Details on the telemovies, that will never happen
Sounds like Amy Acker has delivered the final nail in the coffin for those rumoured “Buffy” spin-off movies.
No way FOX is going to win fans after this.
“I think its safe to say that’s not happening anymore,” Acker told fans at the Starfury event, says SyFyPortal, “’cause if they were, they’d be getting done right now. There was supposed to be three of them –- one for Spike, a Faith one and also one for Willow. I think it’s safe to say that now because its not going to happen.”
Acker said that FOX and creator Joss Whedon didn’t see eye to eye on the telemovies. “Fox couldn’t get it together the way Joss wanted to do them.”
J.August Richards, who played Gunn on “Angel”, would have been in one of the telemovies – but his character would’ve been a villain. Yep, seems Angel’s law-abiding pal would’ve been turned.
“I think it’s okay to say this now, since its not happening, but I think J (who plays Charles Gunn) was to be evil in it.” she said. “He was to become a vampire really early on in this really big battle.”
Richards, adds “I’d probably have him come back as a vampire and then kill himself.” Added Richards. “That’s always how I wanted it to end for my character.”
So bummed right now. So bummed.
