Big screen “Buffy” without Joss?

According to this Hollywood Reporter article, the Kuzuis intend to reboot the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” film franchise. The original movie was produced and directed by the pair, who retained Executive Producer credit on the TV series. The main difference here: due to the rights as outlined in the original agreement, they are under no obligation to involve Joss Whedon in any way, and are running with a reboot concept pitched by Roy Lee from Vertigo Entertainment. This won’t involve characters created for the TV series, either, including Angel, Spike, Xander and Willow. My personal commentary: they’re going to need to hit it out of the part to get the existing fanbase to accept a “Buffy” project that doesn’t involve Joss Whedon. I’m sure I’m not the only fan who greatly preferred the TV series to the original movie.
