How Summer Glau and Sean Maher learned about Serenity movie from Joss Whedon's mouth

Sean Maher as Simon and Summer Glau as River in Serenity

The (almost) entire cast of Joss Whedon‘s sci-fi western is reuniting at Comic-Con International San Diego next week for Firefly‘s tenth anniversary (see news) and of course fans are eager to know if there will be a continuation in one form or another.
Sean Maher was interviewed at this year Oz Comic Con (Australia) and asked exactly that point-blank; unfortunately, Sean Maher has no idea if a reboot of Firefly is already underway. But then he starts yammering on how he didn’t know about Serenity til Joss was writing the script and mentions how Joss Whedon told him and Summer Glau that a film based on Firefly was in the making :
Sean Maher: I have nothing to tell you but I would be lying if I wasn’t thinking that myself.  Everyone always asks are you making another one?  And I’m like “I don’t know” because I really don’t know, but I don’t underestimate the power of Joss and now he has 10,000 times more power than he has ever had and it just seems like opportunities would be at his fingertips.  I just saw him last week for ADR (addition dialogue recording) for Much Ado About Nothing and he didn’t mention anything but when Serenity was being made, I wasn’t privy to all the early development discussions.  I was having dinner at his house, Summer [Glau] and I came over and Joss was cooking us dinner and I remember he was makin’ a Chilean seabass and he said “oh by the way I’m heading to cape cod to write the movie (Serenity)” and I was like “I’m sorry what?!?”   And I still kind of didn’t believe him until the table read and we sat down and read the Serenity script and here we were with all of these people that I loved so much and these characters that I love so much and to just hear the words spoken again, that was when it really sunk in, so if there is something going on and I’m not being kept in the loop about it, I wouldn’t be surprised. He never ceases to surprise me.
Based on that anecdote, what if Joss Whedon has some ideas for a Firefly continuation and is developing them in secret?
