Joss Whedon Comments On Buffy Movie Reboot

joss whedon comments on buffy remake

Curious to hear what Joss Whedon, creator of the Buffy TV show has to say about the new movie reboot?

Let's see if he's as unhappy about this news as we are….

Kristin, I'm glad you asked for my thoughts on the announcement of Buffy the cinema film. This is a sad, sad reflection on our times, when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths—just because they can't think of an original idea of their own, like I did with my Avengers idea that I made up myself.

Obviously I have strong, mixed emotions about something like this. My first reaction upon hearing who was writing it was, "Whit Stillman AND Wes Anderson? This is gonna be the most sardonically adorable movie EVER." Apparently I was misinformed. Then I thought, "I'll make a mint! This is worth more than all my Toy Story residuals combined!" Apparently I am seldom informed of anything. And possibly a little slow. But seriously, are vampires even popular any more?

I always hoped that Buffy would live on even after my death. But, you know, AFTER. I don't love the idea of my creation in other hands, but I'm also well aware that many more hands than mine went into making that show what it was. And there is no legal grounds for doing anything other than sighing audibly. I can't wish people who are passionate about my little myth ill. I can, however, take this time to announce that I'm making a Batman movie. Because there's a franchise that truly needs updating. So look for The Dark Knight Rises Way Earlier Than That Other One And Also More Cheaply And In Toronto, rebooting into a theater near you.

Leave me to my pain! Sincerely, Joss Whedon.

LOLs. We couldn't have asked for a better reaction, Joss.

We ALMOST feel okay about this Buffy reboot based solely on the fact that it spurred you to write such a HIGHlarious, clever response!

Don't worry, bb. Your Buffy will ALWAYS be the only Buffy in our hearts.

How do U feel about the Buffy reboot?

    Your buffy will be forever



  3. 3

    This is just so wrong to do it without Joss and the cast. I hope it flops!



  4. 4

    As much as I would love to see Buffy come back and kill all those silly sparkly vampires, Josh's Buffy was way too good to be copied.



  5. 5

    As much as I love this guy, and the job he did. People do realize that Buffy isn't his right? Buffy was around before him (remember the movie and the comics?) and he made his own version of it. These other people are now doing the same thing, making their own version of it. Don't hate others for doing the same thing you did.

    Re: Unbelievable!Re: Unbelievable!Re: Unbelievable! – You might want to look up the facts first before you speak. Josh Whedon WROTE the original Buffy The Vampire Slayer Movie, it is his. And the comics, came from the tv series, not the movie. So he has every right to be saying what he is saying.



  7. 7

    Re: Unbelievable! – Joss wrote the movie. He even walked out because it was so bad. What are you talking about?



  8. 8

    I feel like that ^
    you said it Joss. Keep pouring out Season 8 comics. S'all good.



  9. 9

    Re: Unbelievable!
    uhh… Joss directed the original movie and had a part in the comic book series, just as much as he does now. He created Buffy the Vampire slayer.. get your facts straight.

    Re: alleybot – well, Joss didn't direct the old movie, but he DID write it. It is his creation, and HE was the genius who birthed the greatest heroine of modern pop culture…. Leave his vision to him!!!



  11. 11

    seriously doesn't he have some kind of TM to buffy?

    how can they just take his idea and rape it without his full consent?



  12. 12

    Joss created the buffy we all know and love and there will be no other better. And I have nothing wrong with people creating their own versions of things. But with what movies have become lately and all the dumb vampire shit out it will more than likely cater to young girls once again like every other vampire idea out there currently.



  13. 13

    WHAT!!!
    this is a crazy idea!!! i really cant imagen watching Buffy without the Joss and the KICK ASS cast!!
    i just dont even wanna think about something like this really being made! i though if a Buffy movie was EVERR going to be made, it would be because the original cast and joss were all up for it! not a re-make. UGHHH



  14. 14

    I freakin love Buffy. New version? Not so much.



  15. 15

    Says the guy who rebooted Buffy from a crappy Kristy Swanson movie…which was a reboot of a comic, I assume. I don't get why people care about this guy so much.



  16. 16

    once again people get your facts straight, he created buffy. he came up with the character in the 1992 movie. she was never seen before that, and the comics came after the show. so yeah he is the creator of this ionic character.

    Re: brandyc – - While Joss created the concept — and wrote the screenplay — for the original "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" movie (with Kristy Swanson), he did not have creative control during the process of the filmmaking. The director and producers had their own vision, which was not his. He was able to successfully interpret his concept when he was offered to develop the story into a television show and to explore his different ideas.



  18. 18

    Re: brandyc – WRONG. Look shit up before you spew your stupidity.

    the have no right to steal buffy from joss, just for that im not going to watch it XD
    i love you joss
