    Dumbest idea ever.

    This makes me hate humans.

    Whoever came up with this idea should go back and watch what the Kuzuis came up with the last time they tried to do a Buffy movie.

    Without Joss honestly would be the only way Sarah Michelle Gellar would ever get involved with The Buffyverse again. Ironically enough.

    What is Gellar doing these days? Didn't some fans thing she would be a huge movie star once the show ended?:rommie:

    Looks like Boreanaz is doing Bones. Glad he has been busy.

    It does remind me of Kevin McClory's endless attempts to remake Thunderball.

    Personally, I'd rather see something about anyone but Buffy (which is never going to happen). Buffy was my least favorite of the main characters, in either show.

    She's got a new show on HBO in the works.

    What's Whedon been doing these days? Dollhouse? Ugh. Wasn't he supposed to be what JJ Abrams is now?

    It's too bad Whedon doesn't have a little more control over his universe. If this is actually getting off the ground, I expect an utter train wreck.

    I'll only see this if they bring Paul Reubans back as a vampire.

    They obviously want to jump on the post-Twilight vampire fashion. And this would be a guaranteed bomb, as Twilight fans won't like it without Edward Cullen etc, and Buffy fans won't like it cos of no Joss and none of the Scoobies...

    I'd like to see Joss Whedon's take on this. I might be interesting to see where a reboot/remake might go, but it seems a bit soon for that, and pointless while there's still an official in continuity story going on.

    This is not your big brother's Vampire Slayer........

    Buffy: I will not allow you to lecture me.
    Giles: Then why don't you stop me?

    Horrible, horrible idea. If this was being spear-headed by Joss, I'd feel completely different.

    This sounds awesome... ly shit

    If this is true it really sums up the supreme laziness in Hollywoodland. Remaking Star Trek (as in TOS) I can understand as it was 40 years ago it was on TV, and over 15 years since the last TOS movie. Whereas BTVS only started 12 years ago, ended only 6, and its its spinoff 5 years ago. And it's still going with Joss via the comics.
    And there was that recent thing of redoing BSG as a movie. Jesus, do people today have the memories of goldfish or something? Next they'll be saying "let's remake Lost!" Let's remake Heroes!"
    Fucking joke


    btw, SMG is probably preparing for her baby right now, 4 months pregnant

    That is like Bizarroverse news. What happened with the original Buffy was unprecedented. A failure of a movie is spun-off into a pop culture phenomenon of a TV show. If anything, it's usually the opposite (i.e. "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"). So if the only good thing to come out of the movie was the TV show, why would the people who made the movie think making another one completely unrelated to the show as much as the first one wasn't think doing so would be a recipe for success? The mind boggles.

    It saddens me that nobody involved with the show became movie stars. James Marsters has only done TV guest spots and Dragonball. Angel (can't spell his last name) and Alyson Hannigan are TV regulars on modestly successful TV shows.

    Even Whedon hasn't done much post-Buffy/Angel. I was really hoping when he was attached to "Wonder Woman" that it would be the first step in a great transition for him from excellent TV producing career to excellent movie director career (as "Star Trek" may be for J.J. Abrams).

    Oddly enough, the cast member with the most potential for a good movie career right now seems to be Danny "Jonathan" Strong (as a writer!), who apparently wrote a hell of a screenplay for a TV movie called "Recount" and is lining up more solid screenwriting gigs. I really expected Hannigan to blossom into a beloved movie actress. I was disappointed that after her brief time in the spotlight in the "American Pie" series, all she did was (ugh) "Date Movie".

    I can't believe Sarah Michelle Gellar hasn't been in anything really good since 1999. It looks like the only movies she was in that were half decent were "Scream 2" and "Cruel Intentions"...but they weren't exactly masterpieces and she only had a cameo in the former. It's like the cast and crew of the show have the same curse that seems to follow most Star Trek actors after their Star Trek career ends.
