I don’t even know who to believe anymore, man. Now there are reports that Joss Whedon was offered the chance to helm the Buffy The Vampire Slayer remake himself, but turned it down. Which is cool by me. He’s devoted a lot to that character and it’s natural to want to move on. It’s what adults like your mother and I do, and it’s absolutely not your fault. Even though you are terrible at sports.

Anyway, I’m taking this news with a grain of salt. In Whedon’s response to the remake news, he didn’t mention that the offered was extended to him. Though, it would be bad form to put that out there in public. On the other hand, he probably caught wind of the remake a long time ago and made it clear that he wasn’t interested. Whichever the case, this reeks of damage control. (THR)

Joss Whedon Responds To ‘Buffy’ Reboot With An Audible Sigh http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/joss-whedon-responds-to-buffy-reboot-with-an-audible-sigh/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/joss-whedon-responds-to-buffy-reboot-with-an-audible-sigh/#comments Tue, 23 Nov 2010 12:55:54 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=8996 Yesterday's news of a non-Joss Whedon reboot of the Buffy franchise traveled fast and created a collective groan from fans of things that are very good.

The transformation into Morgan Spurlock is nearly complete.

Yesterday’s news of a non-Joss Whedon reboot of the Buffy franchise traveled fast and created a collective groan from fans of things that are very good. I, myself, was all like, “AAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!” And so was series creator Joss Whedon. Sort of. He told E!:

“This is a sad, sad reflection on our times, when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths-just because they can’t think of an original idea of their own, like I did with my ‘Avengers‘ idea that I made up myself.

Obviously I have strong, mixed emotions about something like this. My first reaction upon hearing who was writing it was, “Whit Stillman AND Wes Anderson? This is gonna be the most sardonically adorable movie EVER.” Apparently I was misinformed. Then I thought, “I’ll make a mint! This is worth more than all my Toy Story residuals combined!” Apparently I am seldom informed of anything. And possibly a little slow. But seriously, are vampires even popular any more?

I always hoped that ‘Buffy‘ would live on even after my death. But, you know, AFTER. I don’t love the idea of my creation in other hands, but I’m also well aware that many more hands than mine went into making that show what it was. And there is no legal grounds for doing anything other than sighing audibly. I can’t wish people who are passionate about my little myth ill. I can, however, take this time to announce that I’m making a Batman movie. Because there’s a franchise that truly needs updating. So look for The Dark Knight Rises Way Earlier Than That Other One And Also More Cheaply And In Toronto,’ rebooting into a theater near you.”

So, he took it pretty well. Unlike Edward Norton, who pulled a knife on a toll booth worker when he found out he wasn’t returning to play the Hulk.
