Hannigan too scared to do Buffy film

Thinks she’ll tarnish it in some way


Former “Buffy” star Alyson Hannigan says not to take much stock into rumours that there will one day be a series of telemovies based on the Slayer’s pals.

Though rumours suggested Hannigan might even reprise her role as Willow for one of the telemovies (or ‘direct to DVD’ films, as most recently rumoured), Hannigan doesn’t sound optimistic.

“I think I would just be too scared to sort of go back and possibly tarnish it in any way”, she tells Sci Fi Wire. Joss [Whedon] is too busy [to do a Willow movie]. He’s not going to write it. He’s not going to direct it, you know? I’m sure he would get great people, but there’s nothing like the Joss touch. I think by all means they should absolutely do the Spike movie. I think that’s the logical next step, but … I don’t think Willow is the next step.”

The latest is that the WB are keen for some kind of “Buffy” spin-off movie, particularly the often-mentioned “Spike” film, but Joss Whedon’s too booked-up to do it at the moment.
