NEW YORK, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" alum Nicholas Brendon says another film version of the saga is likely, but fans shouldn't expect it any time soon.

Asked if anyone from the cast had signed on to a film project, Brendon told TV Guide Online: "(Creator) Joss (Whedon) just always wanted to make the movie. We've only been off the air seven months, so we're just trying to catch our breath."

"We've talked about it," added the actor who played good-guy Xander for six seasons. "I'm sure if it happens, it'd be in a couple of years."

The 1992 big-screen horror-comedy "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was the first incarnation of Whedon's tale of a Valley Girl whose destiny is to battle legions of the undead.

The TV series ended last May because Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played the show's title character, wanted to pursue a film career.
