Serenity: A recent post by actor Adam Baldwin at the official website has revealed some interesting production bits about some sequences scheduled to shoot today...

>>> "Any movie news?" <<<

A little birdy told me that: "The studio is robustly enthusiastic!"

Brother, we begin some really gnarly action sequences on Monday which will last for three or so weeks. I think we wrap on the 24th.

The footage is amazing!

Summer Glau is a Big Damn Movie Star!!!

Just like Nate and the rest of his crew!

Serenity always,

Serenity, hitting theaters on April 22nd, 2005, stars Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin, Adam Baldwin, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher, Summer Glau, Ron Glass and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Joss Whedon- the Oscar®- and Emmy-nominated writer/director responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel-now applies his trademark compassion and wit to a small band of galactic outcasts 500 years in the future in his feature film directorial debut, Serenity.

The film centers around Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family - squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.

When Mal takes on two new passengers-a young doctor and his unstable, telepathic sister-he gets much more than he bargained for. The pair are fugitives from the coalition dominating the universe, who will stop at nothing to reclaim the girl. The crew that was once used to skimming the outskirts of the galaxy unnoticed find themselves caught between the unstoppable military force of the Universal Alliance and the horrific, cannibalistic fury of the Reavers, savages who roam the very edge of space. Hunted by vastly different enemies, they begin to discover that the greatest danger to them may be on board Serenity herself.

Thanks to CS! for the heads up.
