Whedon, Spurlock teaming for Comic-Con documentary
Marc Malkin of E! Online reports that Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) are teaming up to make a documentary about Comic-Con International in San Diego. It “will be centered on a still-to-be-cast group of convention-going superfans,” he says, and will follow them for a few months before the con, in addition to seeing what they’re up to in San Diego.
Both Whedon and Spurlock are no strangers to Comic-Con. Whedon, of course, has attended numerous times to promote things like Dollhouse and Buffy, while Spurlock was there last year recruiting fans for The Simpsons 20th anniversary documentary he did. And both have a relationship with Dark Horse, as Spurlock is working on Supersized: Strange Tales From a Fast Food Culture with the publisher.
