A couple weeks ago it was announced that Buffy movie director Fran Rubel Kuzui was developing a new Buffy The Vampire Slayer film without the involvement of Buffy creator Joss Whedon. The movie would be darker, and would follow a new vampire slayer who must step up to protect this new generation. The Whedon fan community were shocked. Making a new Buffy film without Whedon’s involvement seemed rather pointless.
The good news: Apparently the new Buffy producers did reach out to Whedon after all. Whedon tells EW: “I believe [the producers] did ultimately reach out to my agent after the news broke.”
The bad news: Whedon wants no involvement. Whedon says, “I think that’s something better left untouched by me. So, I wish them luck.”
