The answer, infuriatingly, is maybe.
In the light of the recent Veronica Mars film kickstarter (which reached its initial funding within 24 hours of it starting) people are bound to have questions about other shows cancelled before their time. Of course, Firefly is going to be on a lot of sci-fi fans minds.
Joss Whedon was interviewed by Buzzfeed and it quite sensibly has decided against it for now.
From the interview:
ABV: So, what does this mean for Firefly?
JW: That’s what everybody wants to know about. Uh, yeah. My fourth feeling when I read about [the Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign] was 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 these guys, 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 [Fillion]’s no longer [on] 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.
Rather interesting and it seems hes not so sure kickstarter itself will necessarily be the answer for the future. Read the whole thing :here
