Now that Joss Whedon has wrapped upped his work on The Cabin in the Woods, he's starting to focus on his 2nd season of Dollhouse.
We've got different chunks of news for you today. First, we chat a little bit about the new writers for the show then some character news. Later on we make note on Joss' opinion on the new Buffy The Vampire Slayer project.
Writing Staff Added To Dollhouse
For any Reaper fans that have become fans of the writers from that show, you will be happy to know that the creators / writers from Reaper, Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, have come on board the writing staff for season 2 of Dollhouse. They've signed an exclusive deal with 20th Century Fox, and 20th Century produces Dollhouse.
Now don't be confused. Yes, Joss was given a smaller budget for season 2 but they're not adding staff. These two replace the spaces vacated by Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain. Craft and Fain both moved over to the writing staff for Lie To Me.
Work On Dollhouse Is Getting Underway
The first thing we need to address are the rumors of who is or isn't showing up on Dollhouse because they may have been exaggerated.
According to Joss Whedon, despite reports saying that there was a good possibility of Summer Glau coming on board, there may have been a liberal dose of misinterpretation involved.
I've previously reported that he asked Summer if she'd consider coming on board. More recently, Joss said that he first has to serve the work needs of the cast already assembled before anything can be worked out with Summer Glau. Joss says that if something came up that fit her, he'd "... hound her. But the rumors of her becoming part of the show are greatly exaggerated." But you have to admit, the potential of her presence on the show is pretty exciting.
Cast, Where Art Thee?
As far as other cast members showing up in season 2, have you noticed a few folks are on other shows? I did, and I was curious.
