About the Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot

Okay, all Buffy fans are upset about Fran Rubel Kuzui, and her husband Kaz Kuzui wanting to reboot Buffy the Vampire Slayer without Joss Whedon. I was not going to say anything but with Entertainment Weekly (big Buffy fans there) confirming it might be a go, I just want to say that no fan of the TV show should go see this travesty. The first Buffy movie did not succeed because it did not go with Whedon's vision. It was directed by Kuzui and she didn't want violence and it sucked. Some people like the movie but it made no money. Fans of the movie are only maybe 25% of the Buffy TV show fans. Whedon doesn't control the rights to Buffy. Kuzui plan to make a new movie with a new story and new actress but they don't have the rights to Willow, Angel, Xander, Giles, Cordelia, Spike and any other character from the show. Even Buffy's mom Joyce didn't have that name in the movie. The only characters they could use are from the movie--Merrick and Pike (Luke Perry's character). But why make a movie out of a bad movie with the very people who made it bad and not use the person who made it popular? With no Whedon, there would be no Buffy popularity.
