    Here's the article I was alluding to:

    I think what they're saying is very logical and articulate. It also makes a lot of sense...or at least WOULD make a lot of sense IF IT WERE REFERRING TO SOMETHING OTHER THAN "BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER".

    Yeah, that show sure is 'irrelevant' to today. I mean, think about it, those kids in the show didn't even have cell phones! What an archaic, hard-to-watch, badly aged fossil that show is! :rolleyes:

    It's insane how they praise Buffy for being timeless, then compare what they're doing to what Nolan is doing with Batman by bringing an old character to the big screen with a "vital new vision".

    No I was replying to Christopher who seemed to repeat what I already pointed out. Also it is amusing that they're rebooting a movie that no one really went to see or liked in the first place. Anderson is going to have to write something really special to make fans flock to see this film.

    Awesome. So likely to be true given how Hollywood works.

    The sad thing is, like George Romero, Joss himself probably wouldn't be able to get the movie made.

    "Buffy Summers was a great Slayer.... but that was another life!"



    Ha, I remember us doing this when he reboot was first mooted, ie comparing it to the Star Trek reboot, but it still makes me laugh

    Xander- "I like this school, its exciting!"

    The Master- "BITE EVERYTHING!!!"

    That Google thing sums it up better than I could. I'm not even a Joss W fan, and I know that to do a remake of Buffy without his involvement is just plain pointless. For one thing, it instantly alienates most of the intended audience because, again even though I'm a non-fan, I still recognize that Whedon for a TV writer has a more intense fanbase than pretty much any other TV writer around, with the exception of Roddenberry. Their reaction, I imagine, will be the same as if, say, Brannon Braga had been named producer of a Firefly reboot or something.

    While I have no familiarity with Buffy or Twilight, this did make me chuckle. :lol:

    No, wait - following current gender-altering casting trends, I think we should cast a teenage boy as Buffy. Or Biff the Vampire Slayer!




    What?

    This is a film reboot. The Kuzuis only have the rights to the characters in the original 1992 film. No Willow.

    Biff Summers

    Will O'Rosenberg (Irish-Jewish Wizard)

    Xandra Harris

    Cordon Chase (bitchy football player)

    Y'know, if they did this, at least it would show some balls (pun intended). More so than the planned movie.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the devil's advocate.

    *waves*

    I find these satements to be very amusing simply because of the following points of interest:

    1. The original Buffy film was made in 1992.
    2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered in 1997.
    3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer went off the air in 2003.
    3. The length of time between 1992 and 1997 is 5 years.
    4. The length of time between 2003 and 2010 is 7 years.

    And that's ignoring the fact the new Buffy film won't be released this year - which would make the gap eventually something like 8 or 9 years.

    Simply put, the TV series jumped the gun being a remake of the movie way earlier then this movie is jumping the gun... so can we really be so upset with timing?

    Au revoir.
