A year on from the release of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and filmmaker Joss Whedon has kept a low-profile, only making the odd appearance talking about the stresses he was under on that project and his decision to part ways with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He’s also suggested he’s going to start writing original material again and direct a new independent movie, but there’s been nothing more said on that front until this week when The Wrap managed to catch up with him at the HeForShe Media Summit in Los Angeles. Asked for just a few details about his new film, he responded:
“It is a story about a girl who goes through some unbelievable sh-t. And that much is all I can say. It is an original screenplay that is very different from everything I’ve ever done except for that it’s exactly the same. It’s the first time in my life I’m writing without a sort of studio audience rating – without a plan. I’m just writing about something I care about, so it’s a little terrifying and it’s taking a little longer. But I think it will be good!”
Whedon added that he plans to finish the script within the next few months but is still dealing with a third-act issue.
