possible future Firefly Kickstarter
ABV: So, what does this mean for Firefly?
JW: That's what everybody wants to know about. Uh, yeah. 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.
So Joss Whedon, the directer of the move Serenity, at least isn't adverse to the idea of a kickstarter campaign for a new move based on Firefly. However it would have to be years from now because he is currently doing some work for Marvel. :(
I think it would be a great idea, myself. Personally though I hope he would take it a step further and kickstart a new Firefly series, instead of a movie. It would certainly please a lot of people who liked this series. I was sad to see it go.
If anyone is wondering about his mention of Veronica Mars, it's because there is currently a kickstarter for a Veronica Mars movie, and it reached the $1 million funding mark faster than any other kickstarter in history. I can only imagine what kind of funding a Firefly kickstarter would pull in.
