Sarah Michelle Gellar has never had such a career high as she did during Buffy, The Vampire Slayer – the show was massive and still has a profound cultural relevance, if my Tumblr dashboard is anything to go by. Since lots of other long-gone shows are getting movies these days, SMG has piped up, saying she’d definitely do a Buffy movie if anyone wanted to put one together that actually worked well, hint hint.
From E! Online:
“Joss and I always talk about [a movie],” Gellar told me during an interview for E! News. “But the thing with Buffy is that Buffy was a movie, and it ultimately didn’t work as a film. And I mean, we had such miles to overcome when we were trying to do a TV show based on a movie. And one of the reasons is that the story works better over time.”
And now here comes the tiny sliver: “If there was ever the right story, we would do it.”
So there you have it. Do you think they should do a Buffy movie or let sleeping dogs lie? I was never a massive fan of the show, though I do remember crying my eyes out when she had to send Angel through that vortex thingy and then I stopped watching. Then I watched again when they did ‘Hush’ and that is one of the only episodes of TV that ever creeped me out. That’s about my entire connection to that show.
