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?

New Wes Anderson Movie Attract A-Listers Like Whoa!

Filed under: Bruce Willis

Wes Anderson does not mess around when he makes a movie! His next movie is going to be an epically star-studded affair!

So far, sources are reporting that A-list actors like Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton are all in talks to star in Wes' new movie, Moon Rise Kingdom.

Most of the parts have even been divvied out!

The flick is set in a 1960s New England town where the residents become enthralled in the search of two young lovers who they think have disappeared, but who've actually run away. Ed is said to be playing the town's scout leader who leads his kids on a search for the couple. Bruce will play the town's sheriff who's interest in finding the kids might have something to do with the fact that he's sleeping with the missing girl's mother, to be played Frances. And then there's Bill, whose got issues of his own of course, playing the missing girl's father.

Drama! Drama! Drama!

Hopefully, Wes has a story worth all this talent! (We think he does!)
