Buffy Film Reboot = Terrible Idea.

26 May, 2009

For many reasons that I am way too tired tonight to get into, this news does not make me happy: A new incarnation of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” could be coming to the big screen. . “Buffy” creator Joss Whedon isn’t involved and it’s not set up at a studio, but Roy Lee and Doug […]
