Heather Morris will not be taking over from Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy The Vampire Slayer in a new reboot, according to screenwriter Whit Anderson.
The longrunning TV series, which began as a 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson, is being re-imagined for a big screen outing, with a new actress playing the cheerleader-turned-vampire hunter.
Morris, who portrays ditsy cheerleader Brittany in Glee, was rumoured to be in the frame for the title role - but Anderson has shot down the rumours, insisting work on the film has not even begun yet.
She tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We're not even thinking about casting yet. The script isn't even written!"
