My days of takin ya seriously are certainly comin to a middle


I've always said that Firefly had a "Shakespearean" feel to its dialogue. Now I can be sure. Here is the official website for his new upcoming independent film: Much Ado About Nothing staring some of our Firefly favorite actors...

(sorry if this has been already posted. I've been away for awhile!)

Found this with another article on YIDIO:

After the success of "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," which was produced in a similar "DIY" manner during the writer's strike a few years back, Whedon seems to have discovered a new method for filmmakers to create small-scale but hopefully profitable productions using the Internet as a primary platform. "Much Ado About Nothing," however, will hit festival circuits first after post-production is completed in the coming months.

If this is any indication of what's to come, we can expect many more of these small projects from Whedon and Bellwether, including (hopefully) a sequel to "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog."

I don't know about you guys, but this would be cool with some Firefly stories.

Hmmm, I was always under the impression that Firefly was based (somewhat loosely) on the works of Shakespeare (and Homer and the Marx Brothers...).

My favorite thing about all of it is how the site says, "A film by Joss Whedon - Based on a play." Putting things in their proper perspective, I suppose!
