That Buffy movie could be happening — it just might be happening without Joss Whedon and be based on the original Buffy movie starring Kristy Swanson, Luke Perry and Peewee Herman.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Fran Kuzui, the original producer/director is in talks with Vertigo Studios about the project. How could this happen without Joss Whedon’s involvement? Well Fran Kuzui bought the screenplay from the then unknown Whedon and she has owned the rights ever since. Kuzui received executive producer credit on the Buffy and Angel TV series.
I can now say definitively kids, there will be a Buffy movie, but it won’t be what you wanted.
