Head Slams Buffy Movie

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER star ANTHONY HEAD will refuse to watch the new movie spin-off of the hit U.S. show - because the first big screen Buffy outing was such a disaster.
The franchise began with the 1992 film of the same name, starring Kristy Swanson, which spawned the small screen series with Sarah Michelle Gellar in the lead role and Head playing her mentor Rupert Giles.
The cult TV programme came to an end in 2003 but is set to be rebooted with a film featuring a brand new vampire slayer.
But Head, who was a big fan of the show's lead writer Joss Whedon and his storylines, is adamant he won't be supporting the movie - because Whedon's script for the first picture was changed beyond all recognition by director Fran Rubel Kuzui
He says, “I wouldn’t want to see it, no. The Kuzuis didn’t do a great job on the movie the first time around. It was Joss’ script at the age of 19, but they changed a lot of it. They said, ‘Look, we know best and we know how to make this movie,’ and it became quite schlocky and high camp. It would be madness to do (the movie) without Whedon. It may be a bit like watching a car wreck.”
