Writer Behind The BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Reboot Gets Fired; Project May Be Buried

The reboot that made the internet fanboys rage may be in for a rough time. Screenwriter Whit Anderson has apparently been let go, and the movie might not be able to survive the struggle....





When it was announced that an a reboot to the beloved cult movie and insanely popular TV show Buffy The Vampire Slayer would be going forward without its beloved creator Joss Whedon, the idea didn't exactly sit well with most. Aside from the original Buffy, Kristy Swanson, who played the character in the debut movie in 1992, nobody who played a part in the Buffy verse liked the idea of the Joss-less reboot. With the hiring of its new, eager screenwriter and Buffy fan Whit Anderson being announced, the idea became almost unanimously trashed around the world. Even Whedon didn't have many kind words to spare after hearing his creation would be getting a redo, saying “This is a sad, sad reflection on our times, when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths — just because they can’t think of an original idea of their own, like I did with my Avengers idea that I made up myself.”

According to Hero Complex, Whit Anderson isn't exactly working any magic with the vampire slayer, which has resulted in her apparent firing. According to two of their sources, Anderson hasn't given them the reboot they were hoping for, saying she "fell far short of expectations and, in the end, was rejected completely." The source continued to explain a little more into the firing: “If you’re going to bring it back, you have to do it right,” one key player in the project told Hero Complex. “[Anderson] came in with some great ideas and she had reinvented some of the lore and it was pretty cool but in the end there just wasn’t enough on the page.”

Though a search for a new screenwriter will be starting, the momentum the project (apparently?) had may have taken a serious dip. The future of the continued on screen adventures of Buffy may remain a mystery, but be sure to swing back here form updates as they come.
