As if we needed more proof that no one has any original ideas in Hollywood, the geniuses at Warner Bros. have decided to remake the 1992 Buffy The Vampire Slayer movie. As a diehard Buffy fan there are so many things wrong with this production:
- Joss Whedon is NOT involved! How dare you touch sacred territory and go remake Buffy which was Whedon’s holy creation?!
- This is NOT a movie based on the TV show therefore it won’t be staring the amazing cast that we desperately want to see in a reunion
- All the twelve year olds who are high off of Vampire Diaries and Twilight will assume this is just another teenage vampire movie and become obsessed with it. Meanwhile, true Buffy fans are like a cult. Don’t mess with our Buffy or we will stake you!
- Furthermore, enough with the vampires already. We all know Buffy did it before it was trendy but we’re tired of every new movie being about vampires
- No. Just N-O!
Even Whedon himself is less than pleased about this project and I don’t blame him. This is one production that I hope gets halted before they ever come close to shooting.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer is too holy and recent to be remade by people who don’t know or appreciate the characters and the series.
