As long as there have been Browncoats, there have been rumors of another Firefly film. And as long as there have been rumors, there’s been Joss having to set the record straight.
Well, he’s done it again. Can’t say I blame him. But I’m still disappointed. Can’t say I blame us.
â€œThe rumors are there because people really wish it would happen,â€ Whedon said.
“Itâ€™s an improbable fantasy,â€ Whedon said. Then again, â€œso was making â€˜Serenityâ€™ [given the cancellation of 'Firefly'], and so is half my career, which is why I never write it off.â€
Like Summer, â€œIâ€™d do it in a heartbeat,â€ Whedon said, â€œbecause I love those people so much.â€ But that doesnâ€™t change the fact that the rumors are not being circulated â€œby anyone who owns a studio,â€ and â€œnobodyâ€™s knocking on our door.â€
â€œThereâ€™s been no movement,â€ he said. â€œThose rumors are just rumors, and I donâ€™t think theyâ€™re going to stop, no matter how many times I say, â€˜No, itâ€™s not happening.â€™ Because somebody will say, â€˜He said yes. His eyes said yes. His nose said yes. There was a yes-iness about him.â€™ Because people want it.â€
