Joss Whedon reveals clues about his new movie script. "It is a story about a girl who goes through some unbelievable sh-t".

Funnily enough, all of which except for the part about no studio is mostly how he talked about Goners too.
Yay for mysterious future thing!
Yes, I thought of Goners too. Poor Mia. Never to see the light of day.
That's kind of like Michael Bay saying he'll make a movie with a lot of explosions.
I still have great faith in my Kickstarter campaign to fund the creation of an asteroid to aim at Michael Bay.
I'm glad Joss is finally going to write a story about a girl who goes through some unbelievable sh-t. :-)

I wonder if it could be a film adaptation of his hopefully-still-on-the-schedule Twist comic book miniseries, which is about a girl who goes through... well, you know.

(Actually, when I got my weekly comics last weekend I realized that every single one in my pull box was about exactly that theme. Buffy, Tomb Raider, Red Sonja, Xena, Shadow Glass, Mae. So clearly I'm Joss's audience.)
I also betting on a plot twist that the girl who goes through some shit eschews footwear.

I dunno, man. I think if you're going through shit, footwear is probably advisable.

Although Barefoot Through Shit has a certain je ne sais quoi as a movie title. Also a certain je ne le veux pas--du tout.
@RobynH: Aim an asteroid at Michael Bay?! No, YOU FOOL!! That will just create a MASSIVE EXPLOSION!! THAT'S WHERE HE GETS HIS POWER!! You'll destroy us ALL!!!
Honestly, I take "Armageddon" and especially "The Rock" over many, many other films. "Transformers" on the other hand was trash, but that might have been due to dubbing.

@Topic: 99% of what Whedon creates is worthwhile, so I'm open for more. Don't care much about the developmental stage, though. Tell me once stuff is finished, released and ready to be bought. (And even then I'm in no hurry at all. Took me years to watch "Firefly" and "Dollhouse" - with two additional years for season 2 - and I have yet to watch "Age of Ultron".)
Inevitably, a character he's created, who we've come to love, will suddenly die.

I still have great faith in my Kickstarter campaign to fund the creation of an asteroid to aim at Michael Bay.

Then there's the whole footwear debate...

I love you guys!
Good to see Joss abdicate his lofty position at Marvel and try to create something original, something without limits, lines not to crossed. A great amount of Joss's work has been about challenging authority, challenging conventions, but here he's had to conform, more or less.

No matter how one may enjoy these movies, all the directors are essentially caretakers, custodians of something bigger than any single film or filmmaker. The world of Marvel is inviolate, any artistic subversion creating nothing more than a few ripples.

Sure it's an honour to be handed the helm, but you don't want it to dilate out into a career, especially for a guy like Whedon, so used to having total control over his work, to following his own transgressive muse. It's no coincidence that Loki and Ultron, the antagonists in his Avengers movies, feel like Whedon envoys and torpedoes: they get the best lines, promulgate the most interesting ideas, act as his sonic anarchy, the ripple-makers.
