whedonthumb.jpgJoss Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Serenity mastermind who many Potter fans have said they'd love to see direct a Potter film) - recently took part in a chat with Empire Online in which he addresses the question (transcript on the Australian Serenity site):

Iaamond: Joss, what can a Browncoat do to get you directing a Harry Potter movie?
Joss: ihaamond, awesome question, as I was just thinking about this last night...They would have to wait until all the books come out, as I refuse to see any Potter film till I've read them all, because she writes better movies tha[n] anybody shoots. When she's done, I'll go back and watch them and wait for the call to direct number seven.
Ohhh, we'll wait too. Impatiently.
Thank you Jodi!

Oh, wow- I second that notion of having Joss Whedon direct number seven. Wow, what a treat for Harry Potter fans, the HP series and for film in general. The man has got it all- vision, talent, genius. I’d flip to see a Whedon treatment of anything by Rowling, especially book 7. Wow, that’d be freaking legacy right there.

JK Rowling, if you’re out there: for a quick crash course in Whedon: check out his work, pronto. Here are a few quick picks among many brilliant episodes: (I left out a ton of great ones but you’ll still get the idea from seeing any of these! Joss would handle HP like no one else!!!! A Whedon production/script with the full resonance, action, interest, arcs, themes of a Rowling text. It would be awesome…

Buffy: Innocence, Becoming I & II, Anne, The Prom, The Wish, Bad Girls, Consequences, Earshot, Graduation, The Freshman, Hush, Restless, Dracula, The Body, Into the Woods, The Gift, Once Again With Feeling, Storyteller, Chosen

Angel: Are You Now Or Have You Ever Been, Five By Five, Sanctuary, Salvation, Orpheus

Firefly: Our Mrs Reynolds, Shindig, Ariel, War
