No frigging way....

Is it April 1st all over again and nobody told me?

Because I cannot believe they're serious about this : re-making the original Buffy movie without Joss involved in any way, shape or form. Not to mention the idea that it won't have any of the characters or cast from the tv show either. Frankly, this is insane and smacks of people desperately trying to get the Twilight crowd on board.

In-fucking-sane.

Edit/update:
After looking deeper into it, it looks like the original film director Fran Rabel Kuzui held onto the film rights way back then (which would explain the lack of the classic supporting cast we know and love - they simply don't have the rights to them) and is looking to remake/relaunch the film. So maybe more of a Star Trek success result prompting this then.

Currently, they're meeting with writers.

... What????

*googles frantically* OK, I can see a Flight of the Navigator remake, I had such a crush on that movie as a kid and it might be interesting to see it done with new SFX techniques, but Buffy????

It's one thing with a property as old and left-fallow as the original Star Trek series, but with this, it's like-- the reason the "next two Stargate movies" would have been a complete flop, if they'd gone ahead and done them after Stargate: SG-1 took off. Just, no.
