In a recent interview with SciFi Wire, David Janollari, president of entertainment at The WB network, reported that the network is eager to air a movie based on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer character, 'Spike' (James Marsters), if only creator Joss Whedon were available.

"We'd ... love to do a Spike movie with Joss Whedon," Janollari said in a news conference at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

But, Janollari added, "Joss Whedon is busy, fast becoming a kind of a big feature filmmaker. He's currently working on an adaptation of Wonder Woman for Warner Brothers. He's simply not available to us. But he knows, and you guys all know, the door is open any time that he wants to do that, for us to do that movie."

Joss Whedon has been tapped to write and direct a Wonder Woman movie and is also developing a supernatural movie, "Goners". He last helmed the sci-fi flick Serenity. But he has also said that he's interested in returning to the Buffyverse with a TV movie at some point.
