Joss Whedon's 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' is arguably one of the finest television series ever produced, combining compelling melodrama, an endearing ensemble, intriguing mythology and some of the wittiest dialogue ever written into one epic, moving story of one girl's quest to thrust a stake through the heart of every bloodsucking fiend she can find -- which was, of course, a metaphor for growing up, discovering what kind of person you are and an assortment of other valuable life lessons.

However, like all characters with any sort of market recognition, we learned earlier this year that 'Buffy' was getting a big screen reboot without the involvement of Whedon or anyone who worked on the original series or movie. Naturally, Whedon's very passionate (and very loud) fan base let their objections be heard, but did anyone think for a single moment that anything anyone typed on a message board was going to stop this from happening? A new 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' is coming whether we like it or not: Warner Bros. has confirmed that a reboot is now officially underway.

Hero Complex has a profile on Whit Anderson, the writer of the 'Buffy' reboot. Do her words inspire a sudden confidence and curiosity in the project? Or does the piece only confirm your suspicions that the apocalypse is nigh and this is a sign that all good things will soon end?
