A Buffy remake without Joss?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer MovieIt looks like Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo Entertainment are working with original movie director Fran Rubel Kuzui, the director of the original movie, to create a remake of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The trick is, they're not involving the creator or any of the original cast of the television series. In fact, they're not even basing it on the television series.

If ever there was a recipe for disaster, this is it. McG's proposed version of Spaced sucked eggs for similar reasons (a failure to grasp what made it successful). This could potentially work if you took out the word "Buffy" from the title and didn't try to sully the name of the franchise, but otherwise, I don't see it.

Of course, it is early in the process. There are a million ways that this horrific idea can die an early death, which would sure beat the embarrassment of the certain death of nobody going to see this movie.
