Here’s a weird one!
Apparently the rights holders for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer franchise are looking to move forward with a new movie version of the character, this time without the writing (and related universe) created by Joss Whedon.
Now, let’s ignore the fact that this is another retarded instance of the remake crazy suits in Hollywood missing the fact that they can release a film with a similar concept without using the name of an established franchise.
Instead, I’d like to address the fandom raging at a Buffy project moving forward without Whedon.
…you guys ever think that maybe, just maybe, Whedon was asked about this project? And he doesn’t want to do it?
It’s bad enough that a second season of the dull Dollhouse is due to hit Fox this year, right after Whedon talking about how he’d rather do more original projects in the vein of Dr. Horrible…
But you dudes really want him to write a movie about characters who’s story he finished five years ago?
Food for thought.
