Re: Is Joss Whedon's 'Ripper' still being made?

A few months ago, it was said on here that the BBC and Joss Whedon were in negotiations to produce a made-for-TV Rupert Giles movie (presumably after the success of the BBC's Dr Who and Torchwood which made sci fi 'cool' again)
Is this still happening? I haven't heard anything about it since. I know Whedon is working on Dollhouse at the moment, but hopefully it will be successful, and he can gain some clout to make other projects he wants to do (including Ripper).
It's been too long since we've had a Joss Whedon show on TV. I've missed him terribly.
"Ripper" has been in talks since Anthony Stewart Head left "Buffy" during it's sixth season. Everyone seems to want it, but it never moves forward. I consider it vaperware, and it'll never make it to television.
