I'd like to think its a bit more than a possibility. Take these snippets from the article:

When Alan Tudyk told me on the phone this morning that a sequel to “Serenity” – that’s the name of the “Firefly” movie for those who’ve been up at Guantamo Bay for the past couple of years – could be happening I just about dropped the phone (I didn’t though, because the last time I did that it landed in the loo. Fried itself. And as a consequence, I lost all my numbers.) Tudyk says the newly-released “Serenity : Special Edition“ DVD has been selling so hot, that there’s talk in doing another movie.

"They had to put [the new 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”.

Tudyk agrees that even if it was a direct-to-DVD movie, it’d still be worthwhile. Especially 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”.



I'm thinking we are going to rise again.

We've gotta respond to this folks. I suggest we inundate Universal asking for clarification. A few thousand e-mails about this should get their attention.

If we're gonna inundate Universal asking for clarification by email, letter, etc then first we have to do it politely and secondly we need to build this up post around all the firefly boards for a month or two making sure we will have thousands of Browncoats which will contact Universal.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTAH!!!!!!!!!!

OH, MY, JOSS this is exciting news. Made my day. It's 1 30 in the morning and i'm working on this Philosophy essay that's due in the morning, making good progress (ie. I should be done within an hour or so, hopefully, plus i have a HUGE break after so i can nap then) but just still annoyed at the general lateness of me staying up.

This was totally worth it. It's not much, but it's something. A more substantial something than anything we've had in a DAMN long while. Not to mention this comes just after the rumoured sept.07 deadline passed, so yay for reigniting the torch, with some extra gas for good measure.....

Oh god, i hope this works out, because yay.
When i read this, i was astounded to find tears coming to my eyes. And i'm a large-ish, semi-muscular young man, so to get teary-eyed over news about the chance of a movie happening is definitely out there.

Thank you God, and Joss. Not sure, but that "and" might have to be changed to a slash.

I'm babbling like a moonbrain.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Might I suggest we hold off "inundating" Universal with emails at this point asking for clarification. We already have it from Joss and now Alan that the CE dvd is where the hope for a sequel lies. If we're going to get that sequel it will be because the CE dvd sales as well or better than the first one. We all know that means we have to keep promoting the Special Hell out of it. Buy them if you can, if not, well, that would mean it is time for some good ol' fashioned guerilla marketing techniques.

If you write to Universal, thank them for the CE dvd. Tell them how much you like it and how you plan to promote it. Getting all demanding and asking when or if we are getting a sequel, well, I just don't think we are going to get as much mileage out of that effort.

This is good news people. Heck, it's GREAT news! Now we just need to make it a reality. If any fanbase can do it, it's us browncoats. We made history already. Let's do it again! Let's show those other fanbases what it means to be "Browncoats"! Let's get our gorram sequel!

I don't know that a mail campaign would do much at this point. I think what they would notice most is this:

First - Money. Duh. They've already noticed. If you haven't bought the movie, BUY IT. And then get all your friends to buy it. Start buying Christmas presents now. Whatever you have to do.

Second - Web Traffic. Digg, del.icio.us, the official movie site, etc. If you have a blog, blog it.

I second this entire post.

At this point, inundating them with mail might not be looked at, remember it's the little guys that open the mail and if we swamp 'em, they're likely to throw 'em away and just mention it. Sure the mention is good, but wouldn't something prolonged work better?
If you do write Universal, just tell 'em you're buying the CE, you'll buy more CE's and you'd buy anything else Serenity they make. If there's going to be an emailing or letter writing campaign, let's stagger it out, so they aren't inundated, they're thanked and encouraged long term. There are workable emailing lists to set up to do this.

Joss told us what must be done to get a sequel. He all but said out loud that sales of the CE would be the deciding factor for a sequel. So for me this means I buy the CE... a lot... good thing the holidays and some of my busiest birthday months are coming up. There's also my local libraries, my local firefighters, my local women's shelter, my local Crosslines, my local video store ( yes I plan to donate to my local video store ).

Getting buzz out about this is essential, digg it, blog it, write your friends, send out emails to long departed FF/S friends who have slipped away from the fandom. If you have a myspace account, bulletin it. Spread the word however you can.

Good old fashioned guerrilla marketing is ready at your fingertips, 11th Hour has made it possible for us to have flyers on our desktops, bookmarks in our books, ones to hand out, ones to share with our favorite coffeehouse. Put 'em in the middle of comic books at your favorite comic store.
Use the tools that we all have available to us from all the talented folks we know and love in our fandom and spread the word.

I'm so used to tempering any feelings of squeeeeey-ness with patience, that I don't even know how to react to this.

I think I might allow myself to get a little excited about this.

(Shamelessly copied from an older post on another forum)

We GET this Big **** Sequel, we need to make a whole LOTTA noise!

We need to be in the newspapers for three weeks leading up to the premier, holding shindigs, giving interviews, doing charity work in our Brown Coats, and, generally, getting the attention of the mainstream. Universal knows we'll go see it; if we can drag along a lotta curious newbies, then, our numbers will be truly impressive.

Come the day of the release, we need to buy tickets to every showing the first day, and, spend it in the theater. Remember, this is what we WANT; if we can get it, we need to show how much we appreciate it. Come to think of it, we also need to be at the box office, and, share out some of those tickets to folks standing in line waiting to see something else. We did it last time; we can do it again, this time.

If we don't take a second chance seriously, we won't GET a third. Yeah, we have a lotta numbers, but, every one of us needs to maximize his or her impact. We need to ensure that the release of our BDS makes Lucas' Star Wars Episode 1-3 prequel releases look anemic. We need to be more visible, more intelligent, more respectful and respectable, and, in all ways, do our fellow Browncoats proud.

When we get that BDS, we need to coordinate alla that. We have the network; we can turn the US into one, big, Browncoat Nation for a week and more. THEN, we will have proved to Universal that they invested in the right buncha fans.

Gorram right, we will.

Can't stop the signal!

Still holding on to the pessimistic side (you know, just in case) but found this little part in the comments on Whedonesque that made me..... take notice.


Quote:

Firstshowing.net linked to the same moviehole post, but raised some questions about whether the interview was recent, and whether Alan's comments were taken out of context or misconstrued. Clint, the interviewer from moviehole commented on their post, saying:


the interview with Alan was conducted "today" so its very recent.

And no, he wasn't taken out of context - Tudyk's pretty certain SERENITY 2 is on the books again.

Folks, while I agree with the sentiment of much that has been posted, we've still got to respond. If we do nothing, then that's what we're going to get.

If all we can muster is a low murmur, it may not be heard above the clamour of other competing interests. If however we raise a cresendo of noise - Diggs, podcasts, e-mails, Google searches, IMDB posts, Universal enquiries, etc then that's gotta act as a force multiplier on the back of CE Edition sales.

Talking about a sequel is not the same as doing a sequel. We throw our weight on the scales & it may be enough to tip those scales in our direction.

Very true, but the "how" is the question, not whether or not we will.

It is a given the browncoat community will act. That's what we've been doing all along and quite honestly that is what has carried us this far.

I'm all for a response, but it should be a response that Universal will actually hear. I am not convinced that an email, snail mail, or post card campaign will actually make a difference. Universal is a business and therefore interested in making money. They will hear us and know what we want if they see those CE dvds flying off the shelves. Money will speak a lot louder for us than any email ever could.

I know most of us can't afford to go out and buy more CE dvds and I'm not asking you to. If you can, than do so. They make great gifts! If you can't, then do what you've been doing all along; spread the word. Tell people about the CE dvd. Use guerilla marketing tactics! Go into stores and put the CE dvd in a highly visible spot. Face it out so people can see the cover if only the spines are showing on the shelves. Ask sales people about it. Educate them on the movie if they don't know about it. Hang up some of 11th Hours shiny posters wherever you are given permission to get the word out there.

It's up to us again browncoats. It's always been up to us. We've done the impossible before and we can do it again. There's a reason why we're the shiniest gorram fanbase in all the 'verse. We don't quit. Ever! When people tell us there's no hope that's when we dig in and fight the hardest. To Hell with the odds! To Hell with what the naysayers think! We know that the story Joss is telling is worth the effort. We owe it to ourselves, to Joss, to the cast, and to those out there that have not found "Serenity" yet to keep this story going.

Let's get out there and get our Big Damn Sequel!

Here's an something they would notice. A little traffic on this site:

http://www.serenitymovie.com/

Unique hits are best. Which means refer other people to the site.

Upon further reflection, I think, in my humble, understated opinion, that we will know something, implicitly, by this evening.

Joss has already had all day, yesterday, to quash the rampant news, if he was going to. If he has not done so by tonight, then, I think that we can safely assume that there's a deal in the making. Mebbe not a DONE deal, but, we can assume that Alan spoke the first-draft gospel.

Let's see what tomorrow brings.

By the way, if you see ANYTHING online that looks like news about this, please be sure to check the date. There was, coincidentally, a similar story, quickly negated by Joss, exactly a year ago, which some folks, either ignorantly or, with some ill intent, are putting forward as evidence that this is a hoax, bad dream, whatever.

Just to be sayin.'

Hold the line, browncoats!
