Another Movie About a Another Kick-Butt Blonde That Should Not Be Made

Sarah Michelle Gellar in talks for a Buffy movie?

In talks with whom? No mention of Joss Whedon in that article. What if they get her to commit but not, say, Alyson Hannigan or David Boreanaz? The loss of either of them, or Nicholas Brendan, James Marsters, or Anthony Head, would instantly start the movie off at a huge disadvantage.

Will the story take into account the stupid-sounding personal twists of the Buffy “Season 8” comics, or will it pick up threads left behind by the actual Season 7? Which was also kind of dumb–slayers all over the world, in case you’ve forgotten.

Most shudder-making of all, would a movie do what’s mentioned in that link–make Buffy a mother? Lest Joss forget how much we hated it when his team provided Buffy with the most annoying little sister in the history of television, a child thrown into the demon mix would be worse than Dawn Summers, even, which is saying something.

Very. Bad. Idea.

Via Whedonesque.

Update: “Not gonna happen,” sez The Joss. Whew. Also via The Black.


  1. I’ve heard Marsters is an emphatic “no way” on trying to recapture the Spike look, and with Hannigan and Boreanaz both making good money on hit shows, any talk of a Buffy movie is almost certainly just a fevered pipe dream of the non-working former cast members.

    While I feel for Sarah having to support her talentless load of a husband, she’s just going to have to come back as a ghost in a Grudge sequel or something.

  2. Look: Buffy is Kristy Swanson.
