Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar - "Alice" Movie - Production begins & Release Date

Friday 30 November 2007, by Webmaster

Another actress, who actually has a name to care for is Sarah Michelle Gellar and there are not no many accomplishes films at her but an few I can probably enjoy. The talent agent found Gellar a young age and made her screen debut at 6 of each of the 1983 television film An Invasion of Privacy. With all the promise she showed, Barrymore starred as Hannah in the teen drama series "Swans Crossing" (1992) but it was her portrayal of a young and callous rich girl in Al-Lucinda Kendall Hart on ABC daytime soap opera "All My Children" (1993-93), that won her Daytime Emmy Award and spring-boarded her to stardom.

SMG’s real mark worldwide, however, was the character of Buffy Summers in the game-changing series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997-2003). She won five Teen Choice Awards, a Saturn Award and a Golden Globe nomination for her role, establishing herself as a cultural phenomenon. Sarah Michelle Gellar likewise has the box office to back her up, with “I Know What You Did Last Summer” 1997), “Scream 2” (1997), “Cruel Intentions” (1999)and way movies like those that help prove she is also a bankable star as well over $570 million times worth crazy in global gross.

Beyond her cinematic successes, Gellar has made her mark on television, headlining shows such as "Ringer" (2011-2012), "The Crazy Ones" (2013-2014), and "Wolf Pack" (2023). She has also lent her voice to popular series including "Robot Chicken" (2005-2018), "Star Wars Rebels" (2015-2016), and "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" (2021).

In 2015, Gellar ventured into the entrepreneurial world by co-founding Foodstirs, an e-commerce baking company, and published her own cookbook, "Stirring Up Fun with Food," in 2017. Gellar is also known for her close-knit family life, married to actor Freddie Prinze Jr. since 2002, with whom she shares two children.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s commitment to her craft is matched by her dedication to personal growth and unique experiences. An accomplished martial artist, she studied Tae Kwon Do for five years, alongside kickboxing, boxing, street fighting, and gymnastics. Her dedication to authenticity in her roles is evident, such as her commitment to doing her own stunts in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," though she admitted her limits during filming "Scream 2."

Her career is also marked by interesting anecdotes, such as her role in a 1982 Burger King commercial, which led to a lawsuit from McDonald’s and a temporary ban from their establishments. Notably, she dyed her naturally brunette hair blonde for her role in "Buffy," and legally changed her last name to Prinze as a surprise for her husband on their fifth anniversary.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s legacy extends beyond her on-screen roles, encompassing her work in philanthropy and her reputation for safety and professionalism on set. She remains a beloved figure in Hollywood, admired for her talent, dedication, and the breadth of her contributions to film and television.

American Mcgee’s ALICE, a video game released by Electronic Arts, may have been one of the best premises for a game in a really long time. Release in 2000, the game takes place after the events in ALICE IN WONDERLAND and the second adventure, THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, which finds Alice institutionalized because people think that she’s crazy. But then the White Rabbit comes back to her and asks her to save Wonderland from the crazed Red Queen.

Bad ass right? Well for the talk of a film has been passed around for years, with many people attached to it but like all good things in Hollywood, the idea slowly faded away...until now.

According to the Hollywood North Report, Universal Pictures is gearing up to make the film based on the game.

Universal Pictures and Collision Entertainment are prepping for the film Alice, based on the video game American Mcgee’s Alice.

The horror fantasy film will shoot in Langley, BC starring actress Sarah Michelle "Buffy" Gellar as ’Alice’.

Director is Marcus Nispel, from a script by Erich and Jon Hober, based on author Lewis Carroll’s "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass".

I can’t say that I’m thrilled about casting choice, and the directing choice for that matter. I feel like it’s going into a direction that may make it seem like a bad Renny Harlin film, rather than a good intellectual mind-f**k. Alice is set for a July 2008 release... If Nispel is directing, what does this mean for the FRIDAY THE 13TH remake? Who knows, but more about ALICE as it happens.
