"If the apocalypse comes, beep me!"  
No Whedon, No Buffy: Boycotting New Buffy Reboot Movie Petition, which is essentially every single Whedonite and BTVS fan who finds even the consideration of a reboot appalling and utterly blasphemous (as we all should). Needs about 10,000 signatures, and already it's been skyrocketing and almost at that mark so, make it happen people!

In all honesty, since Joss has moved away from television, I feel like if there is a need for other Slayer-like females (or female empowering roles in general) in the industry that aren't the Buffster, they should focus on having Joss make a movie based on the spin-off comic series Fray. I mean come on, a futuristic Slayer that alludes a little from the series, but enough to be a stand-alone and create its own universe and world for newcomers? It's the perfect setup for yet another amazing Joss Whedon creation!

I'm just frustrated on his behalf since these people keep wanting to screw him over time and time again with his works. It's so fundamentally unfair, this business. *sighs*

Also, I heard a rumor that Heather Morris, of Glee fame, has been considered to play the new Buffy in the reboot. Thoughts on this? Anyone? Bueller?

I know! What is it about Joss that just makes TPTB want to screw him?

He needs to make more Dr. Horrible-esque projects, things that AREN'T in TPTB's control. *nods*

True, true.

I cannot imagine Heather Morris as Buffy. Not even a little :/
Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on December 14th, 2010 03:50 am (UTC)
Me neither. Mostly because for me, SMG is the one and only Buffy and nobody could ever take her place.

It's like making a reboot of Xena or something. Nobody can embody such an iconic character as Lucy Lawless, it's the same with SMG as the Buffster. It's impossible.

The funny thing is, I haven't even watched Buffy, but the idea is just repulsive to me :/ The reboot obsession is annoying.

instead of the epic stupidity thats gets all the actual FANS mad, why not come up with a new slayer? "into EVERY generation" and all that pretty much BUILDS IN A REASON to have a nonSMG slayer *headwall*

no Joss would still suck but they could at least pretend its a new character.

someone needs to do Fray in a movie or series anyway THAT would rule.

EXACTLY! It's like, hello? There are other opportunities to create an entirely new kind of character along the Slayer line. It just seems very stupid to reboot something that's already been done, and has a huge fanbase already. A fanbase that is furious at this news to begin with. I mean seriously, originality people. Why you no have it? :/

It's far too early for even the thought of a reboot anyway. In another ten or twenty years? Possibly. But this? It's practically an insult. Seriously, show me someone in fandom that actually thinks this is a good idea. Hell, people who aren't even fans think this is a dumb move.

I haven't seen enough acting strength from Heather Morris to be completely confident in her as a Buffy, even though she could obviously kick-ass enough. But without Joss the point's kinda moot. :/
Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on December 13th, 2010 09:54 pm (UTC)
Same here. While obviously she's athletically fit I keep hearing about her comedic timing which, yes, however without the Jossisms it would definitely be blah.

I honestly don't get WB. If they still haven't figured out that it was a bad idea and carry on with it, it serves them right when the crash and burn with this project. And they will.
Renée: Echo. I can take care of myself.rogueslayer452 on December 14th, 2010 11:11 am (UTC)
They just care about the money, not the creation itself. Which will make me happy when it does crash and burn so horribly, because I see nothing good coming out from this.
