Joss Whedon says he still hasn't given up on a Firefly revival

It's been nearly a decade since the beloved, short-lived Fox sci-fi western Firefly graced the airwaves, but creator Joss Whedon says he's still game to return to the universe that made him (more of) a cult icon.

Though he's moved on to much bigger projects (you may have heard of his latest film, The Avengers?), Whedon said in a SXSW panel over the weekend that Firefly still holds a big place in his heart, and if given the chance, he'd make another movie—or a few more seasons—in a heartbeat.

"I keep thinking they're going to call me, crunch the numbers and say 'Hey, we can make money from this!'—but they don't," he was quoted as saying by Indiewire. "I would never rule it out, I love those people. But I can't just wait by the phone."

Though almost all of the cast and crew have moved on to bigger and better things since the final chapter in the Firefly saga, the 2005 film Serenity, it's nice to know that Whedon still thinks about the continuing adventures of Captain Mal Reynolds and the gang.

What do you think? Would you like to see a 10-year Firefly reunion?
