Words are circulating that Joss Whedon, the creator of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' TV series, has a script for the movie material of the popular '90s supernatural show.
Emmy-Award Winning American cult television series, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", may be a step closer to being brought up to the big screen. In its November 27 edition, Herald-Sun Newspaper has suggested that a script for the feature film has been written, as reported by Moviehole.
Quoting the Australian newspaper, Moviehole wrote in its report that Joss Whedon has got a film script for the television series on his hand and is only waiting for the green light. "Rumours are circulating in Hollywood that [Joss] Whedon has a feature-film script based on his hit TV series ready to roll as soon as a studio is prepared to commit," so read the quotation.
On the reason of bringing up "Buffy" to the big screen, Herald-Sun pointed out on the success of another vampire movie, "Twilight". "The monster success of girly vampire pic Twilight at the U.S. Box office last weekend could kick open the door for a big-screen return of Joss Whedon's much-loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer," wrote the publication.
The original television series of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" follows the story of Buffy Summers, a young woman fated to battle against vampires, demons and other forces of darkness. The series which started its run in 1997 was starred by Sarah Michelle Gellar. The Buffy concept was first unveiled as a movie in 1992 with Kristy Swanson taking the titular role.
