Pixar Taps Former Buffy The Vampire Slayer Writer for New Project

Former Buffy: The Vampire Slayer writer (and occasional bit player: Marti Noxon has just joined Pixar in order to work on an as-yet-unspecified project. The announcement was made by Pixar’s senior development exec Mary Coleman at this week’s Austin Film Festival.

Besides Buffy, Noxon’s resume features a list of commercially successful TV shows that include Angel (of course), Brothers and Sisters, Grey’s Anatomy, Mad Men and Glee, and even the 2011 remake of Fright Night.

It has not been announced exactly which project Noxon will be working on and whether or not it’s a one-time deal or an ongoing one. Though it’s safe to say that it’s one of the upcoming projects in Pixar’s slate, such as Dia de los Muertos, Trip Inside the Mind (workingtitle) and an unnamed feature scheduled for 2015. Several entertainment authority sites lauded Pixar’s decision to add Noxon to their creative team, especially after receiving bad press for the recent dismissal of Brave’s original director Brenda Chapman, and Mark Andrews.
