Amber Benson on the new Buffy movie. "It definitely won't be the same Buffy as the TV show, it will not have Joss' voice. And I think that is what draws people into Buffy's world ... [But] it COULD be great."

I hope its good.

*snigger*
She may be best know as Tara Meers on the series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” but Amber Benson (left, with Sarah Michelle Gellar) has since become an accomplished writer.

Errr, wasn't Meers the surname of her killer?
Pretty sure that Tara's last name was "Maclay" since that was on her tombstone in S7. And yeah, "Mears" was Warren's last name.
How legitimate is all this talk of the Buffy movie? Are the Kuzuis just blowing hot air to try and get interest in the project or has it actually been greenlit?

Very well put.
Tara Meers? Oy.

And what is this "currently in the works" crap? It has been bandied about, but so far as I know, not to the point where it could be said to be "in the works."

Well, they ARE dating now... LOL :D
Well, I can't help but be disappointed that she's even interested in seeing it. I refuse to support anything that rapes Joss's vision ever again.

In fact, I'm refusing to even talk about or read about it anymore, either.
Well she doesn't actually say she does want to see the movie, just that she considers that there is the slightest possibility it won't suck. It seems like a pretty diplomatic response even if it doesn't outright spell out the writing as key and say something like "Joss Whedon's writing/vision was the only thing that made the series watchable despite the best efforts of us actors to ruin it!"

Incidentally, this is the first time I've actually read more information about her book. I initially thought it was just a spin-off of that Ghosts of Albion thing, but it does sound like a kinda neat concept.
orangewaxlion It's AWESOME!

Seriously. I bought it when I was in Madison in April, and just devoured it. I didn't want to put it down. It was interesting, funny (I'll never look at Bollywood dancers the same way), well researched and not predictable.

I can't wait for the next two books!
Is there any information about casting yet or who will be writing and/or directing the Buffy movie? Or is it still nebulous and uncertain?
Sometimes screw-ups like that are hilarious; I for one love the irony of Amber's dating Adam and have referred to them soemtimes as Tarren.

And I highly recommend her book myself.
