Joss Whedon has done so much more than just work in the TV and film industry. He’s created entire meticulous universes for his characters and fans to explore, and that’s no easy task. Thankfully the man is about to get his due.
Variety reports that The Producers Guild of America has selected Joss Whedon as the recipient of its Vanguard Award, which recognizes achievements in new media and technology.
Whedon is a producer, writer, director, and creator for TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” “Firefly,” and “Dollhouse” with film scripts including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Toy Story, Alien Resurrection and Titan A.E. He’s penned the comic book series Fray and created and produced Internet series “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog.”
His next feature Cabin in the Woods, which he co-wrote with Drew Goddard, is currently in post-production and is scheduled to be released sometime in 2011 by MGM. Given the studio’s recent financial problems, it’s likely the film will be changing hands soon. Look for more as it comes.
The 21st Annual PGA Awards ceremony will be held on January 24th, 2010, at the Hollywood Palladium.
