Jed Whedon promises Dr Horrible sequel "will exist"
The much-anticipated sequel to Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog will exist, assures Jed Whedon, just not right now...
Yes, yes, we've heard all this before, specifically back in 2012 when it was widely reported that the sequel to Whedon Brothers/Tancharoen creation, Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, was gearing up to a summer shoot. Since then, an ABC TV series, a Shakespeare adaptation, a humungous Marvel contract and more besides have all stood in the way of production.
Don't fear though, is the message from Jed Whedon, the sequel will happen. In a new statement given to Entertainment Weekly, Whedon had this to say:
"We know we have spoken publicly about a sequel in the near distance and our passion to create it, and I promise we have not been insincere. Horrible is still one of our favorite creations by humans who were also us. We have many songs written and the plot outlined, but needless to say, we’ve been busy. Joss has had a hectic couple of years and is in the middle of the busiest year of his life, as is Zack and as are we. Also the actors have other things they’re acting in, I think. So the future is uncertain, our passion remains. DH2 will exist, in some format or another, at some point in the future. Unfortunately, the when is still unclear".
Phew, well at least it isn't curtains for the sequel. Lacy, gently wafting curtains.
