Yeah, but the physical regimen he'll need to go through won't be anything compared to Wash's.

Unless that is, a certain franchise's eighth or ninth instalment comes calling?

Now they're just flinging names against the wall.

So just do it then. Unless you have an enormous coke habit, you have to the bread from The Avengers. Follow Lucas' example and fund the thing yourself. It's not like any of the actors are going to be demanding huge paychecks. Stop talking about it and just do it while everyone is relatively young. And get Summer Glau naked.

"When I made Serenity, I said here's one thing I'll never do again - a movie based on something that some people know about and some people don't, with tons of characters who all know each other and who you have to introduce. And then my second movie was The Avengers."
 
2013-01-29 07:38:18 AM  
Joss, please, only do this if you're going to ignore Serenity, the movie put you in a pretty tough spot to follow from, and killed half the cast (and the comic took care of Jayne as well).

But the timing is right. Castle has run its course, Fillion could easily walk away from it if he wanted to. Baldwin is in between gigs now that Chuck is done (and now that I think on it, Zach Levi would fit in well with the Firefly cast), Summer Glau is a leper right now thanks to her show killing reputation, and I don't think that the rest of the main cast have done much of anything aside from voiceover work since Serenity. (We will not mention V, that awful awful show)

I dreamed a dream of the entire female cast of Firefly, plus that one redheaded recurring character, having a bikini pool party on the planet Bisperimentatia, home to the placid waters of bikini-and-inhibition-dissolving Lake Tequila.

I think this is a Firefly plot we can all agree would be awesome.

The Firefly girls have their Ginger and Mary Anne (Morena Baccarin and Jewel Staite), but to keep up with the times, they added a butch girl and a dangerous autist.  Unsurprising, legions of nerds skipped right over the other three and fixated on the autist.

Homeland has Morena doing really well. Alan Tudyk is on Suburgatory and he was also in Dollhouse, so he's getting roles.

Summer Glau naked is the easy part. Wresting rights away from Fox now, who have said they won't sell it at any price and don't plan on making new episodes ever, is the hard part.

I don't know if Castle has "run its course" yet, but once the two leads got together I got the feeling that the show had peaked and could start to decline. It's still a very enjoyable show, but I figure they've got 2-3 more years, max.

The amount of time that has passed since Firefly is a problem in and of itself. You can't pick up right were the old series left off, because all of the actors are significantly older, and the passage of time has to be explained. They would likely have to introduce a slate of new regular characters along with whichever characters actually return (subject to Kilivian's idea of ignoring Serenity).

That said, I'd be willing to give it a shot if it happens. I gave Castle a shot because Firefly made me a Nathan Fillion fan, and it turned out to be an excellent show.

I saw Serenity before I saw the show, and I thought the movie was awesome so I got caught up. Yes, it's a shame that it got cancelled, but not as big a shame as the fact that HBO killed Deadwood just when the awesomeness was blooming. Space cowboys are awesome, yes, but [in my opinion] there has never been a more Shakespeareanly crafted show on the airwaves, ever...ever. And there's no way to have a movie wrap that up

Deadwood had a lovely sense of humor, too. Al's expression when he gets a visit from the scarf maker was hilarious.

That said, give up on Deadwood. Everyone associated with it has said it is over; the sets and all of the props have been destroyed.
 
2013-01-29 09:57:10 AM  
Much as I'd love to see it, it won't happen. Joss is too busy, Nathan's packing on the pounds, Adam's getting more grizzled (though that could work for Jayne), and Ron ain't getting any younger. The girls all still look good, though.

Yeah Deadwood was the first blow, but cancelling Rome just as it was getting into the really great bits of the Roman Imperial family history was the last straw. I cancelled cable and never looked back.

Reason one why Firefly could have trouble coming back is the production cost.

Reason two is that the actors are all off doing other projects.

Solution: would anyone be opposed to an animated series?
