In keeping with the now well-established tradition of rebooting everything within ten years of last production, Tomb Raider will be the next to jump on this gravy train.  First, the video game series got a make-over and now, naturally, the movie series needs its own new attempt at greatness.  And it looks like they just picked up a writer in the form of Buffy alumni, Marti Noxon.

If you don’t know Noxon, she worked as both a writer and showrunner on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, back in the day.  She also happens to have her hands in the production and scriptwriting of all sorts of stuff, from Mad Men to Glee.  So maybe this means that Tomb Raider v2.0 has a better chance at not sucking?

Unfortunately, no other details are current available about the new attempt at the franchise.  So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what Noxon can bring to the table.


Thanks to /film for the heads-up.

Nope. Turns out the rumor from earlier today that director Craig Gillespie had left Lionsgate’s film adaption of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is false. Which is a good bit of news in a long list of bad news bears the film has had to endure.

Gillespie is developing the zombie-Austen novel by Seth Grahame-Smith with screenwriter Marti Noxon. The two collaborated on Fright Night which met fairly positive reviews. Does this speak to how they’ll fair in adapting PPZ? Is there a role they could cast David Tennant in? The fans need to know!
