‘Buffy’ remake in the works at Warner Bros.

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

LOS ANGELES— Vampires, beware: Buffy is coming back.

A remake of the horror comedy “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is in the works at Warner Bros., the studio said Tuesday.

A studio spokeswoman says the project is in the earliest stages of development. It hasn’t even been green-lit yet, and there’s no director or star attached.

One thing we do know: Joss Whedon, who wrote the first “Buffy” script and created the TV series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar that became a pop-culture phenomenon, is not involved. The new script comes from Whit Anderson, a 29-year-old actress-turned-writer.

The original 1992 movie starred Kristy Swanson as a teenager who learns it’s her destiny to battle vampires.
