Is The Buffy Reboot Dead?

There may not be a reboot of the former cheerleader-turned-vampire-slayer-and-savior-of-the-world according to Hero Complex. According to their sources, the script that was turned in by Whit Anderson "fell far short of expectations and was rejected completely." The project was announced about a year ago and caused a uproar with the fans for two reasons:

(1) It was a reboot, and
(2) Joss Whedon (Buffy creator) was not involved.

Whedon is currently involved in finishing THE AVENGERS for Marvel/Disney.

So what happens now? The report says they are looking for a new writer, but the project "is loosing steam." There still might be concern with the higher-ups regarding the die-hard fans opposition to the whole project.
