Sarah Michelle Gellar says she and Joss Whedon would consider a 'Buffy' movie if the story was right
Will "Buffy" live to slay again on the big screen?
Sarah Michelle Gellar, who starred as the title heroine on the hit show, says it's not impossible.
Created by Joss Whedon ("The Avengers"), the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" franchise began as an unsuccessful 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson, before being resurrected as a popular cult show on the WB (and later, UPN) starring Gellar.
Since the 2003 finale, fans have been clamoring for a live-action continuation of the show's intricate mythology, with a film spin-off seeming like a natural way to go.
"Joss and I always talk about [a movie]," Gellar told 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."
However, Gellar gave fans a glimmer of hope by saying, "If there was ever the right story, we would do it."
In 2010, Warner Bros. announced plans for a Whedon-less big screen reboot, but that project has apparently stalled.
