TV movie filmed in Michigan set to premiere Jan. 8 - Detroit Free Press

A TV movie starring Golden Globe award winner Jane Seymour that was filmed entirely at a home in Ada will premier Jan. 8.

Executive producer Rob Gilmer tells The Grand Rapids Press his "Perfectly Prudence" crew had a "fantastic" time during filming at the west Michigan home owned by a Grand Rapids physician. The movie employed local crews from Sept. 13 to Oct. 1.

"Perfectly Prudence" is a sequel to the 2008 film "Dear Prudence," about a TV host who helps solve a murder. It will debut on the Hallmark Channel.

Gilmer said he hopes to write a third "Prudence" script and would love to film it in Michigan.

Seymour starred with the late Christopher Reeve in "Somewhere in Time," filmed at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in 1979.

Joss Whedon: 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' movie to go on without me, despite my audible sigh - New York Daily News

Joss Whedon (inset) is not happy that the 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' film will be made without his input.

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is returning to the big screen, despite the misgivings of the man who created the franchise.

Warner Bros. has picked up the movie rights to the remake, which will be written by Whit Anderson, an actress-turned-screenwriter.

Details of the film are being kept under wraps, but "while this is not your high school Buffy, she'll be just as witty, tough, and sexy as we all remember her to be," producer Charles Roven in a statement.

Originally a 1992 movie starring Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry, "Buffy" found success on TV, creating stars of not only its cast, headlined by Sarah Michelle Gellar, but also series creator Joss Whedon.

To the chagrin if his fans, Whedon is not involved with the feature remake and seemed less than impressed about the project.

"I always hoped that Buffy would live on even after my death. But, you know, AFTER," he said in a humorously philosophical missive to E! Online.

"I don't love the idea of my creation in other hands, but I'm also well aware that many more hands than mine went into making that show what it was. And there is no legal grounds for doing anything other than sighing audibly. I can't wish people who are passionate about my little myth ill."

Warner Bros. optioned the rights from original movie director Fran Rubel Kuzui and her husband, Kaz Kuzui, as well as Sandollar Productions, run by talent manager Sandy Gallin and singer Dolly Parton.
