Sarah Michelle Gellar Not Keen On Buffy Reboot

SMG Gives No Support To New Buffy

We'll be honest: we're not sure we are either.

Actually, we haven't heard that anyone actually does like the idea of a Buffy reboot. Even Whedon thinks it's an unnecessary idea.

Well, it turns out that Buffy herself Sarah Michelle Gellar agrees with everyone else, too:

"I think it's a horrible idea. To try to do a 'Buffy' without Joss Whedon, I mean that's, like, honestly, to be incredibly non-eloquent: that's the dumbest idea I've ever heard.

It was a movie. It's been made. It stars Kristy Swanson. They made it. They don't need to make another one!"

Damn, gurl! Don't sugar coat it!

LOLz!

We share her sentiment for sure! Even one of the show's writers has spoken up against it:

“It’s hard to imagine anybody but Joss bringing that to the screen. I wouldn’t want to be the person trying to write it. And I worked on the show, but I would not want to be that [person] because the fans are very loyal. They’re excruciatingly loyal, unless they hate you, in which case they’re excruciating about that too.”

We hear that! Buffy fans are like circus fires — they're intense! (In-tents? Get it??)

Anyway, this is one project we wouldn't be upset to hear that gets left behind. Sorry to whoever is working on it! Aim for something that's worth getting made and won't upset everyone!

Do U think there should be a reboot movie??

    I agree with SMG!

    If they are really interested in doing another vampire movie, why wouldn't they make more of Anne Rice's "Vampire Chronicles" into films starting with "Lestat" and re-do "Queen Of The Damned" (which she did not do the screeplay for). Interview With The Vampire is a classic and should remain as such!

    Her books are far more superior than any other vampire novels following her work. After 10 years, she now has the rights back for her books to made into films and has expressed her desire for a bankable Film Producer.

    Perez, why don't you "promote" this idea to your readers and perhaps her dreams can become reality!!!! Go for it ~ xo

    ………do ya have any gum………

    Agrees! No Buffy movie - unless it's with the old crew and actors. And seems like that's not going to happen anyways. So, just leave Buffy alone!

    But I do hope to see SMG soon again!

    Re: Fridas – I agree! They shouldn't do this unless its with tv cast. I think they would though if the price was right!

    I'm not feeling this buffy movie at all.. in fact, it's a slap in the face to the actors from the show and joss whedon… blah.. i refuse to go see it.. the day it comes out i'll watch my box set of the show and have a marathon!



  6. 6

    whats with all the re-dos anyway?! All these screen writters and none of them have an original thought?!!!



  7. 7

    If Joss Wheden isn't involved don't do it!



  8. 8

    They need to quit remaking everything. Nobody has any original ideas anymore it seems like. Everything's a remake of a TV show or a remake of a movie.

    Sarah has only herself to blame for this. Whedon wanted to make a Buffy movie years ago, but she didn't want to make it because she wanted to get away from the character. Instead, she did movies like Scooby Doo 1 and 2.

    I agree with SMG. Another movie, especially without Joss, would be terrible.

    And what's with that remark about the fans? Buffy fans are the ones that started the threaded message board (The Bronze) which nearly every TV network's site now has. Does anyone remember Cassie's website that they created in Season 7 for that character who died? That show was one of the smartest shows out there, and is still a pleasure to re-watch (with the exception of the depressing Season 6).

    She's right, no Whedon no Buffy!
    Reboots = Crap



  12. 12

    In-tents? I didn't get that.



  13. 13

    no joss no buffy!!

    those thick faced bitches just want to rack money from these vampire trend right now! they will just ruin the character! and what are they going to do? make buffy a sissy and slutty highschool vamp slayer? and who fuckin cares about that sucky buffy movie that kristy starred on? that was lame! the real goodness was the one joss created for tv! and hell, no scoobies?? goodluck! you will need it a lot, Whit Anderson! you said you we're a fan of buffy? so why ruin her? why not make your creation and post it in fanfiction sites,you know, where fans BORROWS the characters and write stories… NOT STEALING them???

    AGREED! There shouldn't be a reboot film or series as both of the originals are so iconic. Even though SMG wasn't in the movie I couldn't imagine anyone else playing Buffy and don't get me started on not having Joss Whedon doing it. I grew up watching that series and I still enjoy watching it to this very day, I don't understand why they'd need to remake it, it's not like 90210 or Melrose Place it had actual long-running story lines and characters you feel like you know.



  15. 15

    It shouldn't be redone. FFS Hollywood, come up with an idea without screwing over good movies/tv shows that have already been done.



  16. 16

    Love Sarah shes so on the ball with this Kristy and Sarah will always be buffy. They should get Joss and the rest of the cast to make a movie hell get kristy to play an older slayer or somthing stop the remakes. hollywood needs to stop fucking up all the good stuff we used to have.

    I am a hardcore Buffy fan, & I'm glad to hear her & others speak out against this reboot. If anything else is gonna be done with Buffy it should be whedon turning season 8 into a movie, with the full cast on board.

    I Also agree that if they just wanna pump out more vampire movies there is a TON of books that could be adapted. I dunno that I'd wanna see more of Anne Rice's work, I'm just personally tired of it… however I read a book called Midnight Mass & thought it could make a VERY interesting movie. They really need to branch out a little though. People get sick of the same thing, & they REALLY get sick of the massacring of classics.
