It’s no secret that Joss Whedon was unhappy with 1992’s final cut of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, and he wasn’t alone. Despite the fact that Whedon doesn’t seem to be involved in the upcoming Buffy remake, will Warner Bros. Entertainment’s fresh adaptation have what it takes to rectify the original? Buffy, the Vampire Slayer fans appear to be torn on this–many are ecstatic to see a favorite character’s return to the big screen, while others are up in arms over it. Maybe it’s too early to make a judgement either way.
Here’s some of what Atlas Entertainment has announced: “Whit approached us with an exciting idea about how to update Buffy,” said Roven. “There is an active fan base eagerly awaiting this character’s return to the big screen. We’re thrilled to team up with Doug and Roy on a re-imagining of Buffy and the world she inhabits. Details of the film are being kept under wraps, but I can say while this is not your high school Buffy, she’ll be just as witty, tough, and sexy as we all remember her to be.”
Charles Roven and Steve Alexander of Atlas Entertainment are teaming with Vertigo Entertainment’s Doug Davison and Roy Lee (How to Train Your Dragon, The Ring) as producers. The script is being written by Whit Anderson.
How do you feel about the impending remake? Take it or leave it?
