Will Dr. Horrible 2 be coming to theaters? Neil Patrick Harris hopes so!

03.20.2010

Joss Whedon's DR. HORRIBLE'S SING-ALONG BLOG, released as three separate short episodes exclusively on the web in 2008, was charming and a lot of damn fun. And it seems enough people agreed, making the ultra-low budget web film a record-breaking internet sensation. Now, Whedon and his crew are apparently planning not only a sequel, but a sequel with a slightly bigger budget and made for a slightly bigger screen.

In talking to MTV, Dr. Horrible himself Neil Patrick Harris had this to say when asked about the potential sequel, "Well that's their plan. I don't know of what scale. I mean, they're talking all options. They made the first Dr. Horrible in five days on no budget at all. That was its intention. You donít want to necessarily make the feature film be an $80 million giant movie, because it defeats the purpose of what the first film was made to be. Then again, you donít want it to be so low-brow that itís not worth paying money to see as a movie."

The intention for a sequel seems to be there, but the actual game plan is somewhat shakier. A lot is contingent on getting all the principal players' schedules in synch; NPH of course has "How I Met Your Mother", Nathan Fillion's got "Castle", and Felicia Day is not only star but writer and producer of online series "The Guild".

And it actually doesn't sound concrete that a sequel would go to theaters, but perhaps to television?

Spoiler Warning for those who haven't seen the first one yet!!!

I think they should do the sequel about Dr. Horrible trying to invent a Life Ray to try to bring Penny back to life, but his efforts to steal the components needed to build the device keep getting thwarted by a wannabe Justice League who decide to pick up Captain Hammers mantel.

F TV!

This must be on the big screen! Hell with all the crap that is on today this would be a welcome if not needed change! And here's an idea, how about you show the original before the movie...that would be awesome! Joss is the man and if anyone can pull this off he can. "This is my Freeze Ray!"

As long as Bad Horse returns!

"He rides across the nation
The thoroughbred of sin
He got the application
That you just sent in

It needs evaluation
So let the games begin
A heinous crime, a show of force
A murder would be nice of course

Bad Horse
Bad Horse
Bad Horse
Heís Bad!"
