More reaction to the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” remake from alumni has made its way online. This time Seth Green, who played the werewolf Oz for several seasons on the show, spoke about the upcoming film’s effect on the fan base.
When asked during an interview with CNN about his thoughts on the reboot, Green replied:
“I saw that Joss wrote that open letter. Let’s be fair, all he really said was, ‘Hey, this isn’t even 10 years old.’ Are we really at the place where we’re remaking ‘Two and a Half Men’? Is that really still on the air, and we’re remaking it? And where is the need for that other than some kind of capitalizing on a trend. You know, there’s no public outcry for a remake of Buffy, there’s only the opportunity in pop culture where vampires are very popular.
If Joss came out and said, ‘I want to make a new Buffy movie,’ even if he said, ‘I want to do it like the reboot of Spider-Man. I want to put Buffy back in high school and I want to tell a different story with this character,’ I think people would go with that. But the fact that people who are not connected to it and were not connected to the show or any of the mythology that was created going back to the movie — which everyone kind of agreed wasn’t a perfect version of its potential — you know, I think that really confuses people. It confuses the audience. They’re like, ‘How am I supposed to feel about this?’
Couldn’t agree more.
