Fearnet.com Exclusive: Marti Noxon on ‘I Am Number Four’
Screenwriter Marti Noxon is appearing at Comic-Con on Friday’s “Girls Gone Wild” panel, where the Buffy and Angel veteran is likely to have some things to say about her next film (after the upcoming Fright Night remake) — the teen sci-fi adventure I Am Number Four, produced by Steven Spielberg. But you don’t have to wait that long for info on the film. Find out what Noxon just told me about I Am Number Four after the jump.
“It’s a big genre action-adventure,” says Noxon, “with the spirit of Spider-Man. It’s not an R-rated movie. It’s a family movie particularly aimed at teens. It’s really based on a series of books that are starting to come out. It’s a more classic kind of [story about] an unassuming guy who discovers he has extraordinary powers and it’s got a pretty strong love story element too, which was really fun to write for me. [Laughs] So it has a little bit of the Buffy-Angel relationship, it has that kind of feel. It’s being directed by D.J. Caruso, who did Disturbia. It’s big and visual and spooky and super hot.”
