Fresh on the heels of the encouraging news of a possible “Firefly” reunion, another Joss Whedon cult project is making headlines. It seems that the creators of “Dr. Horrible’s Song-Along Blog” are finally looking to make a sequel to the 2008 cult internet hit.
According to the web musical’s co-writer Jed Whedon, much like a “Firefly” reunion, the future of this project is just a matter of coordinating schedules.
In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, Whedon had this to say:
“We know we have spoken publicly about a sequel in the near distance and our passion to create it, and I promise we have not been insincere. Horrible is still one of our favorite creations by humans who were also us. We have many songs written and the plot outlined, but needless to say, we’ve been busy. Joss has had a hectic couple of years and is in the middle of the busiest year of his life, as is Zack and as are we. Also the actors have other things they’re acting in, I think. So the future is uncertain, our passion remains. DH2 will exist, in some format or another, at some point in the future. Unfortunately, the when is still unclear.”
“Dr. Horrible” was a surprise success, reaching over 50 million views and creating a devoted fan base. The project was co-created by Joss, Jed, and Zack Whedon, along with Jed’s wife Maurissa Tancharoen, and the scheduling difficulties of a sequel are really no joke. Jed and Maurissa are currently the showrunners of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, Zack is working on the upcoming TV drama “The Red Hood”, and as you may have heard, Joss is directing Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. So, hopefully the stars align and everyone involved has off for a month at the same time. I won’t hold my breath, but I will hold out hope!
