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.

Spuffy4Ever, actually it was implied in Chosen that when Angel suggested a reconnection she made it a point to turn around and tell him that she did think of the future. This implied that she thought about it with him. Don't you know how to read between the lines? lol. Angel the series also implied that Angel was not over Buffy in the "The girl in question" episode. Spike and Angel both clearly weren't going to give up on her. Because when they said it was time to give up...their body language didn't imply that. However, Spike openly admits he will never have a shot with her. Basically this is Joss's way of telling you Buffy/Angel still have a shot lol. wow.

it would be so awesome for more people my age to love buffy since im 13. A buffy movie would be just simpily awesome and i really really really hope that joss does this because it probably will make a lot of money and the angel movie thing that could be cool if they mix it with the buffy characters and the angel characters meeting up and fighting the big bad whatever that may be like the powers that be gone bad

A Buffy the vampire slayer movie would be amazing... Although many would compare it to Twilight but Buffy IF Joss Whedon makes the movie anything like the show was it will be a hit and they can then keep making the 2nd Buffy movie to the 3rd that would be a dream... Not to burst any bubles but they should also make a Charmed movie or could you imagine The Halliwell sisters coming into the Buffy movie as villians lol epic!! lol

I would go and see the movie if and only if they bring the charaters five years into the furture. Maybe see Buffy as mom and bring up her children or child.

I LOVE Buffy. I would love for there to be a move!! Especially if spike and angel were in it.I want to see where the gang is. Oh and where the almost scoobies are like Andrew, dawn, and the potentials.Major money could be made here and a lot of really happy fans.

actually I'm pretty dissappointed i was hoping they would make a movie based off of whedons comic buffy season 8 and angel season 6, but it is sadly just going to be a remake of the 92 movie, and it won't have any of the actors from the television series. I'm pretty dissapointed, granted I will still go see it but yeah.

not to feed the fire, but i'm curious as to what the story is. Because the comics continued the story of both angel and buffy....will the story be based on one of the comics, will it be a continuation of the comics?

To the last person that comented, Did you EVER watch Angel? He came back in it's fifth season. (It was a birllant season) And I read somewhere or watched a special thing that comes with the disks when you but them that Buffy and Angel are done. D.O.N.E The last scene in chosen with them is the last of their relationship. Unless they make it impossible, she's going to be with Spike, There's actually a poll. "S+B or A+B?" and it was 90% S+B and 10% A+B So yeah, thats not looking good. I want Joss to make a movie, just so they could be together because if that dosen't happen I'm going to cry. I mean COME ON! Anyway. Buffy is the most amazing TV show ever made, and if Joss isn't doing any part of it like I've heard, I'm not going to see it. Without Joss it's NOT Buffy. The TV show was EPIC in every since of the word. As long as Joss is making it I'll see it. I don't care if the origonal cast is in it or not, as long as its the charecters we all know and love :)

A Buffy movie. Sounds cool. I personally think its what it needs as the show did end quite abruptly leaving us with so many questions unanswered. Sarah Michelle Gellar said that she was "scared" to make a movie incase it made the fans angry after opening it back up just to close it again. But I'm definately all for a new Buffy film. And Buffy and Spike?... please.. Its Buffy and Angel. Yes she loved Spike but the power behind the story of her and Angel is too intense to throw away. They should definately have the rest of the original cast. Maybe see how Willow's grown with her 'God like' powers. If Xander ever got his eye sorted out lol. Aswell as all these new Slayers about... What happens with them? And what about Giles and Dawn?... Dawn's a woman now... and Giles.. well its Giles! He has to be in the movie. He's like a father figure to the whole gang let alone just Buffy. I seriously think that It'd be one of Joss's best ideas to go ahead with a movie. It would rake in so many people wanting to watch it and clarify so many questions left with the fans. And so what if it isn't the 90s anymore... It's BUFFY!!!!

Wow! A Buffy movie in the works???? Be still my heart! Buffy and Spike could easily show Edward Cullen what REAL vampire passion is!

I would love to see a new buffy movie. I think now that they have the foundation of the characters the movie will work. We need to know what happens with buffy if she chooses angel or spike and we need to know about the rest of the scooby gang. I think angel and buffy and all the cast members should come together to fight the ultimate evil, to end it all and to close it off for good, so buffy and angel can live at peace.

They should make this movie with sarah michelle gellar(buffy), allyson hannigan(willow), nicolas brendon(xander), anthony stuwart head(giles), eliza dushku(faith), michelle trachtenberg(dawn), james marsters(spike), david boreanaz(angel), amy acker (illyria), alexa davalos(gwen), vincent kartheiser(connor) elizabeth rhome (kate), Iyara limon (kennedy), jenny mollen (nina), tom lenk (Andrew) julliet landau (drussila) andy hallett (lorne) holly marie combs (piper) alyysa milano (phoebe) rose mcgowan (paige)

Come on please. Buffy and angel were great but could people please move on now. She's not a teenager anymore and its not the nineties it won't work now. It will end up like when Friends ended and the fans wanted more so they created Joey. It only lasted two seasons so what's the point. I think the idea of a buffy film or new series is appealing but infact the reason why none of the studios aren't picking it up is because it simply won't work.

What ever movie they make, better feature both Angel and Spike and use all the original cast of both shows. No swapping new actors into old roles.

I say picks up at the end of Angel and buffy comes in to help and stop Wolfram and Hart for good. That reunites them. Then they continue on with the new Big Bad.. SPIKE MUST BE IN IT

I would like to see Buffy set maybe 18 years after the shows final episode. Here we could have a surbaban middle aged but glamourous Buffy struggling to balance her working life and bringing up her kids. Her distant life as a vamp slayer is a vague memory until the relative peace of her surbaban life is disrupted by a series of grusome vampire murders - cue the reimergence of Buffy the Vampire slayer - who comes out of retirement and contacts Xander and Willow who relocate to her town in an effort to battle a new "Big Bad". Here we habe scope for plenty of new characters , teenage kids - husband - work colleagues = if SMG did not want to revive the part an older actress could be cast - plenty of scope - I suppose kind of like Desperate Houswives but with vampires.

there's money to be made here! They should either re-create the show and move them to Cleveland, or do the movie and with the possibility of more.. like the Buffy Chronicles or something, lol! I'd be excited either way :)

I want to see the Ripper movie. The Buffy comics are great, but I think there were a lot of opportunites to further explore the Ripper character, and that's what I would want to see.

I would burst into tears of joy if a Buffy movie came out!!!!

What abaout Spike?
posted by buffy fan! on Dec 06, 2008
i think there should be a buffy movie. because it will give the fans of the show closure, because at the end of the show, buffy just smiles, great ending, but i would like to see all the original cast members in the ultimate buffy movie, because i love reading the season 8 comic books and it would be great if they were turned into a movie! BUFFY LIVES!!!!! and if so, if they do make a movie, and it is successful, the sequel should be an ANGEL MOVIE!!!!!
