The Bronze, as we know over at the WB, is officially closed down but Joss Whedon (creator and producer of BtVS and Angel) has always assured the fans that there will
be a 'Bronze' so in the mean time, visit Kristen's Emergency Board or the Joss Whedon Bulletin Board. UPN.com banners are promoting the premiere (Oct 2) and they say something to
the effect of "new network, new website, new episodes" all on the banner so keep an eye out! thanks to Little Willow as always :)
Marc Blucas, as we all know, has left Buffy to do a Mel Gibson film called We Were Soldiers Once...and Young. It has received
a great review (for the script) over at Aint-it-Cool News HERE.
On Saturday April 14, Sarah Michelle Gellar announced her engagement to Freddie Prinze Jr. whom she met whilst filming
I Know What You Did Last Summer back in 1997. The announcement took place at Sarah's 24th birthday celebrations and was confirmed by Freddie's publicist Matt Labov. The couple have
been dating for nearly a year and are in the process of filming Scooby Doo together; a film adaptation of the wonderful cartoon.
For more the latest information about the Score CD - check out the Bands and Music page!
It seems that 20th Century Fox has postponed the BtVS score CD indefinitely. Yes, the
CD that would have contained Chris Beck's Season 2-4 music from
Becoming, Surprise/Innocence, The Wish/Doppelgangland, Amends, The
Prom, and Graduation Day (Buffy's dream, Angel's poisoning, Buffy/Faith
fight, Angel drinking Buffy, etc). Not to mention the 4th season music from
Hush, Restless, TYG/WAY, the Willow/Oz theme etc. for which there are
not and will never be any mp3s. So, unless Fox releases a score CD, we
got none of that!
Seems Sony Records was all eager & ready to go, and Fox put on the
brakes, deciding to wait. Forever, apparently. Fox believes the fans aren't
interested in a Buffy score CD, we need to convince them we are. If they
get a pile of letters, it WILL make a difference. More info on who to write &

Sarah Michelle Gellar is starring in Andrew Fleming's new flick, The It
Girl. She was also expected to headline James Toback's semi-autobiographical
film Harvard Man. The film, according to a major studio's summary is about a Harvard
philosophy major and basketball star who borrows $50,000 from his girlfriend (a
Mafia princess played by SMG) to rebuild his family's home, destroyed by a tornado. Later,
his girlfriend insists he must fix a basketball game for the money, and the
student finds himself trapped between the mob and the FBI - all the while
tripping psychedelically on LSD. Hmmm...interesting. However, recent rumour has it that she has said no to the project
due to script problems and the shooting schedule interferes with Buffy. It now looks like she will star with Tim Allen in an upcoming comedy.
Sarah, Charisma, Eliza, Marti Noxon, Kristy Swanson, & Sophia pics and interviews are in the new "Women of Buffy" issue of Femme Fatales.Thanks Sarahscarl :)

David Boreanaz of Angel, is about to star in his first feature film. He has been cast as
the lead in the Warner Bros. thriller Valentine. The movie is based on Tom Savages 1996 book Valentine: A Novel. David will play a
college nerd who becomes the victim of a cruel practical joke by four
women. Over 10 years later, he has become suave, handsome and
successful, yet still seeks revenge by killing three of the four
women on successive Valentines Days, leaving one more to slay in order
to complete his vengeance. Shooting commences in Vancouver in mid-July for a 2001 Valentines Day
release. It's about time he got a movie role if you ask me. He was set to star in
another film prior to this but he stated in an interview with EOnline, "I was supposed to be doing a movie in Mexico City with
Courtney Love and Kiefer Sutherland, called The Beat
Generation. I was supposed to play Jack Kerouac, which
would have been cool, but I couldn't get time off from
Sarah Michelle Gellar is finding the TV schedule really hard to keep, in an interview she did recently with Venice Magazine. "There never seemed to be enough time.
There were never enough takes. I didn't get the script
far enough in advance. Then, I thought, 'I used to be
on a soap. I used to learn a script a day!' How
quickly we forget."
WARNING=SPOILER: Buffy has a sister! According to Buffy (TV): Desert News has a little more info on the character of
Dawn (to be seen in Series 5) after talking with writer David Fury. The character appears
rather suddenly at the end of the first episode and is the focus of
the second, though the mystery of her origin won't be heavily
explained till about episode five. Fury says "Everyone has memories of
her being a part of Buffy's life. They all know her. She's been living
in the house all this time. It creates this very bizarre mystery that
is not always the focus of the episode, it's just something that's
underlying that. It leaves the audience wondering...but, for all
intents and purposes, there is a Dawn Summers that has always lived
and shared a house and shared parents (with Buffy)". The character
will also be heavily tied in with this season's threat which Fury
explains in cryptic detail: "I'll just say this - we're moving into
'god' territory...possibly something along the lines of The Powers
That Be on 'Angel.' But more importantly, they're not just your
run-of-the-mill demon-of-the-week or vampires looking to take control.
They're pretty terrible and ancient and pretty all-powerful". Fans
will also find out the meaning behind the phrase "'Little Miss Muffet'
counting down from 730", a reference to Dawn which Faith (Eliza
Dushku) made in a dream sequence in the third season finale
"Graduation Day Part II". Thanks to 'TVsHenry'.
It is unlikely that Eliza Dushku (Faith the Vampire Slayer, on Buffy) will remain with the show, particularly to do a spin-off series of her own. In Eliza's own words, she has said, "In all truth, as much as I like
doing BTVS, I would like to return to film work. Staying with the show is not
what I want to do. I think I would like to test the waters in other places a
little more. There are a lot of different scripts right now that I'm seeing.
There's some good stuff out there, and there's obviously some really crappy
stuff.So we're looking at different things, different parts. But no more
Sarah Michelle Gellar received the MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss with Selma Blair in the movie "Cruel Intentions". When accepting the award, Sarah said thanks to Selma for her "most rewarding on-screen kiss ever."

FHM 100 Sexiest Women In The World" have arrived. The British voters counted the Buffy/Angel stars as follows:
Alyson Hannigan (#91), Charisma Carpenter (#35) and Sarah Michelle Gellar
(#3) -- more than Demi Moore (#96)! The only women to beat out Buffy were
Britney Spears who was number two and Jennifer Lopez -- the
year's ultimate favorite pick, at number one.
Amber Benson's new role will be in the movie "Hollywood PA", the first film to be broadcast on the web. Want to know what it's about? Well...it's about a man who's always wanted to make a film or be a Jedi Knight (hey that's what the website says *g*) and right now the latter is looking like it's more likely to occur. Check out the official site HERE to find out more, show your support and win some great stuff!
Joss Whedon, the writer and director of the Buffy, and Angel series has also worked on Toy Story, Alien and many other films such as the movie blockbuster; X-Men. However he's not happy about the X-Men script. According to Empire Online, Joss Whedon discussed his role as
script-doctor for the X-Men feature film.
"They wanted me to punch up the last fight. I said, 'I think you've got a greater
problem than that,' " explained the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. "I
didn't think the script was any good, so I did a major overhaul of the script. And
yeah, I was the only real X-Men fan on the project that I know of."
"The director threw it out…they went back to another version," Whedon
continued. "A teeny bit of what I had written got in and I heard that more of it
got in after the read-through. I don't know, but basically I was treated incredibly
shabbily. Not by the director - in movies that's his prerogative. But I was just
staggered by what I thought was a terrible decision - I actually got a copy of
the script later and found out that they had thrown out the entire re-write I had
X-Men wasn't the only upcoming blockbuster that Whedon was called in to
work on. The creators of Titan A.E. hired him to fix the script. "I did a great
thundering re-write on that, bigger than the one I did on X-Men and a lot more
of that actually stayed in the film."
Asked if he had seen either film, Whedon replied: "I've seen Titan, I haven't
seen anything of X-Men - no-one is actually contractually or legally allowed to
say the words X-Men to me in the workplace anymore…I've gotta see, I'm so
curious to know. Every director has his vision, but I would not have given Halle
Berry that hair."
