Now that Kristen Bell has Kickstarted her long-canceled cult TV series "Veronica Mars" onto the big screen, could other fan-favorite shows follow suit?

Crowdfunding aside, Sarah Michelle Gellar would consider reprising her iconic demon-hunter role in a "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" movie reboot -- provided the story is juicy.

"Joss [Whedon] and I always talk about [a movie], but the thing with 'Buffy' is that 'Buffy' was a movie, and it ultimately didn't work as a film," Gellar told E! News, referring to the 1992 Kristy Swanson original, which Whedon also wrote. "And I mean, we had such miles to overcome when we were trying to do a TV show based on a movie. And one of the reasons is that the story works better over time."

However, she added, "If there was ever the right story, we would do it."

The only hitch (other than her dubiousness about resurrecting "Buffy" as a movie) is that Gellar is busy starring on her new CBS sitcom "The Crazy Ones," opposite Robin Williams.

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" aired for seven seasons, from 1997 to 2003, and spun off the David Boreanaz series "Angel," which ran from 1999 to 2004. A potential movie reboot -- one not involving Whedon -- was reportedly scrapped in late 2011 because the script wasn't coming together.
