Just last week, Nathan Fillion made a casual comment to Entertainment Weekly about reprising the role of Captain Malcolm Reynolds. Fillion was quoted as saying, “If I got $300 million from the California Lottery, the first thing I would do is buy the rights to Firefly, make it on my own, and distribute it on the Internet.” This passing remark whipped Browncoats into a frenzy and so the ‘Help Nathan Buy Firefly’ movement was born. Spurred by Firefly’s return to cable, the plan is to rally fans together and eventually get Fillion himself on board. (…) In response to the article Jose Molina and Jane Espenson, both writers of Firefly episodes, tweeted that their time and support would be available.
This is the official website. Quite something. Mind you, not likely to succeed or lead to good new Firefly material (which would depend on Joss Whedon being on board as well), but the thought counts, right? It helps that I’m an irrational Nathan Fillion fan. And they have nice banners! See below:
