"Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Firefly" and "Dollhouse" fans rejoiced after Nathan Fillion tweeted a link to a site saying principal photography has wrapped on the previously unannounced project, which set the Internet abuzz with speculation.

Joss Whedon has wrapped his next project. Only thing is, no one seems to know much about it.

Fans of Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly and Dollhouse were rejoicing late Sunday night after frequent Whedon collaborators Nathan FillionSean Maher and costume designer Shawna Trpcic tweeted a link to MuchAdoTheMovie.com.

The site features a single photo of a man in what appears to be a lake wearing scuba gear and holding a martini glass.

The site reads, "Bellwether Pictures is proud to announce the completion of principal photography" and says the project is "a film by Joss Whedon based on a play."

It also lists a slew of actors who have worked with Whedon in the past, including Fillion, Amy Acker, Fran Krantz, Tom Lenk and Sean Maher.

The site doesn't offer any further details, but the news did spur speculation around the Internet about what the project might be and how Whedon found time to finish it while also working on the upcoming Avengers movie.

Some speculated that it might be his follow-up to the web series Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. The obvious question, of course, is whether it is in fact some sort of adaptation of the William Shakespeare play.

Meanwhile, Trpcic answered some questions about the project on Sunday night but gave only vague answers.

In response to the question "full-length film, short or web series?" she wrote: "Film ish not sure in what format he will release it."
