inkpop Fundamentals: November 30, 2010

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ reboot! Before Sarah Michelle Gellar made fighting vampires popular in the title role of the hit show Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, a different lead played the role in the 1992 film of the same title – Kristy Swanson. Though both were written by Joss Whedon; while the television adaptation became a fan favorite, the film was received with mediocre interest. Now, years later, Warner Bros. wants to create a movie franchise from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, without Whedon as the brains behind it. This time around, 29-year-old Whit Anderson has been hired to write the script – much to the chagrin of fans of the original. Said Anderson, “While this is not your high-school Buffy, she’ll be just as witty, tough…as we all remember her to be.” New York magazine.

A literary feast Thanksgiving 2010 may now be a fond distant memory; but for the bookworms out there, a literary feast consisting of recipes related to some of your favorite books have been compiled to make each and every one of your holidays (or simple year-round meals) merry and bright. For the Roald Dahl fan there is James and the Giant Peach Cobbler; if you love Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs there is Cloudy with a Chance of Turkey Meatballs; and for the Yann Martel fan there is Life of Pumpkin Pi.

Catherine Hardwicke’s ‘Red Riding Hood’ ‘Twilight’ 2.0? As the director of box office hit Twilight, it’s no surprise that Catherine Hardwicke’s latest endeavor, Red Riding Hood, would garner comparisons to her previous work; but after the release of the teaser trailer for Red Riding Hood just a few days ago, critics and movie-goers alike have begun to question the similarities between the two films – going so far as to label Red Riding Hood as a Twilight takeoff…with the addition of a crimson cape. Check out the flipbook here to see side-by-side comparisons of stills from both films! Hollywood Crush.

Over to you…are you excited to see the return of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Do you think that the movie franchise should be in the works – even without Joss Whedon’s involvement? If you could see anyone take on the role of Buffy, who would it be and why? Do you know of any recipes adapted from book titles? Can you think of any book titles that would make for a fun recipe? Do you think that Twilight and Red Riding Hood share too many similarities with one another – why or why not? Do you have plans to see Red Riding Hood when it hits theaters in March of 2011?

    I’ve heard about this a few times over the last year or two, but the story keeps changing as to what’s really being planned for it. Not excited-scared. I love Buffy, and the first movie has its place in cult fandom separate from the TV series, but I have a feeling this new project is going to ruin the comeback for Buffyverse/Whedonverse fan because Whedon and none of the TV cast is going to be involved.
