BUFFY BACK ON BIG SCREEN?
Fans of the great Joss Whedon show have been holding out hope that after the series ends next season, the tales of the slayer will go back to the big screen in the true form it deserves. However in an interview to be published here tomorrow, Sarah Michelle Gellar gave a quite unexpected answer to the question 'Are you committed to doing a film version of Buffy'. Gellar replied:
'You know, I don't...I'm not in to it, and I've got to be honest and say that I believe that, first of all, it was a movie, it didn't work as a film and we battled for so long, just getting out from underneath was essentially a failed feature film and I feel that with the beauty of the story, that the attachment you have and the ride that you take with these characters, and I feel like we make a movie every week. So to take one episode to expand, it's kind of a waste. And I also feel it's kind of a shocking thing for television. I feel like it's saying, well okay, now we move on to bigger things because your moviegoers expect it, but I am the one who is actually, I've always said I don't think it's right to be out and I don't think it's fair'.
Gellar also admitted there's no plans to do a follow-up 'musical' episode due to the sheer amount of preparation involved.
