Serenity takes off soon.

Joss Whedon told SCI FI Wire that he will begin production in three weeks, with all of the original cast members in place.
“The show plays on a very small, personal level. And while I want that to work in the movie, the movie has an epic quality and a resolve that you simply can’t afford in a TV show. Because if you have the epic quality, you run out of money, and if you have the resolve, you run out of ideas. … The movie is really like, if you took a giant hit of the show all at once. It’s very big. Perhaps I should use different imagery.”
