Dear lord! :o :o

That can only be a joke- a bad one indeed. I just read the article on hollywoodreporter. Can´t see that that concept will work.

IO9 said the Whedon fans would burn LA if it happened. I thought, "Yeah, that's about right..."

What I find really annoying is this is the director of the original Kristy Swanson movie, a woman who said that she just didn't "get" his idea at the time. When it got made into a tv series then she said she finally understood the idea.

Well, I have no faith that this woman and her production team are creative enough to do a new movie right, at all.

"Buffy" creator Joss Whedon isn't involved...


... Uh. Well, I didn't hate the first Buffy film, but ... uh.

Oh great, Buffy movie, minus Joss which is about the only thing that makes that movie watchable. Excellent plan.

Wolf................really, I swear, I am not dead..........no vampires here.

Edited to add: OMG, its been so long since I posted here I totally forgot what my icon was. *giggles uncontrolably*

Relaunching "Buffy" this way will ubersuck in so many ways.

1stly - DUUUUUH the tv show was itself a reboot - geez i hate that term - of the sh*thouse movie, Buffy by ME was how JOSS wanted it. the movie was how the kazuidiots wanted it.. which is a footnote and which is hailed as brilliance? hmmm?

2nd - its too soon... like same decade the show finished.. ok just but still!

3rd - if the want to make a layer movie then do it! Joss set up that there are many many slayers to utilise now, hell just call it Slayer or similar, base it on a european or asian Slayer team, do the emsemble bit, grab one of the fleeting watchers that survived and refernce Season 8 in some way. But we - the fans - sooo don't want to see a new Buffy, with none of the crew. We just don't. Sheez, grab one of the potentials even n have them as team leader.

Finally - The tv show was great because of many factors, one of ifnot the key factor was JOSS WHEDON. It has a richness in it due to the vision of him, his people n crew and cast. If they have to do it, utilise the mythos without the specific characters and it might, just might be passable. Doubtful though.

The 92 flick compared to the show looks like a cheap wayans brother scarymovieesque send up, without the wayans humour. For Hecates sake i hope they dont kazui all over that which we love.
