An interview with James Gunn. There's more Whedon related connections with the writer and director of Slither than meets the eye. Did you know Joss once hired him to create a sitcom for Fox?

The Fox sitcom is now added to the list of Joss projects we don't know much about (and probably never will).

That list being:

The Batman movie.
The Dracula musical.
Probably some other stuff too.

How come no-one has mentioned that Slither is an obvious re-make of the B-movie classice (at least in my mind) Night of the Creeps? It really is a pretty great, bad movie.
"Night of the Creeps" - great little '80s cheeseball horror movie. I've read interviews where Gunn has mentioned "Creeps" as an inspiration, although there is a long, proud tradition of slug-based fright flicks.
All I know, is when I see that preview, I keep expecting Nathan to answer a phone and say "Capt. Reynolds. Thrill me."
I know of at least two movies that Joss wrote that were never produced.
You mean Afterlife and Suspension? Quite a bit is known about them.
