Joss Whedon honored at HeForShe and drops some clues about his new film!

While appearing at the HeForShe Media Summit Joss Whedon dropped some clues on his new script that he’s been working on in typical Whedon-esque fashion.

“It’s a story about a girl who goes through some unbelievable shit. And that much is all I can say. It is an original screenplay that is very different from everything I’ve ever done except for that it’s exactly the same.” – Joss Whedon

He’s hoping to have it finished within the next couple of months and was also quoted as saying “It’s the first time in my life I’m writing without a sort of studio audience rating, without a plan. I’m just writing about something I care about, so it’s a little terrifying and it’s taking a little longer. But I think it will be good!”

Whedon was honored at the Summit for his activism and belief of women’s rights. In a speech he urged men to stop and listen to women.

“It’s not something I’ve personally mastered. It’s listening. Count to five every single time before you interrupt – before you interrupt a co-worker, before you compliment someone on something in your workplace, before you reprimand your daughter, before you compliment your daughter…before you explain.

Take an extra step just to think for a moment, to think what the person you’re dealing with is going through. What I would like is to never again receive an award just for being a decent person.”
