Joss Whedon Explains Why He Isn’t Kickstarting Firefly… Yet

firefly reunion

I did spare a thought for Joss Whedon as the Veronica Mars Kickstarter raced to completion. Turns out my gut feeling was right – he was shrivelling with fear of endless questioning, stacked fan expectations, and even pressure.

Speaking to Buzzfeed about this “real game-changer,” Whedon admitted that he was feeling joy at the prospect of new Veronica, but also:

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 [the Firefly cast], 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’s no longer 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.

Actually, that’s probably not going to quash the endless questioning at all. I’ve been to press conferences and sat on round tables and I’ll tell you this, some schmuck always asks a wave of really redundant things, sometimes right after another one just did.

Whedon has his own way of funding smaller projects: his own back pocket. It worked for Much Ado About Nothing and Dr. Horrible before it, and I’m sure it will work for Dr. Horrible 2, too.
