So, they're making a new Buffy movie without Joss

Warner Brothers has announced that they're making a new Buffy movie - without Joss. It'll be based on the original movie, the one that was made before the TV show, which WB does have the right to do.

Nonetheless, this sucks. Does anyone know if there's any kind of organized fan community protest to this? Not that I expect we can necessarily *stop* it, but it would be nice to, in aggregate, voice our disapproval. If they think they can tap into a pre-existing fanbase for this... well, at least as far as I'm concerned, they're wrong.


ETA: Apparently they *are* counting on existing Buffy fans not caring:

"There is an active fan base eagerly awaiting this character's return to the big screen," says Charles Roven, who will be producing the feature film through Warners and Atlas Entertainment. "Details of the film are being kept under wraps, but I can say while this is not your high-school Buffy, she'll be just as witty, tough, and sexy as we all remember her to be." - E!
