How much can a geek bitcho take today? First, it was Comic Con registration fail, then the Wonder Woman porno and the news... THE NEWS of this blasphemous Buffy reboot without Joss Whedon!
I need some lemon water and a fan, honey!
Okay, so WB has a writer and her name is Whit Anderson and she will, unfortunately feel the wrath of millions of geek for this. Please see this piece from L.A. Times
Anderson, with a chuckle, said she is ”fighting through” the script right now, but her concept has already engerized some key supporters. Charles Roven, one of the producers of “Batman Begins,” said his Atlas Entertainment signed on after he saw something special in Anderson’s tone and story.Did you see that? “There is an active fan base eagerly awaiting this character’s return…. While this is not your high-school Buffy, she’ll be just as witty, tough and sexy as we all remember her to be.” Yes, there is an active and SERIOUS fan base that want the TV SHOW CAST, not some Twilight/CW cast to crap all over this movie! I can believe this is going forward! Who is making these ridiculous decisions? Why is Buffy even being talked about like this? This can not happen! It would be like the Cathy Lee Crosby version of Wonder Woman... A JOKE!
“Generally, I wouldn’t have said ‘Let’s revive this,’ but Whit’s take is pretty compelling and a lot of fun, and it’s interesting to see all of this re-imagined. This is a completely new reboot. Tone is extremely important and you want the audience to realize what is at stake and the peril is real, but at the same time what’s going on should be fun and inviting and keep everyone engaged. It needs to be relevant to today, too, and that is what Whit has found a way to do.”
Roven added: “There is an active fan base eagerly awaiting this character’s return…. While this is not your high-school Buffy, she’ll be just as witty, tough and sexy as we all remember her to be.” The project has plenty of hurdles ahead, and there is no announced director, but Roven said hopes to see the film reach theaters in 2012 or perhaps even 2011.
No WB! NOOOOOO!
