Joss Whedon's Serenity Pushed to September 2005

Joss Whedon, the man behind "Buffy" and "Angel," tells WHEDONesque that the release date for his latest film project, "Serenity," has been pushed back to September 30, 2005.

Whedon says the decision gives "Serenity" a better shot at audiences because the film's original April 2005 slot is "crowded with a lot of titles aimed at a similar demographic." He stresses that the push is not bad news: "This isn't about a lack of confidence in the film -- in fact, they [the studio] told me this before they even saw it. And now they have seen it, and unless they're way better liars than I'm used to, they dug it."

"Serenity" is a big-screen adaptation/continuation of Whedon's short-lived sci-fi TV show "Firefly." -- Mac Slocum
