If it's crap ... We'll tell you
So remember that big screen reboot of 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' that was in the works? You know, the one that was moving forward without Joss Whedon involved at all. Well that project has hit a bit of a snag. When first-time screenwriter Whit Anderson turned in her script for the film last summer, it was soundly rejected. Apparently whatever it is the studio was looking for in a Whedon-less 'Buffy' revamp (forgive the pun) just wasn't coming through in Anderson's screenplay. So what now? The hunt is on for a new writer, but no word yet on the progress of that search.
What's strange about this whole situation is that they are trying to put together a cinematic reboot for, ostensibly, a TV series that was itself a reboot of the original 1992 film. Also strange is that the studio keeps spinning its wheels desperately trying to convince itself that this project is ever going to get off the ground. It's been "in development" for over two years now with nothing to show for it but a debunked rumor that it would star Megan Fox and now, apparently, a rejected script. It's possible there was a push in recent months to get something together to capitalize on the expected resurgence of Whedon with 'The Avengers,' but that doesn't seem to have panned out. Like any bloodsucker who tangles with Buffy, I am willing to bet this movie is dead for good.
