I'm one of those rare people who actually quite enjoyed the first Buffy film, as well as being a huge fan of the telly show, so I'll most likely give it a look if and when it comes out. A lot of Whedonistas will hate me for saying this, but he is only a writer and one amongst many. It's not as if everything good that's ever written comes from his mind and his alone. I'm certainly not going to prejudge it. For all we know Whit Anderson could turn out to be one of the brightest screenwriting talents of a generation. The premise is still strong and so long as the Kuzuis aren't looking for someone to churn out a Twilight cash in (which would be deeply poetic in a way, seeing as the Buffy/Angel thing was a large contributor to kickstarting the paranormal romance genre in the first place), then it will be interesting to see what a new voice does with the idea. What can I say, except that I'm a glass half full sort of person.
I will see it with an open mind, but Joss wasn't just a writter, he directed most of the best episodes and also executively produced the series, oversaw the whole thing, as well as Angel. Of course he had a great team of writers too, but he was the Master.
