I wonder how much money changed hands? I expect they want a cut of the IP they killed a decade ago in their infinite wisdom.

Fuck you, Fox. Forever.

Given that Joss Whedon is now a mega director of the highest grossing movie out there I suspect Fox wants to keep from rocking that particular boat and since Whedon is a big supporter of his fans this was probably just a move to stay on his good side. I seriously doubt any money changed hands here seeing as this project doesn't have any to give. I wouldn't rule out Fox shaking them down in the highly unlikely event that this game turns out a winner though.
Except Disney owns Whedon, not Fox.

You do know the day of being a contract player in Hollywood is dead, right? That's why we have so many unions and guilds now. No studio in Hollywood owns anyone. Whedon is free to work with or not work with anyone he wants.
