Joss Whedon’s new project: Goners

14 Nov

Why did I have to randomly encounter this in a comment on a blog? It should be news.

Joss Whedon quotes about a new project:

“It takes place now so I don’t have to build a universe, but it’s not a movie without fantasy. Everything I do is fantasy. I love fantasy.”
“It’s the story of a young woman’s journey that involves a great deal of horror and some heroics… It’s certainly darker than Serenity and there are a lot of left turns along the way. It is something I had in mind for a while, and it just poured out of me when I finished Serenity.”
“It ventures more into the horrific than I normally tend to. I love horror movies, but I looked back on Buffy and I was like ‘Oh, we forgot to make it scary.’ It was occasionally scary, but I got so wrapped up in the emotions and people and things that I missed the horror aspect. Goners comes back to that a little bit.”
“It is a story in the mode of finding strength. ”
“What I will say is that it ventures more into the horrific than I normally tend to.”
“It’s a completely new work that does take place in the modern world. Needless to say, slightly left of center. It’s a different adventure, and it’s kind of a horror film. It’s dark. It’s not nihilistic, but there’s a very ugly side to humanity going on in it. It takes place in the modern world, it’s just a part of the modern world most people don’t get to see.”
“It is a fantasy thriller, it is pretty dark and it’s all me. So people will pretty much know what that means if they look at my body of work. But it’s a new universe set in the present day with a new concept for me and a new bunch of characters.”
Goners is a movie with a lot of beautiful inspirational human stuff but it’s also a horror movie. Ultimately it’s about a darker place in all of us.”
