HV20 (~$1000) + 35mm adapter (~1000) + matte box, follow focus, rails, etc. (~500) + lights + dolly + mics == ~$3000

That would be an awesome setup. The HV20 looks amazing with a 35mm adapter. With a follow focus… 😀 that would be a dream.
The Gl2 is a great camera with more manual controls than the HV20. I haven’t used the HV20, but the GL2 is a great camera with pretty good picture quality, a nice 20x zoom lens, manual aperture, shutter speed, focus, white balance, audio controls, and a few other features.
The HV20, (i think) is limited to manual shutter speed, and no manual control over the aperture or audio.
