TWILIGHT has either done us a major service or disservice, depending how you look at it. Courtesy of the success of Summit Entertainment’s teen vampire drama, it looks like a brand new BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER movie could be in the works, according to a newspaper in Australia (hard to consider it a credible source, although they have broke a few big pieces of news in the past). Read on for the news and feel free to chime in on the story – is horror heading in the wrong direction?
Our good friends over at Moviehole.net discovered the following in the Herald-Sun Newspaper:
“The monster success of girly vampire pic Twilight at the US Box office last weekend could kick open the door for a big-screen return of Joss Whedon’s much-loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Rumours are circulating in Hollywood that Whedon has a feature-film script based on his hit TV series ready to roll as soon as a studio is prepared to commit. The Buffy concept was first unveiled as a movie in 1992 with long-forgotten Kristy Swanson in the title role.”
We’ll keep you posted if anything new develops…
