Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the 1992 film
which launched the cult TV series of the same name, is being relaunched.
Joss Whedon, the screenwriter of that movie as well as the well-respected creator of the TV show, will not be involved in the project,
nor is it currently set up at a studio for development. The original movie's director,
Fran Rubel Kuzui, is said to be involved. The film is being positioned as a remake, not a prequel or sequel.
Kuzui owns the rights to the property and retained them through the series' heyday. The new film will not have any connection to that series and would not utilize any of the supporting characters, either. Kuzui hopes to restart the film's storyline without involving the series' history.
