Joss Whedon Reacts to 'Buffy' Reboot With 'Strong, Mixed Emotions''Buffy the Vampire Slayer' is getting a big screen reboot, but Warner Bros. has confirmed creator Joss Whedon will not be involved in the project.

Whedon wrote the screenplay for the original 1992 film and created the popular TV series, which ran from 1997 to 2003.

Whedon, currently preparing to direct the upcoming 'The Avengers,' told E! Online, "Obviously I have strong, mixed emotions about something like this ... I always hoped that Buffy would live on even after my death. But, you know, after. I don't love the idea of my creation in other hands, but I'm also well aware that many more hands than mine went into making that show what it was."
