Something that has been in the works for me, for almost 5 years. I think its finally ready to see the light of day. I'm going to polish it off one more time, before I post the script in chunks to drag it out. This is the first teaser image and description of my script. It is written in traditional screenplay format. The film takes place after Serenity and will revolve around an entirely new cast of characters, which the exception of Zoe, who will be the only remaining orignal character, though, their will be some honorary mentions. ;)

This is a new and darker take on the already established universe. I honestly, don't feel comfortable writing for already well loved and established characters. But I still feel there is plenty of room to tell stories in Joss's verse. So this is my take. And yes, obviously, the lead characters first name is an homage to the actor who played the orignal lead.

Thoughts welcome. Thanks in advance.

Wishy tiptoes in....

Hmmm. So this is a post about a post your gonna make, but you don't say when?? And you done went and killed off Inara AND Mal?? Is there any romancin' to be had? Or is it purely manly in nature?

Where's the titalation, the hook, or at very least a countdown???

Yeah, Whozit. I said titilation, try not ta faint

Well, the storyline sounds logical enough *wishy strokes her chin thoughtfully.
We'll see if your five years were well spent, won't we???

Feel pressured much? Good, you should, if it's Firefly it oughta be awesome!!
Good Luck!!

They posted that teaser pic in the Blue Sun Room too, I'm guessing the script is incoming there.

I'd say the premise has potential, just be careful you don't go too grimdark. An assassin in training and the setting you described might possibly start to lean towards a brooding immoral sociopath against an even darker world story, and that's a trend that ran itself out in the nineties.

On the other hand, I've read some brilliant works featuring hero-as-an-assassin-and-setting-turned-on-its-head fanfic that stayed true to the spirit of that verse and the character, so I'd probably give this a try.

Freedom is Important because People are Important


The big red V is evocative of V for Vendetta.



"In every war, the state enacts a tax of freedom upon the citizenry. The unspoken promise is that the tax shall be revoked at war's end. Endless war holds no such promise. Hence, Eternal War is Eternal Slavery." --Admiral Robert J. Henner

The ex assassin is training him to learn how to be a better hand to hand combatant. He picked up his gun training from Zoe. The assassin character is a surrogate father figure. Where as Zoe will be the mother figure.

I would also like to say the script runs at about 2 hours even. The first hour being training and set up of a crew and takes place almost entirely on one planet. The second hour we finally reach space and the fight against the central villains takes place.

The reason for this is one thing in both "Firefly" and "Serenity" while space travel is treated in a more realistic fashion, it is treated as though ships were cars and planets are cities. I wanted to emphasis that their are some people who live on planets so large and live a normal life that they never actually ever leave their planet or see space travel and that its a life people to tend to choose to live. And its something our lead defiantly wants to do, as he has been on the same planet all his life.

So when they take to the air, its treated as a very big moment.
