Big Damn Decision looms

According to the folks at a site called Big Damn, the actors' contract options for doing a second Firefly/Serenity movie expire in September 2007, so if a decision hasn't been made soon, it's about to be made: Fish or cut bait on an entertainment franchise that has drawn a passionate fan following.

There's no questioning the passion of us browncoats - but do we have enough numbers to make Serenity 2 a potential profit-maker? Apparently much depends on the success of the new "collector's edition" of the best movie of 2005. That seems silly; if the last two years haven't shown there's a demand, then the demand's not there. Something must be happening - I keep seeing Firefly stocked up at stores that mostly stock recent popular TV shows. Not many shows on their shelves that are five years old, unless they're Friends or The Simpsons - and if Firefly is in that category sales-wise, then a sequel seems like a good idea.

It'll be interesting to see what happens next. For what it's worth, the set is #10 among DVDs on this morning. So far so good?
