Buffy the Vampire Slayer is coming to the big screen, after years of fans hoping Joss Whedon’s incarnation of the Buffy-verse might have its new movie, Warner Bros. has just offically announced they’re doing a “reboot” version of Buffy, without any apparent involvement by the original creative team for the movie or TV show, including the man considered the end-all be-all Buffy mastermind, Whedon.
There is an active fan base eagerly awaiting this character’s return to the big screen. Details of the film are being kept under wraps, but I can say while this is not your high-school Buffy, she’ll be just as witty, tough, and sexy as we all remember her to be.
– Charles Roven, producer fo the new Buffy movie from Warners and Atlas Entertainmen
According to Warner Bros., Roven, Steve Alexander, Doug Davison and Roy Lee will produce the new Buffy feature film, and Whit Anderson will write the script.
Who is Whit Anderson? Apparently a huge Buffy fan who pitched Roven the idea, and the deal was made.
No word yet on whether any original castmembers will take part in the new Buffy film in any form, but Davison and Lee worked with Sarah Michelle Gellar on The Grudge.
