Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

This was put up on Bleeding Cool a little while ago. The original reporter is trying to get things confirmed. This seems weird, because I haven't seen it been picked up elsewhere yet, which something of this magnitude would be.

Re: Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

Also..."planned Firefly reunion movie"? What? LOL. I have to admit this has taken me aback. I still haven't seen this picked up anywhere.

Doesn't line up with what's being reported from the comicon panel.

Re: Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

The reporter in the article does note that Whedon seemed to be very serious, and not his usual snarky sarcastic self...but it's very possible she misinterpreted it. If the latter turns out to be the case then this is only going to add to Bleeding Cool's negative reputation lol. I honestly really hesitated in posting it but it was too fascinating and confusing not to!

Yeah, if you look at the actual quotes contained in there, they don't say what is being alleged.

Re: Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

Okay I found this...didn't see any mention of a "planned movie" or "reboot" in this coverage.

This still sounds more plausible than when JMS talks about a B5 continuation.

Re: Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

I've read three or four different accounts of that Firefly panel on other entertainment sites, none of them mention a reboot of the show. But they do mention that those lines about Zac Efron and the Wash and Book conversation were jokes and not to be taken seriously.

Firefly had a lower budget than Angel? Crazy.

Re: Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

This seems like a major fail on Bleeding Cool's part lol. More panel coverage and it looks like the one bit of legit news from the panel is that Dark Horse will be doing post "Serenity" comics showing what happened to the crew after the film ended.

Re: Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

Sounds like it was just Joss being his trademark sarcastic self. Joss did break down and cry when asked by the moderator what the shows fans meant to him.

Here is an update where the reporter stands by her original report, but states that one of her colleagues disagrees with her.

Re: Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

Outside of comics, Johnston's site isn't very reliable.

He is also bordering on stalking in some of his entertainment coverage.
