Joss Whedon talks Firefly

The second I heard that the creator of "Veronica Mars" was using Kickstarter to raise funds for a Veronica Mars film. I thought to myself get Joss Whedon on the phone an make him do it for "Firefly" ha, seems like a few people have had the same idea. So Whedon has spoke out about the project, I knew that Joss wouldn't drop everything to go back to "Firefly" but was hoping we would get it a bit sooner than he mentioned. Plus, let's be honest if he was to do a Kickstarter Campaign he would need to make himself a lottt of money, because if he done it on a smaller budget then the film would more than likely flop again like "Serenity" unfortunately.

"My fourth feeling when I read about [the Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign] was a kind of dread. Because I realized the only thing that would be on everybody’s mind right now. I’ve said repeatedly that I would love to make another movie with these guys, and that remains the case. It also remains the case that I’m booked up by Marvel for the next three years, and that I haven’t even been able to get Dr. Horrible 2 off the ground because of that. So I don’t even entertain the notion of entertaining the notion of doing this, and won’t. Couple years from now, when Nathan [Fillion]‘s no longer [on] Castle and I’m no longer the Tom Hagen of the Marvel Universe and making a giant movie, we might look and see where the market is then. But right now, it’s a complete non-Kickstarter for me."

"For me, [Kickstarter] doesn’t just open the floodgates. God knows, things are cheaper now than when we made even Serenity. Good effects can be done in a different manner. Nor is that universe all about spectacle either. But it is a tad more expensive — and a little all-consuming! And of course, there’s the other fear: What if it’s not that good? I can do something that’s not that good — that’s fine. But if I do that and it’s not that good, I’m going to feel really stupid."
