Copy – That’s a big negative – Over.
Or should I just say: NO NO NO NO NO!
It’s sometimes rather embarrassing, but I’m usually out of the “widely known information” loop because: a) I don’t watch the news, and b) I don’t read news too often on the internet unless it’s huge. This rumor happens to be from June 2009, but I have to post on it just incase my two cents gets taken into account for the final decision. Because I’m obviously very important…
The rumors floating around are that Megan Fox (trashy, sexy, purportedly kinda dumb and a raging bi-atch) is being looked at for the role of Buffy in a remake that is possibly in pre-production. That’s a lot of “maybe” written all over this thing.
Reasons why I think this is a bad bad idea:
1. The articles all mention that Joss Whedon will not be a part of it – One reason why I won’t have anything to do with it. Joss Whedon = god, in the case of Buffy…
2. Neither will the original cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (tv series) be part of it – In a charactr driven show, the chemistry of the actors and how they made the writing come alive are not mutually exclusive.
3. It’s supposed to be a remake of the cheesy film that came out prior to the masterpiece of television that was the show (All seven seasons, more notably seasons 3 and 4, and the musical episode in season 6) – I’ve come to accept the goofy film out of my love for the show, but I’m not willing to stretch any further than that.
4. I hate Megan Fox. She is a body that can says a few lines (badly) and men line up and drool over her barely legal ass – which is always in plain sight because 80% of her shots are of her bending over. THAT is not MY Buffy.
Thus concludes my rant. Fellow Buffy fans, FIGHT!
