    Standard Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Reboot

    Die Kuzuis wollen es offenbar durchziehen. Auch ohne Whedon.

    A new incarnation of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" could be coming to the big screen.

    "Buffy" creator Joss Whedon isn't involved and it's not set up at a studio, but Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo Entertainment are working with original movie director Fran Rubel Kuzui and her husband, Kaz Kuzui, on what is being labeled a remake or relaunch, but not a sequel or prequel.

    While Whedon is the person most associated with "Buffy," Kuzui and her Kuzui Enterprises have held onto the rights since the beginning, when she discovered the "Buffy" script from then-unknown Whedon. She developed the script while her husband put together the financing to make the 1992 movie, which was released by Fox.

    Kuzui later teamed with Gail Berman, then president of Sandollar Television, bringing back Whedon to make the TV series, which was produced by Fox TV and launched on the WB in 1997. Kuzui and Sandollar received executive producer credits on "Buffy" and its spinoff, "Angel."

    The new "Buffy" film, however, would have no connection to the TV series, nor would it use popular supporting characters like Angel, Willow, Xander or Spike. Vertigo and Kuzui are looking to restart the story line without trampling on the beloved existing universe created by Whedon, putting the parties in a similar situation faced by Paramount, J.J. Abrams and his crew when relaunching "Star Trek."

    One of the underlying ideas of "Buffy" allows Vertigo and Kuzui to do just that: that each generation has its own vampire slayer to protect it. The goal would be to make a darker, event-sized movie that would, of course, have franchise potential.

    The parties are meeting with writers and hearing takes, and later will look for a home for the project. The producers do not rule out Whedon's involvement but have not yet reached out to him.Speaking from Tokyo, Fran Kuzui said the company is constantly approached not only about sequels but theater, video games and foreign remakes for "Buffy." When Vertigo's Lee contacted them, they were intrigued.

    "It was Roy's interest in taking Buffy into a new place that grabbed us," she said, noting that original exec producer Sandy Gallin also was consulted. "It was based on our respect for what he does, and his particular sensitivity to Asian filmmakers, that we wanted to work with him."

    Kuzui, who is prepping do direct a movie in Japan in the fall, added: "Everything has its moment. Every movie takes on a life at some point, and this seems like the moment to do this."
    'Buffy' in for feature relaunch

    Warum nicht gleich Fray als Grundlage nehmen? Das wäre doch was...

    Buffy der Film war doch eher durchschnitt soweit ich mich erinnere, erst die nachfolgende Serie und dessen Spinoff haben überzeugt.

    Ein remake von diesem Film ohne bezug zur Serie?

    Kein Remake, ein Reboot. Das ist ein Unterschied.

    Ein Rebootversuch einer Serie (an dessen Charactere se auch garkeine rechte haben) setze ich fast gleich mit den Remake des einen Films welcher vor der Serie rauskam.

    Ich seh da keinen wirklichen Unterschied, einen einzelnen Film kann man wohl schlecht rebooten.

    Die wollen mit den Rechten an den schwachen Film die Fans der Serie und damit das Franchise der Serie wiederbeleben.

    Ich denke mal ich werde wohl nicht der einzige Sein der darin einen gewissen Logikfehler erkennt.

    Nun ist es soweit:

    Warner Brothers produziert den Reboot:
    Warner Bros Reboots ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’; UPDATE: Joss Whedon Reacts – Deadline.com

    Joss Whedons Kommentar:

    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.

    Leave me to my pain! Sincerely, Joss Whedon.
