Buffy Writer Marti Noxon Hired for Unspecified Pixar Film | The Mary Sue

22 Oct

Joss Whedon isn’t the only Buffy alum with big things going on. Writer Marti Noxon, who’s worked on Mad Men, Grey’s Anatomy, Glee, and last year’s underrated Fright Night remake since leaving Sunnydale behind, has just been hired by Pixar to work on one of their upcoming films.

It’s unclear exactly what Noxon will be working on; Pixar currently has several films in pre-production, including a Dia de los Muertos-inspired flick and the latest from director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters, Inc.), listed on IMDB as “The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind.” (I’m envisioning Monsters, Inc. meets Inception—I can hope, can’t I?)

Regardless of what Noxon’s been hired for, this news has me excited. I’ll be even more excited if she gets added on a more permanent basis to Pixar’s “brain trust”; as someone who’s served as producer on many of the things she’s written, being given a larger behind-the-scenes role seems within the realm of possibility. (And it would certainly be a smart move on Pixar’s part after the flak they took for firing original Brave director Brenda Chapman.)
