New Buffy movie on the way?

New Buffy movie on the way?

On page 51 of today’s Herald-Sun Newspaper – in the “ExtraHit” Entertainment lift-out – is a news item suggesting a script for a new “Buffy” movie is doing the rounds.

This is what it says :

The monster success of girly vampire pic Twilight at the US Box office last weekend could kick open the door for a big-screen return of Joss Whedon’s much-loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 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 Buffy concept was first unveiled as a movie in 1992 with long-forgotten Kristy Swanson in the title role.

Hmmm, as much as I want to believe it, I just don’t. Joss had a hard enough time convincing all the applicable parties that some spin-off ‘telemovies’ were worth doing – and even then, nobody seemed to be on the same page. One minute they were on, the next minute they were off – and that’s how the proposed small-screen telefilms (one was rumoured to fix on Spike, from memory) have stayed. They’ll never happen – even Joss will tell you that.
That doesn’t mean I don’t think a ‘film’ a great idea, in fact, I think it’s a terrific idea, and it could make money – especially, as the article states, if they strike now whilst the “Twilight” iron is hot.

Whedon probably wouldn’t have any trouble convincing stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz – it wouldn’t be a “Buffy” movie without an Angel appearance after all! – back to fold, considering they’ve always said they wouldn’t care so much to do any more small-screen Buffy/Angel but would jump at the chance to bring the characters to theaters.
Fingers crossed, but not too tight – you’ll probably be closing off the circulation for nothing.
Lets wait for a response from Joss – keep your eyes peeled for one at Whedonesque.com, the best dang Whedon-verse site out there.
