[Note to self: We need a "Joss Whedon" tag for this blog.] Get ready to squeal! According to Wired who talked to Joss Whedon down at SXSW, the sequel to the internet beloved Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is underway! A "number of songs have been written" Joss says, as well as "a whole outline."
SONGS!! A WHOLE OUTLINE!!
Joss also says that production could start as soon as "this summer"—there's only one fly currently stuck in this ointment:
Whedon, who didn’t offer much detail on the plot of the new iteration of the web series, said the biggest roadblock to unleashing a Dr. Horrible sequel — besides his need to get back into songwriting mode — has been aligning everyone’s schedules for the next installment of the indie hit.
“We’re stuck, basically, at this one part in the process,” Whedon said. “All of us are looking at this summer as the time when we can go, ‘Hey, you know what? We’ve got a little free time, let’s get unstuck.’ Neil [Patrick Harris] has been like, ‘How long?’ We’re all sort of just waiting, but the waiting will stop.”
