For many years (since the show took a curtain call back in 2003, if not before), fans of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” have been chomping at the bit at the idea of a well done Buffy movie (we don’t count the Kristy Swanson version, even Joss himself has backed away from that one) featuring the cast of the original series. Sadly, this may never occur now, based on an interview by Movie Hole with Sarah Michelle Gellar, aka Buffy herself. In the interview, when asked about the idea of doing a “Buffy” movie, Gellar is quoted as saying:
I have to be honest. That thought really scares me. Buffy was a movie and it didn’t work because her story was longer than that. This was about a girl that you had to get to know and it took so long to figure out how to crack the ending so that people weren’t upset. Of course I never say never, so I’m not saying no, but my fear would be to open something like that up again, to only end it again.
Gellar was also quoted as saying that she’s not quite sure of how Sex and the City: The Movie will work out, due to the exact same issue, re-opening a storyline after it’s been wrapped up. That all adds up to a pretty slim chance of her coming back to do a “Buffy” movie, and since the idea of a “Buffy” movie without the proper Buffy is quite frightful, here’s hoping that she reconsiders and Joss Whedon saddles back up for a second big screen adaptation of his magnum opus.
