Warner Bros. is sinking its teeth into a reboot of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, the 1992 cult dark comedy that spawned a television phenomenon.
Lindsay Lohan doppleganger Whit Anderson, 29, has been commissioned to pen a script for the motion picture remake of the film that starred Luke Perry, Donald Sutherland, and Kristy Swanson, as a popular high school cheerleader whose dreams of “marrying Keanu Reeves” are dashed once she learns that she possesses the supernatural ability to slay bloodsuckers.
Buffy last appeared in a small screen television drama starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz.
“Generally, I wouldn’t have said, ‘Let’s revive this,’ but Whit’s take is pretty compelling and a lot of fun, and it’s interesting to see all of this re-imagined. This is a completely new reboot. … It needs to be relevant to today, too, and that is what Whit has found a way to do,” says Charles Roven, who has been tipped to produce the new Buffy.
“While this is not your high-school Buffy, she’ll be just as witty, tough and sexy as we all remember her to be.”
Buffy: The Remake is being prepped for a 2012 opening.
