Marti Noxon to Rev Up ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot for MGM and GK Films (EXCLUSIVE)

Best known for her work on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"

MGM is moving closer in getting its “Tomb Raider” off the ground, bringing in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” alum Marti Noxon to pen the script.

Story is still being worked out but will likely follow archaeologist Lara Croft as she sets off on one of her international adventures.

Graham King is developing the film and will produce through his GK Films banner.

King and MGM have been trying for some time to get the project off the ground given the genre’s strong fanbase.

Angelina Jolie starred in two installments and while the original did well enough for Paramount to greenlight a sequel, the second disappointed and did not make enough to complete the trilogy.

King picked up the rights after Paramount let them expire and took the project to MGM. The most recent videogame installment, released this year, sold more than 3 million units and features a younger Lara Croft.

The WME-repped Noxon is best known for her work as a TV showrunner but has started to work more in the film realm. Her film credits include DreamWorks’ “Fright Night” and “I Am Number Four.”

She also adapted “The Glass Castle” for Lionsgate with Jennifer Lawrence attached and most recently has done a production rewrite on the Fox Animation pic “The Anubis Tapestry.”
