BUFFY NOT BACK FOR ANGEL FINALE

Its official ? Sarah Michelle Gellar will not be reprising her role as Buffy for the series finale of ?Angel?.

TVGuide.com reports today that Gellar won?t be in any of the season ending episodes. She was asked to pop up in the second last episode of the season ? not the finale ? and at that time was working on ?The Grudge? in Tokyo, so couldn?t do it. She was available to do the season finale however, but Joss Whedon decided against it, because he didn?t want Angel?s bon voyage to 'revolve around a guest star,' he says simply. 'We will deal with the issue of Buffy and how much she means to Angel and Spike, but I want to end the show with the people who?ve been in the trenches together, the characters who have lived - and occasionally died - together... the regulars.'

Whedon?s Angel partner, Jeffrey Bell, adds that the idea of building the finale around the long-running Angel/Buffy/Spike love triangle 'seemed to undermine the bigger picture. [So Gellar was left off the roster] in the same way that David Boreanaz wasn?t involved in the series finale of Buffy.' (Boreanaz did, however, appear in Buffy?s penultimate episode.)

Apparently by the time Gellar said she could do the season finale, it was too late anyway. 'We had already written and shot the episode [for which we originally wanted her] which emotionally dealt with [the romantic rivalry],' Bell says. 'So, to go [back] and force her into the very last episode to retread stuff that we already dealt with didn?t make any sense. 'By the time it became a possibility,' he goes on, 'the ship had sort of sailed.'

So what will happen? 'Angel and Spike arrive at an understanding - that?s all I?ll say about that,' Bell teases. 'And without her being involved, Buffy?s character has come to some sort of understanding, too.' And, 'We?re gonna get to the bottom of why we?ve been in Wolfman & Hart this whole time and what we?re gonna do about it,' hints Bell. And, though he refuses to drop any clues as to who will be 'left standing at the end,' he does promise this: 'It?s gonna be big!'

Meantime, Whedonesque and Variety are reporting that Sarah Michelle might be doing a musical soon. Writer-director Richard Kelly, who made his feature debut with indie pic 'Donnie Darko,' has written and will direct the comedy-musical thriller 'Southland Tales' for Cherry Road Films. The film, which takes place in 2008 during a three-day Los Angeles heat wave leading up to a massive July 4 holiday celebration, looks set to star Seann William Scott. Gellar, Jason Lee, Janeane Garofalo, Tim Blake Nelson, Amy Poehler, Kevin Smith and Ali Larter are also in negotiations to join the cast.

The filmmakers are in discussions with Moby to contribute new music to the pic.

'This will only be a musical in a post-modern sense of the word in that it is a hybrid of several genres,' said Kelly. 'There will be some dancing and singing, but it will be incorporated into the story in very logical scenarios as well as fantasy dream environments.'
