Warner Bros and Atlas Entertainment are relaunching Buffy The Vampire Slayer as a potential theatrical franchise.

Atlas’ Charles Roven and Steve Alexander will produce the feature alongside Doug Davison and Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment.

Warner Bros optioned rights from creators Fran and Kaz Kuzui and from Sandollar Productions for Atlas and Vertigo to produce.

Whit Anderson is writing the script. Buffy The Vampire Slayer first appeared as a film in 1992 and spawned the wildly successful television series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz.

“Whit approached us with an exciting idea about how to update Buffy,” Roven said. “There is an active fan base eagerly awaiting this character’s return to the big screen. We’re thrilled to team up with Doug and Roy on a re-imagining of Buffy and the world she inhabits.

“Details of the film are being kept under wraps, but I can say while this is not your high school Buffy, she’ll be just as witty, tough, and sexy as we all remember her to be.”
