TOMB RAIDER: MGM Reboot Film Gains Screenwriter Marti Noxon

Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider Reboot Acquires Screenwriter. Marti Noxon coming on-board answers the question of who will write the reboot of Tomb Raider for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) and GK Films. With the success of the recently released new chapter in the video game series, the reboot announcement come as no surprise.

On the people behind the scenes of the Tomb Raider reboot:

Graham King is developing the film and will produce through his GK Films banner. King picked up the rights after Paramount let them expire and took the project to MGM.

On Marti Nixon’s writing credentials and past work:

In 1997, Noxon joined the writing staff of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for its second season. During her tenure there, she would go on to write or co-write 22 episodes of the series, half of these during her first two years on the show.

In 1999, Noxon co-wrote Just a Little Harmless Sex with Roger Mills.

In 2004, Noxon wrote and produced a pilot entitled Still Life for Fox about a family recovering from the death of their son, a police officer. The pilot was not picked up.

In January 2005, Noxon co-created the supernatural drama Point Pleasant with John McLaughlin. Despite an initial strong following, viewership dropped dramatically, and only 11 of the 13 filmed episodes would go on to air on Fox.

In February 2007, Noxon co-wrote the third-season Grey’s Anatomy episode “Some Kind of Miracle” with series creator Shonda Rhimes.

In late 2007, Noxon served as head writer during the first season of Private Practice, after which she left to “[move] on to other projects”.

In 2008, Noxon co-wrote a second-season episode of the AMC drama series Mad Men, “The Inheritance”, for which she was nominated for a 2009 Writers Guild of America Award for Best Dramatic Series. She won the WGA Award for Best Drama Series (after being nominated for the second consecutive year) at the February 2010 ceremony for her work on the third season of Mad Men.

She wrote the screenplay of the 2011 remake of Fright Night, directed by Craig Gillespie.

In 2011, she joined the writing team of FOX’s Glee for its third season. And will not be returning, as confirmed on Twitter on 4th June 2012.
