Dr. Horrible Hitting The Big Screen

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog is a shining example of what Joss Whedon can do when the damn networks keep their noses out of his business. I’m talking to you Fox.

The series followed Dr. Horrible as he attempted to defeat his nemesis Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion), takeover the world and win the heart of Penny (Felicia Day). The wildly popular three-part web series garnered a huge following which has of course gotten the attention of the movie world.

MTV had a chat with Dr. Horrible himself, Neil Patrick Harris, to find out what he knows about the possibility of a movie sequel to the series.

“Apparently they’re making a Dr. Horrible sequel, a feature film I hope… I hope they cast me in it… We’ll see.”

I hope so too, but we all know that movie execs think they know best, which doesn’t always result in fans getting what they want.

“I don’t know what scale, they’re talking all options, because they made the first Dr. Horrible in five days on no budget at all…

You don’t want to make the feature film be an $80 million giant movie, because it defeats the purpose of what the first film was made to be, but then again you don’t want it to be so low brow that it’s not worth paying money to see as a movie.”

Fans of Whedon may still be grieving over the loss of Joss’ latest effort Dollhouse, but maybe one day the studios will realise that he actually knows what he’s doing. Buffy, anyone?

You don’t have a hit show for seven years and a spin-off for six by accident, you know.
