Joss Whedon does a musical with Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion

Joss Whedon

Joss Whedon, the man who brought you the best musical episode ever, Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s “Once More With Feeling,” is coming back with a new musical.

The musical will be in the form of an internet series of 3 episodes and is entitled “Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.”

And who is in this new project? None other than Neil Patrick Harris (Dr. Horrible), Nathan Fillion (Captain Hammer), and Felicia Day (Penny).

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to find out more about it.

Here is Joss Whedon’s message on Whedonesque.com:

So…..

The bag is catless.

During the strike I started writing a musical intended as a limited internet series, 3 episodes of approximately 10 minutes each. Writing with me was my brother Jed, his fiancee Maurissa, and my other brother Zack. To my shock and surprise, we finished it. To my greater shock and surprise, we managed (with the help of many people I’ll be praising at length soon) to drag it into preproduction (yes, just as DOLLHOUSE was given a start date two months away and all my comics were due.) And today, after a grueling week of writing everything ever while trying to be a producer, I got to start shooting. A musical.

This much I will say: It’s the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to. And I’m having the time of my life.
