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

Firefly had a lower budget than Angel? Crazy.
Buffy and Angel probably did more location shooting than Firefly. After all, on a weekly basis they have some outdoors fighting vampires. Not to mention monsters/demons of the week can jack the budget up for an episode.

Firefly was mostly restricted to studio filming. While there was location shoots, I think they probably had less in their 15 episodes than any given 15 episode block of Buffy or Angel. Plus, there were no monsters/demons of the week on Firefly. You had space exteriors in CGI to do, but that is comparitvely cheaper.

For similar reasons, BSG was a much cheaper show than Caprica.

Re: Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

Leave it to fans to get 99% of irony or sarcasm in their life but when it concerns their passion they will believe anything that comes out of a mouth no matter how insane it is

I'm just looking forward to see the panel on Youtube once someone has recovered enough from Comic Con to post it and otherwise wait for the Reunion Special to air in November.

Re: Joss Whedon Announces Firefly Reboot?

This Bleeding Cool "reporter" fails on one big count in particular - 20th Century Fox Television still owns the television rights to the Firefly name and characters. Joss wouldn't be able to do a "reboot" on the Science Channel, or any other channel, without first acquiring those rights, and it seems unlikely 20th would sell.

Also..."planned Firefly reunion movie"?
The reunion documentary has been under discussion here.

[...] Dark Horse will be doing post "Serenity" comics showing what happened to the crew after the film ended.
It's about damn time. This is exactly what I've wanted since Dark Horse first started publishing Serenity comics. That said, the prequel comics have been a disappointment, so I hope these post-movie comics step up their game.
