Mere hours ago, word hit the internet that Warner Brothers had acquired the rights to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and would be moving forward on a reboot of the property based on a pitch by Whit Anderson, who is currently working on the screenplay for her take on the character.

Well, it didn’t take long for someone to get a hold of Joss Whedon, who wrote the script for the 1992 original Buffy starring Kristy Swanson, created, wrote, directed, and produced the mega-popular TV series of the same name starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, and is also responsible for things like Firefly, Angel, and Dollhouse. Whedon is busy working away on The Avengers, the Marvel comic book movie that’s been set up over the past handful of years to become one of the biggest movies of all time, which he was hired to write and direct. Nevertheless, the fanboy favorite took the time to write a response letter sharing his feelings on the new reboot, and you don’t want to miss what he had to say.

You can head on over to the other side to read the full letter from Whedon, and you should plan to giggle once or twice.

‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ To Return For A New Generation?

Kuzui Enterprises and Vertigo Entertainment are officially working on a possible relaunch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The relaunch wouldn’t likely involve Buffy-master Joss Whedon, as it would be a new take for a new generation. The original 1992 Whedon-penned script was discovered by Fran Rubel Kuzui, who also directed the movie which starred Kristy Swanson, Luke Perry, and Paul Reubens. Fran and her husband Kaz Kuzui, along with Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo are currently exploring options and hearing ideas from writers.

Kuzi explained that they receive inquiries all the time about new sequels, video games, stage shows, and even foreign remakes, but it was Lee’s call and their respect for what he does and Vertigo Entertainment that caught her attention and got things moving forward.

The plan of making a new Buffy for a new generation follows in the footsteps of Star Trek and their many incarnations. While unlikely, there is still a chance that Whedon may become involved in one way or another, but they haven’t contacted him about it yet; and with Dollhouse getting a new season, it’s pretty doubtful aside from maybe a producer role. One thing that is known is that none of the beloved characters like Willow or Spike from the popular show will apparently be involved with this new venture.
