Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Reboot from Joss Whedon in Works with Black Lead *Updated*



Reboot Writer Addresses fans' concerns





Per Hollywood Reporter, Joss Whedon is developing Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot with a black actress in the titular role. A network is not yet attached.

20th Century Fox Television, who produced the original Joss Whedon drama, have put a new take on the beloved Sarah Michelle Gellar drama in development. Writer Monica Breen, who worked with Whedon on ABC's Agents of SHIELD, has been hired to pen the adaptation.

Whedon will be an exec producer on the series and has been working with Breen on the script, which features a black actress stepping into the role of Buffy made famous by Gellar.

Producers Fox 21 TV Studios will pitch the Buffy re-do to streaming and cable outlets later this summer in a package bound to ignite a bidding war.
