New Buffy Movie?

There is talk of remaking the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie. From The Hollywood Reporter:
"Buffy" creator Joss Whedon isn't involved and it's not set up at a studio, but Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo Entertainment are working with original movie director Fran Rubel Kuzui and her husband, Kaz Kuzui, on what is being labeled a remake or relaunch, but not a sequel or prequel.
I'm thinking, they are going to have a real tough road ahead of them without Joss Whedon and some very big shoes to fill. What do you think of a remake of Buffy? Would you go see it? Do you think they can pull it off without Joss Whedon?

I LOVE Joss Whedon...without him..I don't know.

Same here, not sure it can be done successfully. It seems kinda like an empty proposal with Whedon, doesn't?

Too many days off...I meant: It seems kinda like an empty proposal without Whedon, doesn't?

I'm a big Buffy fan. So, this is fun news, but doubtful they could pull it off without Joss Whedon.

I saw the original Buffy movie and thought it was awful.

Of course Joss Whedon knew exactly what to do with the material. I can't image any more Buffy without Whedon involved!

Anna said...

Sadly the original movie would have been great if they would have stuck to Joss Whedon's original script. But of course they didn't, alot of Joss's great work got re-written.

Fantasy Dreamer said...

Patricia - That's how feel, too.

Anna - Case in point! That's just another reason why they should leave it alone. I'm a Buffy fan too but I don't want to see it sullied.

Maybe it'll be good, but for the life of me, I just don't see that happening. And why can't they spend money on something new? Why are they remaking old movies so much? Surely, there are new story lines out there, worth investing in.

I don't see how they could do this without Joss and not be pretty much universally panned. Horrid, horrid idea.

Fantasy Dreamer said...

Hi Lou! Yep, I agree with you. They need to leave it alone: "If ain't broke, don't fix it!"

Anna said...

The show was perfection and although I miss it they should leave it well enough alone.

:D
