Whedon to make new Buffy film?
As we all know, Hollywood likes fads, if one thing works we can expect to see loads like it. And now the hoopla around Twilight, might mean a reappearance for Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Twilight does nothing for me, however Buffy used to. Is Whedon really into the idea of a film?
Twilight fans, and that's all I call them (Richard has another name we shall not mention) are more than a little excited for the film version of the books. And despite the fact that vampire films are nothing new, Joss Whedon might be inspired to bring back something old-ish. Just a rumour at this stage but could he be trying to make a Buffy the Vampire Slayer film? The Herald Sun newspaper through Moviehole.net has this to say.
Rumours are circulating in Hollywood that Whedon has a feature-film script based on his hit TV series ready to roll as soon as a studio is prepared to commit.
The first Buffy film was pre Sarah Michelle Gellar, and starred Kristy Swanson. I wasn't a huge fan of that film, but I was a bit partial to the TV show created by Whedon. I guess it's a logical rumour to come out, on the back of Twilight causing such excitement. And if anyone could bring Buffy back it's Whedon.
The TV show did have a pretty decent ending though, so I'm not sure I'd want that spoiled. A film catching up with them a few years later might be quite good though. Man, it's only a rumour and I'm torn. Any Buffy fans out there? Would you want a film version with Gellar and David Boreanaz?
