Would she do it?
In an interview with E! News with Robin Williams to promote their new series The Crazy Ones, Sarah Michelle Gellar commented on the possibility of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Kickstarter movie after the success of the Veronica Mars revival.
She said: "Joss and I always talk about [a movie]. 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."
On the sitcom, Robin Williams is playing her father. The series comes from David E. Kelley and is Williams' first show on TV since Mork and Mindy.
He said: "It was an amazing experience [shooting the first episode], because it's been 32 years since I've been on network TV and a regular of a series, so I came in sort of like [looks terrified], ‘Oh, this is nice.' Then I started to relax. Because it's shot like a movie. There was no studio audience. Because the first live audience for Mork and Mindy was from a mental institution and they laughed at everything."
He added that there are no plans for him to ever play Mork again, for those who may be wondering.
The new series also stars James Wolk and will premiere this fall on CBS.
