Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar revealed to E! that she and creator Joss Whedon frequently discuss the possibility of a Buffy movie – another one to be more exact, given the show was a reboot of the cult Clueless-esque 1992 film of the same name.

“Joss [Whedon] and I always talk about [a movie],” she confirmed.

“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.

“If there was ever the right story, we would do it. At this point, the stake would be my walker and I would be hobbling in.”

You can pick up the complete series of Buffy The Vampire Slayer on DVD for £83.30 from Amazon.co.uk.
