You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


I don't know if this has been speculated before, but it's something that's sort of been bouncing around my head since last night.
I read the visual companion to the movie, and all the actors contribute little things to it. Here's the thing; I read a thread called "The Big Damn Inara Theoy" and a few people mention that Morena knows Inara's history (or at least acts like she does) but always refuses to talk about it, just like Joss refuses to talk about anything. I understand not wanting to tell the story before you get a chance to tell the story, and I appreciate that (even though it frustrates me.)
Anyway, I went on a tangent. The point is, in Morena's little quote in the Visual Companion she says "Something happened to [Inara] that I can't reveal".
As I said, I understand not telling the story before it's ready to be told. So her being so close-mouthed... Just seems to me like maybe we get her story next. Any thoughts?

Visual Companion is excellent, by the way. Anyone who doesn't have it should get one.

I don't think it would "center" on her, but I agree that there is much more to be told about Inara's story. I just recently watched Out of Gas with director commentary and Tim Minear was saying how he couldn't talk about some "hints" in that episode about Inara's backstory because it will come out later. Well, it didn't come out in the BDM, so hopefully later means in a sequel to the BDM or mini-series or series. (Clearly, we'll take it however we can get it!).

Good point, hadn't thought of that. Also, maybe now that we've got the first of the Trilogy out of the way Joss can worry less about introductions and spread the love a bit more through all the characters.

Makes sense, though. I'd love to see a bit into Inara's secret past.

You should read the thread speculating about the injection/needle she takes out of the box during the Reavers' threat in the FF pilot. (I'm sorry: I should paste the link, but I'm too lazy. Forgive.)

Her story, and Book's too. Even though he's dead. Much, much to tell.

I agree. I think we'll see a little of both stories in the sequel. Mostly because I don't think Book is dead. Or Wash for that matter. But that was a very long drawn out thread... (STEERING COLUMN!) Anyway...

I certainly wouldn't be unhappy if the next movie centered around Wash! However; "The Search for Wash" has a little too familiar of a ring to it....

It sure would be nice to know more about Book and Inara since they are such mysteries. Having more Wash would just be good for the soul!

Cha! SO want to find out about book. why did he have to go and die?! can kinda see how wash might not be dead (im clinging to these hopes) but im pretty sure book has to be. flash backs?? anyone?!?

since inara is the only other one with groovy secrets and shes actually alive... they HAVE to reveal stuff in the next BDM (she says with full confidence there will be one) right?!

if there was another BDM when do you think theyd start filming etc?? i mean they have to make a choice soon dont they? and universal seem very firefly-friendly unlike fox (hiss) and serenity was a success so... theres gonna be another soon right???

Of course there's going to be a sequel! ;p 4 out of 5 Browncoats can't be wrong, can they? Just keep everyone buying those shiny DVDs like you need them to survive (which ain't all that far from the truth, really. :)

We might be in for a bit of a haul, here, before we hear anything at all beyond rumors, what with Joss and Co. being busy on other projects. But I figure that's a good thing, too. And hey, look how long the Veterans held before they got Serenity to myself and the rest of the Recruits. But I remember hearing that everyone signed for a 3-movie deal, so at least Universal is open to the idea.

Can't wait to see what unfolds in the next movie, too. Be nice to see what Joss has planned now that he's all the introductory stuff out of the way.

I get the feeling the sequel'd have to be a SciFi Channel TV movie. Lower budget, quicker return, less distribution costs.

I mean, we know Summer's at least not opposed to doing SFC movies, she did Mammoth! ;)

I hope, hope HOPE we get around to finding out some of Inara's secrets. I mean, the whole "it's not what you think" about the needle... DRIVING ME CRAZY!

I'm not sure we can read too much into that. I believe studios have actors sign those contracts to cover their butts in case of a big box office take.

For example, some of the new actors in X3 signed a 3-movie deal even though it's been said that X3 is the last of the X-Men movies. And I think whether or not X3 is in fact the last X-Men movie for the time being simply depends on the box office. If it does huge numbers, then of course they're probably gonna move to make a fourth film, but if it doesn't do that great, then they'll probably give it a rest for a while and see how the Wolverine and Magneto spin-offs do. And I think it's the same with Serenity. If it was a big hit, Universal would've definately wanted to do a sequel. Hence the 3-movie deals the actors signed. But it doesn't guarantee that more movies will be made and I don't believe it to be a sign that Universal is open to making more movies since it all comes down to money rather than doing it for the sake of doing it. As it stands now, whether or not we get a BDS depends on how much Universal pulls in from Serenity DVD sales.

yeah, SadLittleKing has it right about the actors signing for another movie. It's more to make sure the actors come back for a sequel than it is for tying Universal to do anything. (Wouldn't be suprised if this sort of thing happens with alot of movies actually, even if they look like one-offs.)

Still, I think we're a pretty obvious market, here. Might have more to do with finding the right format for the projected profits. (ie, more cost-effective as a made-for-tv movie, straight-to-DVD, movie release?)
