Buffy, Once More With Big Screen
Conversations stirred up and talk about doing another Buffy The Vampire Slayer movie broke out at L.A.'s PlayFest last Thursday. For the first time in four years all of the original cast and creators gathered for a reunion.
As much as we all would love to see more Buffy beyond the comic series a movie would be a difficult project at best. Gellar pointed out:
"We have two strikes against us," she told MTV News. "Because we already were a movie that wasn't successful, I think it makes it that much tougher for us to go out there. One of the reasons that the show succeeded [where the original movie did not] was that it wasn't a two-hour story, but a story you have to develop over time."
Though I would dispute her second claim that a two-hour story would not be enough time to develop characters and setting since there is a series, comic and established fan community out there. She didn't mention whether she has had a change in heart and would be willing to considering returning to do a Buffy movie since in the past she said she wouldn't.
The other cast members were excited about the idea and each had contributions on what they would like to see in the next movie most involved a return from the dead in one fashion or another. If Joss were to do a movie I would hope that he would move on. As much as I loved the Tara Willow story line and enjoyed watching Anya's development a rehash or revisit would not interest me.
Time will tell if there is a Buffy movie but I won't hold my breath for that one.
