Buffy Actor Won't Watch New Movie

Buffy star Anthony Head says he refuses to watch the new film adaptation of the television show because the script is no longer true to its original writer/creator, Joss Whedon.

He says, "I wouldn’t want to see it, no. The Kuzuis [Directors] didn’t do a great job on the movie the first time around. It was Joss’ script at the age of 19, but they changed a lot of it. They said, ‘Look, we know best and we know how to make this movie,’ and it became quite schlocky and high camp. It would be madness to do (the movie) without Whedon. It may be a bit like watching a car wreck."

Someone better call an ambulance then!

    I'm with Anthony. The film shouldn't be made without Whedon… Like he said, it will be like watching a trainwreck.

    Buffy who??? Go the Cullens!



  3. 3

    LOVVEEE Buffy the TV show but won't be watching the movie either !!



  4. 4

    i totally agree. if it wasnt for whedon, buffy would not exist. the show ended, and was a huge success. so why ruin that with a shitty movie? leave it alone. the first movie sucked anyway. why waste your money doing another car wreck?



  6. 6

    HA! I get the twilight craze, it was a good read. But the thought of it being better than Buffy is laughable.



  7. 7

    I totally agree, the first movie was shit



  8. 8

    I agree, No Joss. No movie. I like camp, so the original movie was ok…I loved the series however, and to do a new movie, without the cast of the series, or Joss would just be disastrous.



  9. 9

    I totally agree…Whats the point of this movie without the cast and Whedon that made it such a cult-classic to begin with. The orginal movie sucked ass. And being such a huge Buffy fan, it's a shame this one will suck too.



  10. 10

    Stupid, Stupid idea to remake Buffy without Joss Whedon. Stewart Anthony Head is right, Whedon knew what he was doing. The only reason I can remotely see them going back to make a movie, is to reunite Buffy with Angel post last episode of Buffy. And it would have to be under the exclusive control of Whedon. Otherwise, why even do it?



  11. 11

    Dont blame him, without Joss Whedon, this movie will be a-class shit



  12. 12

    Btw .. they should make a "SPIKE" show.. now THAT I would watch



  13. 13

    bring sarah michelle gellar and whedon back. i love eliza dushku so bring her back too! if the studio wants to make a hit i hope they really think about this. that's the only way i will go to theater.



  14. 14

    I agree with anthony. Joss Whedon was the genius behind Buffy. The new director is a dumbass for thinking he can pull this off. I'm definetly NOT wathching the movie.. fuck that



  15. 15

    Anthony is so correct.
    Anyone who is a real fan of BTVS will NOT watch this shit.,



  16. 16

    I couldn't agree more with Anthony. How can you make a Buffy film, based on the original film or the series, without Joss Whedon?

    It's stupid!!



  17. 17

    Completely agree with A. Head, why ruin something that is so perfect already. Despite the drama I like the old movie for what it was a campy bizarre movie with dreamy Luke Perry. But this whole rehashing thing is too much, I mean what have the Kuzuis done that has been good/or even known other than ruining what could have been an amazing movie. Buffy the show is something that I hold close to my heart and having a movie without Whedon will just kill it. I really hope these plans fall through.



  18. 18

    dear god, i hope joss whedon puts a stop to this film. i mean, doesn't he have that shit copyrighted? if this is made without him AND without the original cast, it'll be straight to dvd.
    i can't imagine any buffy fans going to the theatre to do anything but protest it.
    and yes, twilight was good but no vampire tale compares to buffy.



  19. 19

    Anthony Head is absolutely right. To make Buffy without Joss Whedon and Sarah Michelle Gellar is a worse idea even than Lautner/Pattinson/Lutz wearing shirts. In other words, it's the worst idea of the century. Buffy fans have desperately wanted a movie for ages, and with the old gang it would have been a smash hit. The Kuzui's monstrosity WON'T. BE.



  20. 20

    Before Hannah, this was the best show on TV. Joss should be 100% part of this project or I am a little scared. I also think there would be no problem with every original cast member. Sarah, Michelle, Alyson, Nicholas were all amazing. (I know Michelle wasn't orig.) Whatever…It was a great show. Same reason I love Hannah. The cast is amazing. Charisma, Emma, Amber, Eliza, James, Seth, David, Anthony were PERFECT!!! Bring back the Scooby Gang!



  21. 21

    Joss made Buffy into the cult phenom that it was (is). it is a fucking slap in the face to not include any of the cast or include joss himself. when buffy was on the air, it was always getting blown over and being unrecognized for its genius.
    this is SUCH bullshit.

    (and all you twilight losers, yeah. that writer is shit, and took her ideas and themes from buffy. fucking vulture.)



  22. 22

    OMG! They turned " BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER" into HIGH CAMP!!! WTF????



  23. 23

    This disgusts me! I never watched the show because it was a rip off of the original movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer with Christy Swanson and Luke Perry. Granted the movie was really cheesy but it's a cult classic. And now they're making a movie of the show? That's just sick; don't do it!!!!



  24. 24

    No Joss no movie!



  25. 25

    Re: Ashtoooooo!

    you're an ass. they took a screenplay and made it campy assed shit. the television show was outstanding. to take what Joss did and turn it into a mockery is disgusting.



  26. 26

    So says the guy who played the Repo Man in Repo: The Genetic Opera. That was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. He shouldn't be talking about camp.



  27. 27

    YES ANTHONY STEWART HEAD!!!! I LOVE YOU!!! It's about damn time one of the cast members stood up for Joss, and his original work!!! Not to mention the show that made them big!!!



  28. 28

    Re: Ashtoooooo! – you are a moron. the creator of the show wrote and made the buffy movie, therefore it is not a ripoff! do some research before you speak!



  29. 29

    I'm with Mr. Steward Head on this one! (By the way, loooooved his performance in Repo!) Without Joss the movie will flop



  30. 30

    I actually agree with that guy, whedon is the shiz



  31. 31

    I agree! Yay ASH!



  32. 32

    Whose Anthony Head?



  33. 33

    Re: NaughtyLaura – hope u realize that b4 the twilight shit there was Buffy.



  34. 34

    Re: Moniker – and it would have to be with SMG and David Boreanaz!!!!!



  35. 35

    Re: Emmy K – whose? before you ask WHO's A.S.H. you might wanna consider going back to elementary school.



  36. 36

    I agree with him!, no fucking way I`m gonna watch that without my trusty Whedon and SMG. The movie sucked, the show rocked. Can`t those bastards just PLEASE except that and make a Buffy movie for the SHOW?, and not just some crappy sequel?!.



  37. 37

    Oh boo woo. He can cry a fuckin' river and I still won't care. The original is a cult classic and the remake will be great. Joss Whedon got a TV show out of it didn't he. Bitches need to stop complaining.



  38. 38

    agreed. Whedon is the only one who would be able to do that movie justice.



  39. 39

    Buffy is Whedon… without Joss you may as well just be making another vampire movie not even related to it… Joss humour and Language made buffy wat it is…

    Its basically someone writing a vampire story who got to lazy to create their own background and is just stealing over 12 years of Television and Comic book history.



  40. 40

    I won't be watching d movie!! The original movie was a disaster…. Loved the tv show tho!!



  41. 41

    Re: Ashtoooooo! – You're hilarious! Joss wrote the movie, they screwed it up and he decided that he wasn't okay with that - hence, the TV-show was pitched and aired and earned the cult status that it has today. For you to say that the show is a rip-off of the movie is absolutely priceless to me. The SHOW is the original in a much truer sense than what the movie can EVER be.



  42. 42

    Hello! To whoever said they should bring back David as the love interest, isn't he getting all smoochy with the bones lady these days? Gotta tell you, their chemistry is a billion time stronger than what he had with Sarah. Bring Spike back, for God's sake, and make things truly interesting! :P Of course, in my humble opinion, going to watch a movie that Joss hasn't been involved in making is like going to see a fanfiction script that's been shot and put on the screen and, honestly, where's the real satisfaction in that? Not knocking the fanfiction, of course, but honestly, would I pay ten bucks to go and see something a fellow writer had created? No. I think not. Give it up, Fran. Seriously. You're just going to make an ass of yourself. Well, more than just announcing your plans already have, that is. My God, she says she's going to make it for "a new generation" - lady, the show is barely cold in its grave, I would think that the new generation is all about discovering where it's buried and digging it out with eager little fingers. Seriously!



  43. 43

    I would just like to say that I truly believe that Twilight is the worst collection of unimaginative horse manure that I have ever had the displeasure to waste three days of my life on and I seriously would like to sit face to face with the moron of an editor who published said collection in the shape it's in and ask him why? Why did you inflict this plight on mankind? Why?!



  44. 44

    Re: Emmy K
    He's Giles. And good for him for taking a stand. Joss Whedon is a genius, and only he could create a new Buffy movie without the original cast that would be worth a damn.



  45. 45

    IT IS NOTHING WITHOUT JOSS WHEDON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  46. 46

    all movie remakes suck….this will probably be even worse because the original writer is not involved.



  47. 47

    Wow–All this Joss love is fucking fantastic. I'm shocked. I just assumed there would be all these posts saying, "Who gives a shit" "Who the hell are these people?" and of course, "Twilight is AWESOME" but to my surprise, I can see there are some people on this board that really know their shit.

    Buffy was like a 182 hour movie. An epic story that explores the history of all it's characters in a way that gave it a sprawling feel; main characters and minor characters change places many times throughout the show. For example, after years on the show, characters that were present from the beginning had their back story told and then Joss showed their impact on the rest of that fictional world–everything was connected.

    And there has never been a better finale' in all of television history. Great payoff. Not cheesy or campy, just a great big heart.



  48. 48

    agreed. im not gonna watch it. without alyson and nick.. can't believe theyre doing it really. noone will like it becasue the fans arent just in love with the concept of buffy its more the script and the characters and how theyve developed.

    theyre fucking idiots.



  49. 49

    there's zero reason to make a new buffy movie… the series ended well.. Angel closed up most of the loose ends (still feel ripped off about how Angel ended.. but the graphic novels sufficed.. I suppose)

    I'm sure I'll watch it.. and I'm also sure it will be absolute crap.



  50. 50

    Thank you Giles!!!!!!!! He is right Buffy isnt Buffy without Whedon, he IS Buffy! I am a BIG BTVS fan, I even have a the B from Buffy tattooed on my arm and I wont see it if he isnt writing it. They will ruin it like they did the original movie! These producers have been around in the world of Buffy from the beginning so they should KNOW that fans wont see a movie without him. They are stupid!

  51. Laxer says – reply to this


    51

    People like this always lie…believe me, he will definitely view the movie.



  52. 52

    Giles, right? He was so sexy. :)



  53. 53

    i'm not watching in then



  54. 54

    i agree with anthony too… i'm a huge fan of buffy. i have the dvds. and i want people to remember buffy as the hit tv show not the oh that movie that suck'd. if they are going to do a movie it should be with the original cast and where the series left off.. leaving sunnydale.



  55. 55

    when i ask people what they remember about buffy they say oh the hit tv show; i'm afraid with this movie coming out all they are going to remember is that this movie is not going to be all that good.. if they are going to make a movie it should be with the original cast of the tv show and where it left off.. leaving sunnydale.



  56. 56

    i am with anthony i will never see this movie if it is made i mean come on alot of the stars and to name one
    james marsters would love to come back and play spike its going to suck because from previous reports that it's not going to have anything to do with the show or any of the original charactors and it will sux major major balls because joss whedon is not in on the project
