So who's behind the new movie? Fran Rubel Kuzui, of course. She directed the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie (which tanked at the box office, btw).
Can you imagine a Buffy movie without Angel? Without Willow? Spike? Or Sarah Michelle Gellar? I don't want to.
The silver lining to this whole depressing situation is the influx of snarky comments from outraged Buffy fans. My favorite (from Gawker.com): "Buffy without Joss Whedon or a sense of humor...hmmm. Why not just get rid of the heroine who actually does anything and you've got Twilight."
Would you watch this remake?
