A New Buffy Movie to Hit the Big Screen?

By Amy W.

We’ve discussed Buffy the Vampire Slayer on this blog many times as one of readers’ favorite paranormal TV shows — it certainly does have two of the screen’s sexiest vampires with Angel and Spike (and remember when Angel vs. Spike was the big debate years before Edward  vs. Jacob?).  The popularity of Buffy has also been credited as one of the turning points that brought about the current explosion of paranormal romance.

So when rumors started swirling online a couple weeks ago about a possible new Buffy movie without creator Joss Whedon, I’m sure many of you had the same reaction as me — WHAT?!?!?!?!

More details — from Buffy collaborator and the would-be new director Fran Rubel Kuzui — popped in posts and articles from sites like BD Horror all the way to The New York Times. There would be no existing characters like Spike or Willow, and follows the idea that there would be a new slayer for the next generation (would that mean Buffy or Faith dies?)

In the aftermath of other recent franchise revamps like Star Trek, Batman, and Terminator, what do you think about the possibility of a new Buffy — are you totally against the idea, or would you give it a chance?

    I’m against it. 100% against it. The fans have been waiting for a movie since the show ended. To write the show off, and base the movie on something that has pretty much nothing to do with the show, would make a lot of fans incredibly angry. I know I would be. We’ve waited years for the possibility of a movie with all of our favorite characters in it. We’ve wanted to see where they might end up. This new concept has nothing to do with that and it’s upsetting. Why make a movie at all if it’s not what the fans wanted? It’ll be a failure without Buffy in it.

    Nope. No chance here. Not a cold day in hell. There are just some things that should not be remade and this is one of them. Why do they have to remake all the good stuff and then kill it? Remake the crappy stuff and do it right this time instead.

    and for more of James Marsters listen to the Dresden Files on audion. Oh. My. Gods. Made a 3000 mile trip worth every second!
