Some friends recently let us borrow the ‘FireFly’ TV series, on DVD. We have only watched four episodes so far, but it is great. I highly recommend it.

“The short-lived TV series “Firefly” is moving to the big screen. After taking his “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” feature film and turning it into a successful TV series, Joss Whedon is about to do the reverse with another one of his creations. Whedon has teamed with Universal Pictures to turn “Firefly,” a TV cult favorite, into a feature film.
In addition to having adapted it for the big screen, Whedon will also make his feature directorial debut with the project. Plans are to see “Firefly” go into production in first-quarter 2004.
Universal recently acquired the rights to “Firefly” from 20th Century Fox Television, where Whedon’s Mutant Enemy Inc. production company has a television deal.”
