Sci-fi fans will be pleased to hear that the adventures of Captain Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion - photo) and the renegade crew of Serenity may return. Talking to Moviehole, British actor Alan Tudyk - who plays pilot Wash in both Firefly and Serenity - said: "They had to put [the new special edition DVD] out because they've been selling out of the other one and so Universal's like 'So, let's do another one'. And now… there's now a chance there's going to be another movie."
But wait! - wasn't Wash killed in the movie?
Creator Joss Whedon had always promised a trilogy of movies but with Serenity garnering relatively disappointing box office receipts but still impressive for a spin-off movie from the TV series which was yanked after just 12 episodes.
But with Serenity having found as receptive a DVD audience as its predecessor Firefly, a straight-to-DVD sequel could be ideal for all 'Browncoats' (the Serenity equivalent of Trekkies).
Tudyk says that even if it was a direct-to-DVD movie, it’d still be worthwhile since since the whole DVD sequel is a big trend. “It really is”, says Tudyk. “Everybody in the Firefly crew – and that includes the ones who died in the movie – are excited about the prospect of doing another”.
