Buffy Fans! Negotiations almost finalized for RIPPER!

TVSquad is reporting that Joss Whedon has told people that his panel at ComicCon that negotiations are close to finalized for a 90 minute special – Ripper.

What the heck is Ripper?   It’s the nickname of the character Giles from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series.

Yup…that’s right.  We might be getting a movie (and possibly a series?) chronicling Giles’ younger and wilder days.
