Joss Whedon - Joss Whedon Angry At Decision To Remake Buffy

JOSS WHEDON, the American screenwriter and filmmaker who wrote the original 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' film, has aired his concerns surrounding the decision to remake the movie without him, however, he admits that there is little he can do, reports E! Online. Warner Bros recently acquired the movie rights to remake the film, but Whedon has not been invited to work on the project.
The original 1992 movie starred KRISTY SWANSON, and 46-year-old Whedon transformed the film into a highly successful television series that ran from 1997 to 2003. Discussing his exclusion from the forthcoming movie, Whedon said, "I always hoped that Buffy would live on even after my death. But, you know, after", before adding, "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". However, Whedon was resigned to the fact that there is little he can do to block the film being made, saying, "There is no legal grounds for doing anything other than sighing audibly".
The new script has been written by WHIT ANDERSON, an actress who starred alongside JIM CAREY in the movie 'Yes Man'. The movie's producer, CHARLES ROVEN, said in a statement, "While this is not your high school Buffy, she'll be just as witty, tough, and sexy as we all remember her to be".
