Whedon on Firefly: It’s over

by on Dec.20, 2005, under General News

Entertainment Weekly is reporting (need subscription or be on AOL to read full article) that Joss Whedon has come to grips that Serenity is likely the last of Firefly. It took in only $25 million, despite heavy marketing. Update 2/21: As pointed out by a reader, Joss says EW has contextual issues.

    Don’t believe everything you read.

    From http://www.whedonesque.com:

    All right, now I have to jump in and set the record straight. EW is a fine rag, but they do take things out of context. Obviously when I said I had ‘closure’, what I meant was “I hate Serenity, I hated Firefly, I think my fans are stupid and Nathan Fillion smells like turnips.” But EW’s always got to put some weird negative spin on it. But so we’re clear once and for all: If you read a quote saying “I’d love to do more in this ‘verse with these actors in any medium” all I’m saying is that Nathan has a turnipy odor. It’s not his fault, he doesn’t eat a lot of them but everyone else in the cast noticed it and tht’s not really something I’m prepared to deal with any more. And Jewel said outright she wouldn’t do scenes with him except stuff like the SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER funeral scene which was outside in a high SPOILER wind. So if I do manage to find another incarnation for my beloved creation, it will have been totally against my will.

    I hope that clears everything up. Oh, and when I say I want to do a Spike movie, it means I have a bunion on my toe.
