Whedon’s “Dr. Horrible” On The Big Screen

Neil Patrick Harris tells MTV News that a sequel to Joss Whedon’s online sensation “Doctor Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog” could hit the big screen.

“Apparently they’re making a ‘Dr. Horrible’ sequel – a feature film… I don’t know of what scale. They’re talking all options, because they made the first ‘Dr. Horrible’ in five days on no budget at all – that was its intention. You don’t 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 [but] then again, you don’t want it to be so low-brow that it’s not worth paying money to see as a movie” said the award show host, sitcom star and John Barrowman poll rival.

The 2008 42-minute short film is a musical tragicomedy about the rivalry between aspiring supervillain Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) and his nemesis Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion) over their mutual love interest Penny (Felicia Day).
