Tomb Raider Finds A Buffy Writer

Tomb Raider, the ongoing adventures of Lara Croft, has found a writer for the latest reboot of the franchise in the form of Marti Noxon.  The most recent Tomb Raider game, upon which the film will be based on, takes a Batman Begins style look at Lara and lets us see her on her first adventure which cemented her as a bonafide Tomb Raider.  Recently Noxon has been working on TV’s Glee but also wrote the script for the Fright Night remake.  However, what makes her an ideal fit for a Lara Croft outing is that she used to write for Joss Whedon’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer so she knows a thing or two about how to write a strong female protagonist.  The Tomb Raider franchise has seen two previous films, both starring Angelina Jolie, and grossed an impressive $432 million worldwide.  There’s no word on who may fill Lara’s shorts this time around yet but the likes of Gemma Arterton and Hayley Atwell have expressed an interest.  Source – Variety

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
