Joss Whedon and Morgan Spurlock are making a Comic-Con doc

It's funny how an outlet like E! reports on "geek" stuff. Always the sort of stereotypical image of the geek. Storm Troopers? Lara Croft fanatics? I mean, yeah. But actually, I'm glad the mainstream doesn't know the true, terrifying depths that geekdom can bring. Very glad.

Anyway, E! Online reports that Joss Whedon ("Dollhouse", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", SERENITY) "is developing a documentary feature about Comic-Con that will be centered on a still-to-be-cast group of convention-going superfans."

E! continues, saying that Whedon would be teaming up with documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (SUPER SIZE ME, WHERE IN THE WORLD IS OSAMA BIN LADEN?) and that "they want to follow people for about three months leading up to this year's Comic-Con... and then they want to film them there. They're looking at all types of people."

Spurlock, no stranger to Comic-Con, was down there last year interviewing "Simpsons" geeks as part of "The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special: In 3-D! On Ice!", which aired last month.
Extra Tidbit: Will Joss Whedon find a way to incorporate his own "Browncoats" in the doc?
