Whedon speaks re: 'Goners', WGA strike. Nestled within today's abundant press coverage of the "Dollhouse" announcement - an update from Joss on the status of Goners ("nothing's happening") and his take on the looming WGA strike ("I support it"). [Complete quotes after the jump...]
Joss on Goners (to Entertainment Weekly's Hollywood Insider blog):
The latest rewrite of his supernatural thriller 'Goners' for Universal "was not incredibly well-received," he says. "Nothing's happening with it right now. It's not good news, but one door closes, and then there's a draft, and another one opens."
Joss on the possible WGA strike (to The Hollywood Reporter):
"I'll hit the ground running [on "Dollhouse"], and I'll work until I'm supposed to, then I'll stop dead in my tracks and will pick up my picket signs," he said.
Although it interferes with his work on "Dollhouse," Whedon is in favor of a strike.
"I think the issues are extremely serious, and I think the studios are extremely entrenched," he said. "No one wants a strike, but it has to happen because (the studios) would not listen. I support it and will do anything to fight for the creative rights that the people deserve."
