Brett Matthews to write sci-fi script for Universal. The former Mutant Enemy alum wrote the Firefly episode 'Heart of Gold' and was a co-writer with Joss on the Serenity comic book mini-series.

It's always good to see someone from the Whedonverse doing well.

Whoa, the biggest news in that article for me is that Brian Michael Bendis is finally getting Jinx made (and Charlize Theron is producing! She'd make a sweet Lauren...although I think Lauren was only in Goldfish, can't remember).

Congrats to Brett Matthews though on a deal with Universal.
Fortune and Glory: Volume 2 here we come?

Good word all 'round then. Brett Matthews writing an intriguing-sounding sci-fi flick, Jinx happening, and Joss Whedon doing Goners. I'd squeal, but I'm not girly enough, honestly.
Woo! Joss and Brett under the same Universal-y roof? Sounds good to me.

And did anyone see off to the side that they're turning Holes into a TV series? How's that gonna work? The book was great, and the movie was a lot of fun, but how are they planning on spreading that plot throughout a whole season, let alone more?

And since when was Louis Sachar planning a sequel book?

Ay yi yi. I do not know if this is good news or bad...
Universal seems to like SF these days and consider it an up and coming genre - I'm really looking forward to those movies!

Don't get your hopes up just yet--I mean, sure, get your hopes up, but don't expect anything too soon. This deal, including the Theron-involvement, was made months ago, ant there's been no real progress that I know of.

And I think Theron was going to play Jinx herself, actually...
*squeeeeeee*

how exciting! Brett is an incredibly talented writer, and he has been graciously approachable and encouraging to the Serenity fanbase. Here's to a long and prolific career!
