Heather Morris won't be the new Buffy

 After rumours started swirling around that Glee star Heather Morris would be playing the lead role on the upcoming big screen reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer , Warner Bros. has been quick to dismiss them.

"We're not even thinking about casting yet, the script isn't even written!" screenwriter Whit Anderson told The Hollywood Reporter.

 Morris has recently become popular after becoming a series regular on Fox hit show, Glee.

 Early this year, it was reported that a brand new adaptation of the character without series creator Joss Whedon's was in development. Since then, fans everywhere and even stars of the original TV show such as Eliza Dushku (who played fan-favourite Faith in both 'Buffy' and its spin-off, 'Angel') have reacted against a Whedon-less remake:
“I go to Joss’s parties. I’ll just leave it at that,” Dushku told MTV News. Not only that but she also took her Twitter to express her opinion on the project: "Joss made the "Buffster" & w/out him... I just don't trust the girl. Or the world."

 Alyson Hannigan (who played Willow) also stated her disgust towards the new movie and expressed her thoughts to Cinemablend:  "That's a very big mistake in my opinion. I mean if Joss isn't involved, it's only the title." When asked about her involvement she said: "Not without Joss. Joss is the only reason that we would go back. I mean, it's just ridiculous to think of that TV show without Joss. That's just silly to me… And all the fans know that, too, so I don't know what they're thinking."

 There are still no official cast announcements from Warner Bros regarding the new Buffy movie.

 According to fans, there is no Buffy without Sarah Michelle Gellar but, besides her, is there any particular actress you would like to see inherit the stake? Or is Gellar's portrayal of the character irreplaceable? Sound off in the comments!
