“Firefly” fans, you’re not alone in wanting to see Serenity take flight on the silver screen one more time.
Sean Maher, who played Simon Tam on the short-lived series and spinoff film “Serenity,” is one of the many who wants to see a sequel movie happen — and frankly, he’s not sure why it hasn’t happened already.
“I wish I could wrap my head around it a little more,” Maher told Hero Complex in a recent interview. “When I see [Joss Whedon], I’m like, ’I don’t get it. Aren’t you like king of the world right now? Can’t you do anything? And I know we can’t do another show. I get that. A television show would be very tricky with all of our availability, and I don’t think that’s in the realm of possibility. But what about another movie? You just shot ’Much Ado About Nothing’ in 12 days. You’re kind of amazing at that. You made that happen.'”
“So when people ask me if there’s another one, I say, ’You know, I don’t think so, but I don’t know, and I kind of don’t understand why,'” he added.
Whedon’s schedule is pretty packed for the foreseeable future thanks to his Marvel Studios commitments. (No one here on Splash Page is going to complain about him being busy with the “Avengers” sequel and “S.H.I.E.L.D.” TV series — not if they value their lives!) But we’d be lying if we didn’t say we share Maher’s sentiment. If he wasn’t already before, Whedon is most certainly king of the world right now; isn’t now the time for him to get another live-action “Firefly” project up and running?
