Buffy the Wrong Vampire Slayer

New film planned without the creator or original cast

With reboots of Star Trek and Batman doing so well, why not do the same for a franchise about a vampire-hunting Valley girl? Vertigo entertainment is teaming up with the producer and director of the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer to create a new movie that will reboot the premise of a teenage girl with the power to fight monsters. The planned film won’t have any of the supporting characters from the popular TV series adaptation, and the producers have not asked Joss Whedon, creator of the original film and TV series, to be involved with the new project. A Buffy movie without the characters or creator? This could well be the greatest movie since that direct-to-video Donnie Darko sequel.
