Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been spoofed with a porn parody and even scarier than that, it was almost remade in a new film that did not include BtVS creator Joss Whedon (thankfully, the planned Jossless remake was killed before it even began) … but today, we learn that there is a slight possibility that an actual, sanctioned Buffy movie might be made one day … IF the story was done right. This amazing news comes not from Whedon or any movie studio … but from BtVS star Sarah Michelle Gellar herself. As you may recall, we learned earlier this year that SMG is returning to TV this Fall in a new CBS series called The Crazy Ones and while promoting her new TV show, she was asked the BtVS movie question. Click below to read exactly what she said about the possibility of Buffy heading to the big screen some day.
Buffy Summers is no stranger to coming back from the dead, and there’s the tiniest of chances that her show could follow suit — on the big screen. “If there ever was the right story, we would do it,” Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself Sarah Michelle Gellar recently told E! while promoting her upcoming CBS comedy The Crazy Ones. The (formerly) Chosen One said that she and Buffy creator Joss Whedon — who also wrote the 1992 feature film that preceded the supernatural TV series — have spoken about bringing Buff back to the cineplex. “But the thing with Buffy is that Buffy was a movie, and it ultimately didn’t work as a film,” she said, mainly because “the story works better over time” … “At this point,” Gellar joked, “the stake would be my walker and I would be hobbling in.”
Sigh. As AMAZING as it is to have SMG speak positively about a BtVS movie, I really fear that it will never happen … at least, not with the Buffy actors that we all know and love so much. Unless a movie could come to fruition in the next few years, it might be too late to properly make a great film. Joss may reboot BtVS some day with new actors but I really don’t think the stars will ever align properly enough to get the TV cast together for a movie. I’d love it, believe me. In years past, SMG hasn’t really talked much about Buffy in too positive a light (or at all) but she has been much more positive and vocal about the show that made her a television icon lately. If I had a wish that I new would come true, I’d wish for this Buffy movie with the TV series actors and Joss involved to happen. Wishes do come true sometimes so … let’s keep our fingers crossed, shall we?
