Drew Goddard on the possibility of a Spike movie. Whedonverse multimedia project features some interesting comments from Mr. Goddard in regards to a Spike telemovie.

You have to scroll down a few paragraphs.

She had a lot of behind the scenes stories. I don't remember all of them, but there was one involving David Boreanaz in which he was brought to the set early and he was left waiting. So, they got to the scene were Angel drops Nina off to her house after the whole werewolf ordeal. As it turns out, they had the keys in the ignition, so David cranked up the engine and drove off. He and Jenny drove around Pasadena for awhile. David figured if he had to wait then the crew could wait for him.

If that's a true story, that's a pretty lousy thing to do. I'm sure it wasn't fun for David to be kept waiting, but TV crews already work incredibly long hours, and they don't get the kind of money and perks that the actors receive. Why react to what was probably an honest mistake by making their lives tougher?

If, in fact, it is a true story. I know third-party hearsay isn't exactly reliable.
If Joss can't be around to put his heart and soul into a Spike movie, I think Goddard would be the perfect choice to fill in. How cool would it be for a Buffy fan to write a Spike movie! :)
Again, this is just hearsay and should be taken as such. However, in minds eye, Drew could do an awesome movie. If wishes were horses....
Well, if David Fury and now Drew Goddard both say that Joss really wants to do a Spike movie, that's proof enough for me. Maybe it'll never happen, but at least a Buffyverse movie isn't some pathetic, tragic fan-fantasy.

I'm with Airwyn on the driving around stuff. Not David's finest on-set moment, in my opinion. But all those long hours and all that sitting around might get a tad grating, I'm sure.
LMAO at Christian Kane drinking a beer during the Q&A. When I got his autograph at a shop in Santa Barbara, he was also drinking beer. Is that his way of saying he can only face the fandom drunk??? :P
Good News really!

That just cracked me up. That's funny.
I suppose what is meant by "a while". A couple of minutes then it's funny. An hour and it's no joke.
I thought it was funny too nychick, it seemed more like DB pulling a prank. He seems to have that type of personality.
Too true FF. DB has one of those personality that's off the wall, in a good way. I just recently saw some clips of him answering questions during this past comic con and I swear I was cracking up. The things that come out of his mouth... priceless.

Anyone remember that time he was on the Ryan Seacrest show, then somehow a discussion of Ryan trying to hit on David's now wife, then girlfriend, proceeded by DB going off on Ryan. Now that, that was funny.
Seems a lot of people really want a Spike movie. So far, I've heard that everyone who would be involved in a Spike movie said they want to do one. So, what's the problem again?
That is what I would like to know as well. The WB are interested, so is James Masters, all reports seem to heavily indicate Joss is interested as well, so is various ex-Mutant Enemy writers/producers as well.
So, to echo Pmacca01 what is the problem?
No catering? Heck, I'll can cook for free.....
Lmao, Jonas.

I can do the sewing if you need a costumer. I am also good at pouring coffee.

What, you mean besides Mutant Enemy being shut down and Joss being kinda busy playing around with the Cinemascope frame?
Seriously, Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard could probably pull off the Spike movie with nothing but handpuppets and a backdrop from Sesame Street. And it would STILL kick ass.

So clearly, I'm confounded by the fact that nothing has happened yet. But when/if it does, I'm there. :)
Airawyn - Jenny Mollen (who plays Nina) has also told that same tale of the car and David. She is also Drew Goddard's girlfriend, so I think we can assume it did happen. When she told the convention I attended she did say that they had made a point of getting David there very early and I think to wait just was the last straw. And I think that is kind of funny imo.

As for the Spike movie, I live in hope.
The First Weevil - Sure Mutant Enemy is closed down and Joss is busy with Movies...but from what I understand (way back in the dawn of time) when Joss and other folks started mentioning the Spike television movie was that some one ELSE but Joss would handel such a project. He would more or less hire the right people??
I certainly think that there are other Mutant Enemy writers who could do a very good job, especially if any such project was overseen by Joss. Jane Espenson, Marti Noxon, Doug Petrie, Drew Goddard, David Fury, Rebecca Rand Kirshner... basically any of the semi-regular writing staff.

Wouldn't it be great if we all offered our free services to any such project? We could do the catering, help make props, costumes or sets, wait hand and foot on Joss and the actors... I think that would be a hard offer to resist! ;)
I already shared my story about meeting Drew Goddard at the here on Whedonesque, so I'm surprised to see it highlighted here. Besides, the article cited is a convention report about the Angel Booster Bash - there's alot more to it that the Spike reference. For example, where's the Andy love? Am I the only one who thinks him doing a Paul Lynde project would be hysterical? I'm not sure I've ever seen Chris Kane without a Budweiser nearby - have you? And, how funny is Adam Baldwin? OMG! Come on folks - share your thoughts and experiences with these great folks!
Add me to the services queue. I'm a documentation specialist, graphic artist and database designer.

AND I make killer "faux Frappuccinos". What, I can't have layers?
I'll make a spike movie. With lego characters.
