Maybe blondes really do have more fun after all. Just two months after debuting a fiery new hair color, Dianna Agron has ditched the red dye job in favor of the lighter, golden-hued locks she used to rock. The I Am Number Four actress, best known as Quinn Fabray on Glee, showed off her back-to-blonde 'do at a MySpace party on Wednesday, June 12, at the El Rey Theater in L.A. Bright raspberry lipstick and a flirty floral skirt by Marc Jacobs enhanced the summery shade, as [...] »
The movie is going to be based on the most recent video game that was released, which is a great game, and should make for a fantastic film. Angelina Jolie starred in two movies. The original was decent for the time, but the second one was disappointing. Neither one of them has stood the test of time, though. The next installment of films is sure to be a vast improvement.
Iron Man screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby previously wrote a script, but it must not have been very good if they are bringing on Noxon. She has experience writing for a strong female character, so I think she's a perfect choice »

Angelina Jolie’s Lara Croft brought to life the video game goddess back in 2001′s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Despite a sequel appearing two years later, it’s been quiet on the Croft front for some time. Now, some concrete news has landed! Variety have reported that Buffy The Vampire Slayer‘s Marti Noxon has signed on to pen the Tomb Raider reboot.
Noxon, who has worked primarily as a showrunner, has contributed to her fair share of features in the last few years. In addition to scribbling the Fright Night remake and I Am Number Four, she’s recently adapted The Glass Castle which has Jennifer Lawrence attached to star.
The story details for Tomb Raider are not public knowledge yet as it’s still being developed. It’s likely to include archaeology, adventure and guns strapped to muscly female thighs. It’s gathering steam now with a writer attached, »

Good news and bad news, boys. Marti Noxon, a “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” alum, will be taking a swipe at MGM’s reboot of “Tomb Raider”. That’s the good news. The bad news? Marti Noxon, after writing for “Buffy” in the early 2000s, has since gone on to write for “Private Practice”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, and “Glee”. Barf. She’s also one of the writers on “I am Number Four” and “Fright Night”. The latter was decent, but the former probably still holds the record for squeezing in as many teenage movie cliches into one movie as possible. And that movie was barely set in high school! Producer Graham King has been trying to get a “Tomb Raider” reboot off the ground for a few years now, first at Warner Bros. before moving over to MGM. The initial idea was to launch the new movie franchise around the same »
MGM's planned reboot of the Tomb Raider movie franchise has taken a step closer to becoming reality with the news that the studio has appointed screenwriter Marti Noxon to write the script for the video game adaptation, which is said to follow "archaeologist Lara Croft as she sets off on one of her international adventures."
Noxon is best known for her TV work, having written for the likes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Prison Break, Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men and Glee, as well as penning the screenplays for the feature films Fright Night and I Am Number Four.
Lara Croft has featured in two movies to date, with Angelina Jolie starring in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and the 2003 sequel Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. While the second feature scraped enough in box office receipts for original studio Paramount to give the go ahead to a third, »

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer and producer has been hired by MGM and Gk Films for the video game movie reboot, reports Variety.

The reboot of the Tomb Raider movie franchise continues to inch forward, with the news that MGM and Gk Films have hired a screenwriter for the project.
The person who's got the nod? That'd be Marti Noxon, who's best known for her work writing and producing Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Her list of credits also includes Mad Men, the Fright Night reboot, and I Am Number Four.
It's early days for the new Tomb Raider movie yet, so further details are a while off yet. We do suspect that the successful videogame reboot, released earlier this year, may offer something of a template though.
More on Tomb Raider as and when we hear it.

MGM's planned "Tomb Raider" reboot is getting a little dose of "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer." The studio has reportedly hired screenwriter Marti Noxon - who worked on all seven seasons of the cult Joss Whedon series - to pen the script for the updated videogame adaptation, which will continue the adventures of globetrotting heroine Lara Croft. Though best known as a TV writer, Noxon's feature-film credits include the 2011 "Fright Night" remake and the young-adult sci-fi flick "I Am Number Four" starring Alex Pettyfer. The news was broken by Variety. Angelina Jolie starred as Croft in the series' two previous big-screen »

Producer Graham King’s (Hugo) Gk Films recently teamed up with MGM on the project, and now former Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer/producer Marti Noxon has been tapped to write the screenplay for the Tomb Raider redo. This is good news for a couple of reasons. Firstly: Noxon’s resume is as varied as it is impressive, as she has previously penned episodes of Mad Men, Glee, and Angel. Additionally, it’s very refreshing to see that a woman will be crafting the script and story for a female-led adventure franchise. Hit the jump for more.

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

Trevor Hogg chats with Primetime Emmy-winner Everett Burrell about his career, the visual effects industry and working for Look Effects...
Ray Harryhausen and Everett Burrell“Growing up my dad was a musician and my mom was artist,” recalls Everett Burrell who drew and painted as a child. “My little kids draw and paint now, and they’re only three and two. It’s in the blood.” A fascination with special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen (Clash of the Titans) expanded into a business venture with John Vulich (Lost Boys). “I was into creature effects and props when I was younger. I had a company called Optic Nerve Studios where I did zombies and creatures. I started playing with the computer in 1989 and I’ve loved it ever since. I loved the control and flexibility but I still respect effects. My heart is in the hands on stuff.” The interest in the »
Who is Four? No, this isn’t a mysterious reference to the disappointing Alex Pettyfer sci-fi Ya adaptation I Am Number Four. It’s a nod to the anticipated cinematic telling of Veronica Roth’s Divergent, starring Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller and the handsome Theo James as Four. What do we know about Four? His real name is Tobias Eaton, and he’s a member of the Divergent population alongside Woodley’s heroine, Beatrice “Tris” Prior. You might say that he is the Peeta to her Katniss, but that’s simply reducing Divergent to Hunger Games standards, which might not be fair. Director Neil Burger likely is aspiring to more with his adaptation of Divergent,...

Zom rom com Warm Bodies featured a lot of sweet and funny teen romance moments but also plenty of post-apocalyptic action scenes. When production transitioned into those run-from-zombies sequences near the end of the shoot, Australian actress Teresa Palmer, who plays Julie, had to get into action star mode.
Below check out an EW exclusive video from Warm Bodies’ Blu-ray extras (out tomorrow, Tuesday, June 4) that features Palmer recollecting the taxing transition into the production’s action sequences.

Based on the novel by Issac Marion, the movie stars Nicholas Hoult (Jack the Giant Slayer) as R, a zombie who rescues human survivor Julie (Teresa Palmer, I Am Number Four) from an attack by other zombies.

Critics loved Warm Bodies, giving it an 80% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Moviegoers felt the same, and the film earned $66 million at the box office.

You know the space at your local Barnes and Noble where the graphic-novel section bleeds into the young-adult section? This is the place where The CW lives. I like to imagine that the network has installed surveillance cameras in the spines of all those unsellable copies of Chris Ware’s Building Stories so its execs can spy on their target audience, see what their buying, and develop accordingly. The geeky, young, female-skewing weblet announced today that it will add three new dramas and reorganize its schedule to use existing successful franchises like Arrow and Supernatural to build hits and stronger nights. »
