Whedon-less “Buffy” reboot “shelved for now”

…after a High School Musical star drops out.

The reboot would have been based on not the seven-year running, critically lauded and iconic television show, but the 1992 movie nobody saw, and featured Pee Wee Hermann as a vampire. So it would have excluded all the supporting characters–Willow, Xander, Giles, Angel, Cordelia, Spike–who made the show work.

Well, Whedon’s flagship work won’t be desecrated in the foreseeable future. That’s the good news. The lame news is his new film, Cabin in the Woods, has been delayed again. Boo.
