James Marsters as SpikeThe other day I mentioned that the idea of a Spike movie is alive and well, but anything more than vague information has been hard to find. Now, though, JossWhedon himself has given an update to TV Guide on the status of the project, so we know exactly where it stands.

The good news is that the creative side is moving forward:  all of the "art guys" are being pulled together and are actively discussing ideas for the film. The bad news, though, is that nothing on the business side has been addressed - no contact with the WB, nothing more than casual conversations with Amy Acker, James Marsters, and Alyson Hannigan. Basically, it's just an idea that's percolating, like about a billion others in the movie world. As Whedon himself put it, "At this point it's still me and my buddies going, 'Wouldn't it be cool?'" So, yeah. Right now, it's a pipe dream for all of us.
