Joss Whedon Talks Buffy Film Revamp

| Filed under: Film FlickersSarah Michelle Gellar


Yesterday, we mentioned that a new Buffy the Vampire Slayer flick iss in the works, but it will go on without Sarah Michelle Gellar and, more importantly, without beloved creator Joss Whedon.

As expected, fans are raising hell!

Hoping to shed some light on the project, Entertainment Weekly contacted Joss to get some much deserved answers. Unfortunately, they were disappointed. This was the entire interview:

TV Guide: What do you think about this Buffy movie they're making without you?
Joss Whedon: I hope it's cool.


Much like a text message, we can't seem to detect the tone of this. We can't tell if this has a happy "I don't give a shit" statement or a "I'm pissed as shit. Why are they effing up my life's work?!" statement.

Maybe this means things really aren't finalized and he's not going to go into it until it does. Maybe he is ready to do something else besides Buffy?


Too many maybes!!!

    Maybe Perez is a Jerk…

  4. 4

    Way to get the news out… 3 days later Perez!!!

  5. 5

    It will probably get cancelled before they start. I mean buffy without sarah, really? That's bound to suck (no pun intended).

    Re: dickbreath – how inspirational.

    he is already doing something else. the show DOLLHOUSE starring Buffy alum Eliza Dushku and Angel alum Amy Acker. Still doesn't excuse the fact that he should be as pissed as all us Buffy Fans!!!! I hope this ship sinks before it even sails……NO BUFFY WITHOUT SMG or JOSS!!!!!!!!!!

  9. 9

    Ugh. Please do not make this movie without him or SMG. It will be terrible if they go through with it. The studio really ought to respect the fans.

  10. 10

    Joss should do it.
    Without him it'll probably suck.

  11. 11

    Perez - please it was not TV guide who contacted Joss. It was Micheal Ausiello with entertainment weekly. he received this comment from Joss through email.

  12. 12

    Joss isn't one to let his stuff get ruined. If this is a legitimate project, meaning it's actually going to happen, you can bet that he will take action. Fear not Buffy fans! Without Joss there is no Buffy– just a girl who plays hero.

  13. 13

    I'm surprised Joss Whedon is taking the news of the studios practically destroying his beloved Buffy so well.
    I'm hoping he's just as upset as we fans of the franchise are.
    It's really a major let down to all the fans so looking forward to a reunion movie with the cast (of the TV series). If the morons who own the rights to Buffy don't want to do a reunion, they should just leave the series alone.

  14. 14

    It was not tvguide that asked Joss..it was Michael Ausiello from eonline.

  15. 15

    ummm…yeah he has done about a zillion things since buffy… seriously I thought you knew your shit…

  16. Nici says – reply to this


    There has already been a Buffy Movie…THE Buffy Movie…the one that started it ALL…Kristy Swanson IS Buffy the Vampire Slayer…f**k SMG BRING BACK KRISTY!!

  17. 17

    There can't be a good buffy without joss… thats all i have to say

  18. 18

    WTF?! This is the most stupid idea ever! I always knew they'd make a remake/reboot of the series one day but I thought it'd be like 20 years down the line! Not 6 years after the show ended!!! Ugh more proof Hollywood execs are retarded!

  19. 19

    Joss whedon has done other things besides Buffy. Who can forget firefly, the three firefly comics and serenity, then he did dollhouse which has been picked up by fox for a second season thanks to the awesome preorders on the DVD's. Also, the various comic books he's worked on like the amazing spiderman. He's also planning another series too. Now, the thought of another buffy movie without SMG or Whedon is completely ridiculous. I highly doubt it will even take off. The origional buffy movie was complete crap. no whedon, no btvs. if you really want to know what's going on with this then go to whedonesque.com

  20. 20

    You can't have Buffy without Sarah Michelle Geller!!! It's like having a white Fat Albert

  21. 21

    yeah but he is doing something else.. Dollhouse, it's a new show.

  22. 22

    He is doing something else, DOLLHOUSE which is an awesome show.

    Anyways, theres going to be serious hell if this movie is done…
    Without the original cast and Joss on board…im totally against it.


  23. 23

    "Maybe he is ready to do something else besides Buffy?"
    Please tell me that was a joke… he's done 3 shows, a movie and a web series since Buffy.

  24. 24

    Perez, this isn't TV Guide. It's TVGuide.com and they are NOT the same thing.

    They are no longer owned by the same people and are two separate companies with nothing to do with each other. Confusing, but true.

    If you factchecked or did research, you would know this.

  25. 25

    What the fuck? No SMG or JW? This film is doomed! I know there are many film sequels with different actors/actresses playing the same role but NO ONE, and i mean NO ONE will EVER EVER EVER (have I said ever enough?) come close to TV buffy (sarah michelle gellar) or joss whedon..Also I am just hearing that spike, willow, xander, nor giles will be in the film..UGH!!!! HUGE FAIL!!!!

  26. 26

    What's the point if there is no Willow, Spike, Xander, Anya, Cordelia, Angel and of course GILES

  27. 27

    Perez you are, as usual, about 3 steps behind. Aus is at EW now, and has been for a year.

  28. 28

    I wonder if the producers who hold the rights to do another Buffy movie are thinking in terms of making a more serious, less jokey version of the character — something like Twilight with a teen-girl vampire slayer.

    To be honest, I could actually see this maybe working, but the script and directing have to be absolutely perfect — and I'm speaking as a guy who really loved the Buffy TV series.

  29. 29

    im so excited about it!

  30. 30

    he's doing "dollhouse" at the moment.

    They were never going to have a Buffy reunion movie b/c not enough of the cast wanted to do it. That's why he put out the comic series to continue the story. But yes, any universe that Joss has created will never be as good without Joss.

  33. 33

    who owns the rights to buffy?? a studio? joss is the creator and writer i'm surprised he doesn't own it.

  34. 34

    i love joss and i love buffy, but him returning to buffy would just be beating the dead horse. he already does the comics, which are increasingly lackluster as time goes on. I think joss is clearly ready to move on.

    There is a right way and a wrong way to redo this movie. It could potentially be quite good, or quite bad. But i'll just go along for the ride i think, and see where we end up.

  35. 35

    Re: Meliasaurus – Completely agree. Huge Buffy fan, but honestly it was never the same after the near perfection that was seasons 2 & 3.

  36. 36

    well MAYBE
    he should GO BACK TO BUFFY
