In news that surprises pretty much no one, Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar would be interested in doing a film based on the cult Joss Whedon TV series. While talking to E! about her upcoming CBS sitcom The Crazy Ones with Robin Williams, they asked her about the idea of returning as the Sunnydale graduate on the big screen.

“Joss and I always talk about [a movie],” Gellar said. “But the thing with Buffy is that Buffy was a movie, and it ultimately didn’t work as a film. And I mean, we had such miles to overcome when we were trying to do a TV show based on a movie. And one of the reasons is that the story works better over time.”

She added, “If there was ever the right story, we would do it.” Of course, the world of Buffy has lived on in the form of a Whedon-run comic book series at Dark Horse and the creator himself is in high demand after making huge amounts of money for Marvel with The Avengers. Whedon’s got the juice, so if he wants to make it happen, now might be a good time to get the ball rolling. Would you like to see him go a completely new route or adapt one of the comic book stories?
