Joss Whedon and Morgan Spurlock Combine Nerd Powers for Comic-Con Documentary

Thursday, February 18 by

Joss Whedon is looking for a few big nerds. The Buffy/Dollhouse/Dr. Horrible creator is currently searching for three fanboys or fangirls for an upcoming documentary about San Diego Comic-Con and nerd culture. He and Super-Size Me director/star Morgan Spurlock want to follow their subjects around for the three months leading up to this year’s convention. Why they want three months worth of masturbating to anime footage is well beyond me.

Filming is sure to be hectic on convention day when the crew loses Whedon due to his instantaneous blending in with the crowd. He’s like a nerd chameleon. In all earnestness, this seems like a unique look at a growing counter-culture I am a little bummed though that Spurlock will not be upping the ante of his previous works by remaining a virgin and living in his parent’s basement for 30 years. (E!)
