LOS ANGELES (AP) — A remake of the horror comedy “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is in the works at Warner Bros., the studio said Tuesday.
A studio spokeswoman says the project is in the earliest stages of development. It hasn’t even been green-lit yet, and there’s no director or star attached.
One thing we do know: Joss Whedon, who wrote the first “Buffy” script and created the TV series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar that became a pop-culture phenomenon, is not involved. The new script comes from Whit Anderson, a 29-year-old actress-turned-writer.
The original 1992 movie starred Kristy Swanson as a teenager who learns it’s her destiny to battle vampires.
