    This time, driving a stake through Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

    WB have officially announced they're doing a "reboot" version of Buffy, leaving out any involvement by the original creative team for the movie or TV show, including the man considered the end-all be-all Buffy mastermind, Joss Whedon.

    And here's Joss Whedon's reaction: Joss Whedon Reacts to Buffy Movie News: "I Have Strong, Mixed Emotions" - E! Online

    This seems... unnecessary, at best? When did Buffy finish, 2003/04?

    Of course they will make one. Girl falls in love with vampire. Sounds familiar? Yup, Buffy is that studio's way to cash in on the Twilight crowd but they have a known property that will help boost the audience. For all the whining, you know some Buffy fans will see this that might skip other vampire related movies.

    I heard about this awhile ago, but it looks like it's actually coming true. I'm not surprised whatsoever, what with the Twilight hype and all. Here's rooting for a Paul Reubens cameo.

    That'd make one scene I'd be willing to sit through.

    I sence a great disturbance in the force, as if millions of voices cried out in despair and anger, and then were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

    I'm not a fan or Buffy in the slightest, but Whedon sure does seem to get fucked over on a regular basis.

    I feel sorry for the poor bastard - everything seems to either get cancelled or ruined for him. Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse...now Buffy. Such a shame for all of this to happen to such a talented guy - can't wait to see what he does with the Avengers.

    I don't think Hollywood is capable to understand the abstract concept of thought.

    meh, it's just a reboot. Christ, you'd think judging by the reactions that they were remaking the original movie frame for frame.

    Be fair Dollhouse really sucked. And if the Angel comic that was based on Whedon's season 6 idea's is accurate, that show was killed at the right time.

    Well my understanding is Weadon has the rights to the characters from the TV Show. Giles, Xander, Willow, Angel and so on. All WB can use is the characters from the movie. So Buffy, Pike and so on.
