Buffy Movie News

The LA Times covers this industry more than most, so I'll copy this little note from today's paper in case it didn't get picked up elsewhere:

"'Buffy' film script falls flat

That big-screen revamp of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" has been dealt a setback: It looks as though the movie's first-time screenwriter bit off more than she could chew.

Two sources close to the project say that the script submitted this past summer by Whit Anderson fell far short of expectations and, in the end, was rejected completely.

That's news that will spark celebration from some longtime "Buffy" fans who were less than thrilled by the prospects of a "Buffy" revival that didn't involve Joss Whedon, who wrote the 1992 film and created the WB series.

A new writer is being sought but the entire endeavor may have lost some steam."

I hear there's this guy in LA who has a great reputation as a script doctor. Maybe they could bring him in....

  1. That was pretty much my reaction. I don't have any interest in a project without Joss and the actual characters.
