As you’ve heard, Veronica Mars is coming back with a feature film (thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign) so E! asked Sarah Michelle Gellar if the same could be done for Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
She said, “Joss and I always talk about [a movie]… 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.”
Gellar didn’t completely rule out the possibility of a feature though, adding, “If there was ever the right story, we would do it.”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended in May 2003 after seven seasons and 144 episodes.
What do you think? Do you think a movie based on the Buffy TV show would work? What would be a good story idea?
