Seth Green says he's up for a Buffy movie. This is from cinematical.com, of which I have never heard, and I can't begin to vouch for its credibility, which is also a bit undermined by its assertion that there is a Spike TV movie in the works. Does anybody have any further information that could shed light on this?

Apologies if this is a duplicate--I have searched and came up with nothing on this.

Never mind a Buffy movie - let's have an Oz one :)
I saw the same comments from SG elsewhere, but if I recall correctly it was just in response to a 'what if there were to be a movie' question, not anything about any movie actually being a near possibility.

The spike movie comment is out of left field, as far as I know. I rather doubt it was anything more than conjecture that the writer threw in for some reason.
The E!Online report this is based on is here.
They probably copied their news from Moviehole which reported the exact same story. The writers of cinematical column probably assumed the comment about a Spike movie in the moviehole version was a statement of fact, rather than wishful thinking on Moviehole's part. Sloppy "journalism" all around.
Yep. That's the World Wide Web for you. An engine that permits the near-instantaneous transmission of third-hand rumors and tawdry gossip, and an indication that technological advances are in no wise connected to social or moral ones. Not that there's anything wrong with that . . .

Oops. That was a bit provocative. Sorry, I'm feeling a little dyspeptic today.
Provocative? A bit. True? Yep. ;)
Dyspeptic, SNT? I think they have an ointment for that. :P
I love how we all forget there was a Buffy movie.

The movie, based on a television series, which was based on a movie.

nna_funk, yes there was a Buffy movie. One written by Joss and his unique vision that was in every sense of the word was slaughtered by the director in an extreme concept error. In Joss's mind, Buffy the Vampire Slayer's story never existed before "Welcome to the Hellmouth" because it was the first time he could tell the story the way he wanted to. And us being loyal followers, do what we do best and follow with in suit with the great one.

MySerenity, having seen a bit of the movie on cable while channel surfing many years ago, I was surprised that a TV show based on such a crappy movie was greenlighted, even by a net-let like The WB.

My mistake!
Oh I got so excited, until I read it and realized that it was just speculation...but still: it never hurts to have people talking about it! I really do want some Buffyverse back (on TV, in movie theaters, or at the ballet, I'm up for anything).

Yeah I know, I was just joking around. It's not like I wouldn't love a Buffy movie based off the tv series, I don't even often reference or think about the original movie as canon in the Buffy world,

Right now I just want more Serenity movies... and if there's time after that- an ANGEL movie.
I'll come out of the "I actually liked the movie" closet here and say that it had some bits in it where I can recognize the style of the dialogue, etc. Then again, I watch the unaired pilot sometimes, so don't listen to me.

As to the movie, I'm refusing to get my hopes up. I think some of the others would go for it, but I get the "moved on" feeling from both Mr. Whedon and Ms. Gellar. I'm desperate enough that I'd watch a Clem, Andrew, and Willy-based movie, though, so bring it on.

Actually, Seth is the only televison cast member who was actually in the original movie. But alas, his scenes were cut...
re: Spike movie... I was at the Quor'Toth Angel con in London a few weeks ago, and Amy Acker mentioned that Joss has been talking to her about a Spike/Illyria buddy movie, whether for TV or theatres I dunno. Obviously still nothing solid, but at least he's giving thought to it. Not to mention Serenity & Wonder Woman taking up his time for quite a while, I imagine!
David Fury also talked about a Spike/Illyria movie (as opposed to a Spike-only movie) at TabulaRasa in Melbourne in July - he said Joss was in negotiations about it right now. That was the Saturday - on the Sunday, he was a lot more circumspect in his answer so make what you will of that! DF also said he would be keen to be involved in anything Joss did so you never know!
