    90 minutes! Woo-hoo!

    I thought this project was dead and buried. I hope this week the negotiations go through swimmingly and we're graced with this special (with Anthony Stewart Head involved) ASAP.

    And if the ratings are splendid, perhaps we might be treated to a Ripper TV series? One can hope, at least.

    Other Whedon goodness from Comic Con...

    * From the Joss Whedon panel: Whedon just finished writing "the horror film to end all horror films -- literally" with fellow Buffy/Angel alumnus Drew Goddard. It's called Cabin in the Woods. (Goddard, you’ll recall, also wrote J.J. Abrams’ mysterious upcoming Cloverfield movie.)

    * Whedon says he's not done with Future Vampire Slayer Malaka Fray.

    * Whedon has a new webcomic called “Sugarshock” at

    * Warren Ellis (“Global Frequency,” “NewUniversal,” “Black Summer” will succeed Joss Whedon as writer on the top-selling “Astonishing X-Men” comic.

    * Some who won the “Comic-Con Dinner With Joss Whedon” auction actually got to dine with more than one celebrity. Popular romance novelist Suzanne Brockmann bid for and won two of the six seats at that table for herself and her husband.

    * Faith the Vampire Slayer won’t be the only old character reintroduced in issue six of the “Buffy: Season Eight” comic.


    * Joss said he's writing a short ballet for Summer Glau entitled The Serving Girl.

    That's awesome news on the Whedon front...thanks for passing it along! You can't go wrong with more projects involving Joss.

    You're very welcome! :)

    Apparently at Comic Con, Joss said he is getting sick and tired of not entertaining us enough, so he wants to do things, like Ripper, that can be done quickly. Lots of creepy things in the back of his brain that he needs to get out.
