Two Words that Send Whedon Nation into a Collective Shudder: Eliza Dushku

Here’s a little Saturday trauma, in case you’re looking for some heart failure to get your weekend going. I think that everyone can agree that the worst part of Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse” was Eliza Dushku. Right?

Well, have I got some news for you!

Whedon and Dusku may be re-teaming again. For a feature project, even. It’s not exactly reliable information (it comes from Dushku, after all), but this is what the vapid and wooden actress had to say to Hollywood Life (via Slashfilm) “I think we’re going to work on a kickass feature together that we’ve been thinking about for a few years.”


Slashfilm has a pretty solid hunch that the film she’s referring to is Goners, a super-duper secret supernatural horror film that’s been in development for a while but has never found its legs. It’s described only as a dark fantasy horror film about a young woman’s journey.

It may or may not be Goners and Dusku may or may not be doing some wishful thinking — I’d like to think that whatever bet that Whedon lost that compelled him to cast Dushku in “Dollhouse” has been repaid. It’s either that, or Dusku has some really messed up photographs of Whedon in some nasty compromising positions.

You know what’s even more horrifying? The question that elicited the above came in the context of talking to her about possibly joining the cast of Ghostbusters 3.
