Our boy Fillion is starting to break through.
People want to work with him... Seems to me that the right people are watching Castle and appreciating his work. If this keeps up, Serenity becomes bankable again and if Joss still cares, he has enough ammunition to take to Universal for a sequel, or vice versa, Universal have enough ammunition for at the very least, a discussion to come up about a sequel.
The DVD sales were never the issue...they were very strong...but what was missing from the first movie was bankability.. Unfortunately, idiots like you and me are more likely to see a film if it has a actor that we've heard of, like and respect.
Serenity, in 2005, had a cast of what I like to call `up and down B-Graders'..
When I say up and down...I mean some are on the way up to A, while others are on the way down from A or would never have been there in the first place.
Kudos to Joss because there have been many B-grade acted movies...but never have I seen a B-grade cast so wildly talented as Serenity.
And now you have a cast that not only impressed and had rave reviews...but have gone on and improved their names and bankability.
-Fillion becoming main-stream with spots in Lost, Desperate Housewives and now Castle are immense plusses.. Immense. The right people really, really like this guy.
-Summer was at her best in Terminator...and worked in a big sci-fi fanbase that further proved her ability to succeed in that industry with that kind of fanbase.
-Tudyk is a star...I've never met someone who has a bad word to say about him.
- The others continued on with stellar careers and earned new fans..
I'd still say this is 80% me getting too excited and too hopeful and 20% legitimate...but right now, 4 years after the best film I have ever seen was green-lighted.. The franchise is as best placed for a sequel as it will ever be.
Ive heard whispers more than just once and I know for a fact that there are people in the right places who havent dug a grave for us just yet.
I will keep you posted mate... Have a shrimp on the barbie for me!

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