Fans of the 90s Emmy Award nominated TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, will be pleased to hear the once hit TV series created by Joss Whedon is heading to big-screen in the future. The production is marked as a reboot from the original film of the same name, grossing $16,624,456 against a $7 million dollar production budget in 1992.
Sarah Michelle Gellar replied to a question asked by E! Online, if there is a future for “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and the hopes that she will reprise her role:
“Joss and I always talk about [a movie]. But the thing with Buffy is that Buffy was a movie, and it ultimately didn’t work as a film. And I mean, we had such miles to overcome when we were trying to do a TV show based on a movie,” she says. “And one of the reasons is that the story works better over time. If there was ever the right story, we would do it. At this point, the stake would be my walker and I would be hobbling in.”
Luckily the Warner Bros “Buffy” reboot never came to pass in 2010 which excluded Gellar or Whedon. Joss Whedon is currently busy working on Marvel’s much-anticipated “Avengers: Age of Ultron”. He has always been excited about the series and its future, however he seems quite attached saying
“I always hoped that Buffy would live on even after my death. But, you know, AFTER. I don’t love the idea of my creation in other hands,”
“But I’m also well aware that many more hands than mine went into making that show what it was. And there is no legal grounds for doing anything other than sighing audibly.”
No more details are available however GS will keep you posted.
