Until recently, the video game character Lara Croft was as well known for her bust as she was for any tomb raiding she took part in. And though her video game franchise 'Tomb Raider' was very popular and spawned two movie spin-offs, the creators were aware that it might be time to not make her such a fetish object for their latest game. That thought process is also being applied to the new movie version of 'Tomb Raider,' as the producers have hired Marti Noxon to work on the script.
Marti Noxon has written her fair share of film and television scripts. She's well-respected for what she's churned out over the years between 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' 'Mad Men' and the recent 'Fright Night' remake. Now Showtime is looking to take advantage of the popular screenwriter's talents as they tap her for an unlikely comedy.
