Hey, here’s something that no Buffy fan wants. Warner Bros is rebooting the franchise with a new Joss Whedon-less film. Now before anyone freaks out, I should note that the project is in more than capable hands. Whit Anderson, a background actor from Jim Carrey’s Yes Man, has been hired to write the script. Oh. Oh no.

However! She does seem to be a Whedonite herself.

”I didn’t really watch much television at all, but I always watched ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,’ that was the one show I would watch when I got home. I just loved this character. I was the same age as Buffy and it was so rare to have a female lead character on TV in those days who was strong and capable and smart but also allowed to be feminine.”

Ummm… yeah. What she said. And monsters also got battle-axed in the face. And before you get worried that they’re going to Twilight this thing up, you should check out this quote from producer Charles Roven. He’s so psyched.

“This is a completely new reboot. Tone is extremely important and you want the audience to realize what is at stake and the peril is real, but at the same time what’s going on should be fun and inviting and keep everyone engaged. It needs to be relevant to today, too, and that is what Whit has found a way to do.”

They’re totally going to Twilight this thing up. Now I understand that die-hard fans are not going to take that well, and they’ll want to petition. I recommend starting up a muffin-mailing campaign or whatever it is that you people do.  (LA Times)

Nathan Fillion Makes Joss Whedon Proud in Scene from ‘Castle’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/nathan-fillion-makes-joss-whedon-proud-in-scene-from-castle/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/nathan-fillion-makes-joss-whedon-proud-in-scene-from-castle/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Nathan Fillion finally has a hit that isn't a cult hit!  Well Castle isn't so much a hit as it is a procederial with a steady viewership.  Personally, I'm a big fan of the show, and as always, Fillion flaunts his wit and impeccable timing.  In the clip he makes his former boss proud by donning the Captain Mal duster from Firefly while referencing Buffy, and a little Underworld thrown in there for good measure.  And all in under two minutes!  I'm sure Whedon is beaming in between frowns due to Dollhouse's eminent death.
