A new Buffy, without Joss Whedon?

The producers of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie are looking to reboot the franchise in a new movie without the participation of creator Joss Whedon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

While the Buffy concept could be rebooted, has enough time really passed to do this?  And is doing it without Joss Whedon the way to go?  Competing against the “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer” TV show is going to be tough sledding, and, where do you go with it? Do you bring in characters like Angel and Spike, who didn’t exist in the original movie? According to the article, there are no plans to do so.  So do you bring in Buffy and a whole new supporting cast?   What are your thoughts?
