Buffy The Vampire SlayerBuffy / Angel Movies Still Possible !!!! - Joss Whedon Statement !!!!
Thursday 12 August 2004, by Webmaster
Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel creator Joss Whedon told SCI FI Wire that he’s ready to return to the Buffyverse with television films once he receives a green light from The WB, home of Angel, or another network. "We haven’t really heard anything," Whedon said in an interview. "Obviously, there’s been a regime change at The WB. The fans are interested. I’m interested. I don’t think either [Buffy star] Sarah [Michelle Gellar] or [Angel star] David [Boreanaz] would want to do it. But I think there’s about 10 other characters I could name who would be totally worthy of movies. And I’m just waiting for somebody to say yea or nay."
As for a proposed Buffy animated series, Whedon said, "A presentation is being made. It hasn’t been bought anywhere, but it’s still in the creating stages, so it’s still a possibility."
Beyond Buffy, Whedon said he’d readily return to series television. "I had some ideas," he said. "I’m sort of trying to look at the marketplace and say, ’What kind of idea will actually go?’ Because I’m not really interested in making things that don’t. ... So I’m not sure if what I have is what the world wants right now."
But, Whedon added, "I am totally prepared to go back to TV. Not 24-seven, as I did with the first years of Buffy. But now I’ve learned about surrounding yourself with the right people and delegating so that I can actually run a show without ruining my life. And TV is, you know, ... a medium that I love in a very different way than I love movies. The things that I can’t do in [a] movie are things that I mourn: the smaller moments. The ... protracted interactions. The things that make TV really fascinating. Watching characters change over the years. You know, I’ve waited my whole life to make movies, but movies don’t do that. ... You either write novels that are are way too long, or you make TV if you want to do that. And ... I can’t write novels that are long."
