelled sci-fi TV series Firefly to the big screen as Serenity. If you haven't seen the movie yet, this interview will be kinda spoilery, so you should really just hit the link below, and pick yourself up a copy of the Serenity DVD, which comes out tomorrow. He also talks a little about his work on the upcoming Wonder Woman film, though details are fairly few.
CS: Will you try to get "Goner" done first and then move onto "Wonder Woman"? How far are you into writing the movie?
Whedon: Oh, yeah. I'm deep into the script, but it's unsure which will be first. It's very possible that "Wonder Woman" will be first. When I finish the script for "Wonder Woman," I then will have a chance to sit in front of the two different producers and then see what I do first.
CS: Do you have an actress in mind to play the Amazon warrior?
Whedon: No, I don't.
For those of you who want more of the Firefly/Serenity franchise, Joss did have this to say about the his plans for the future of the 'Verse:
CS: What's going to happen with the "Serenity" franchise now? Are you just going to put it on the backburner?
Whedon: Yeah, you know, that's pretty much it. It was hard to make and I'm very tired. I need some sleep, and then we'll see if people are interested in more, than I have more say.
So you know what that means... Go buy the Serenity DVD now, and we might get more! The DVD is currently #2 on Amazon.com.
