According to The Hollywood Reporter, a big screen remake is in the works with original movie director Fran Rubel Kuzui – who directed 1992's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" with Kristy Swanson – and her husband, Kaz Kuzui.
The new movie will not have any connection to Joss Whedon's 1997 WB series, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, and would not include popular supporting characters like Angel, Willow, Xander or Spike.
The producers said they have not ruled out Whedon's involvement in the new "Buffy" project, but have yet to reach out to him.
