RIPPER STILL KICKING?
Even though 'Buffy', the show, is dead and buried, Joss Whedon is not ready to admit that any of it's characters are just yet.
First off there is the Buffy animated series, now Anthony Stewart Head (aka 'Giles') is saying that Joss is still kicking around the idea of a 'Ripper' spin-off, though not as a series like originally planned.
'He has an idea that I thought would work very well. It means the project is still alive - still something that Joss wants to do. He wants to make a two-hour TV movie.'
Head is currently working on the stage and doing some voice-over work for the 'Buffy' animated series, whereas Joss is beginning work on Serenity, the movie based on his excellent but doomed 'Firefly' show. Obviously no concrete plans are in place for 'Ripper', but one can hope.
