Remember that "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" movie that made Baby Jesus and Kristy Swanson cry? Yeah, its original director Fran Kazui, who apparently owns the rights to "Buffy," is thinking of doing a new "Buffy" movie without the involvement of Joss Whedon or anyone else associated with the "Buffy" TV series...you know, the one that was a contemporary classic. They want to do it the way J.J. Abrams has relaunched "Star Trek," so that it would complement what was done in the TV series but give it a new, darker turn that could stand alone as a new movie franchise.
The article adds that Kazui and her co-producer husband may try to reach out to Whedon and get him involved but wow, it still sounds like a really, really dicey proposition. Isn't it better just to forget that "Buffy" the movie ever happened and just move on, never looking back and never even opening up to our therapists about it?
