Buffy The Vampire Slayer may return to the big screen – but without Joss Whedon, or any of the characters from the TV series. Directory of the original movie Fran Rubel Kuzui and her Kuzui Enterprises label fully retained ownership to the concept, purchased from Whedon with his original script (which she reworked into the movie). This isn’t an unusual situation, where relative newcomers sell the rights to their creations to get them made. Joss was later able to create the TV series in his original vision, with Kuzai retaining executive producer credit. This time the plan is to reboot the franchise again, with no connections to the TV series.
