"Find me one person who liked Buffy the Vampire Slayer but not Joss, and I'll show you a liar." ~John Kubicek (Senior Writer, BuddyTV)
It appears that 2012 could possibly be full of more disasters than the end of the world! I just found out that Warner Brothers intends to produce a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie without any help or input from Joss Whedon (Buffy's original creator, writer, directer, everything-you-could-possibly-imagine-er!) Even the idea makes we want to throw some kind of tantrum that I grew out of years ago.
The point is that something can be done, the petitions have started, and WB is hearing the complaints. If you are a fan of the show or you just happen to have a few minutes, please sign this petition!!!
Please help this man!
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.Joss Whedon's reations can be found at this link: http://www.reelzchannel.com/movie-news/8342/buffy-the-vampire-slayer-remake-moves-forward-joss-whedon-reacts
