Today at the Austin Film Festival during a panel on Pixar (and writing), Mary Coleman, a senior development executive at the company, announced that Marti Noxon, a former writer for “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Mad Men,” had joined the company on an unspecified project. This is a major development for the notoriously close-knit company, and should at least calm the jangled nerves of animation fans who were surprised and upset by a recent high-profile dismissal.

It may be hard to recall now, but there was once a time when director M. Night Shyamalan was coined by Time magazine as “The Next Spielberg,” and the fact that almost everything the helmer touched, starting with 1999’s “The Sixth Sense” seemed to turn to gold, he was certainly becoming the go-to poster boy for blockbuster genre filmmaking in the same vein as the bearded one. Now after a storied series of missteps which includes directing films like “The Happening” and “The Last Airbender,” along with a notoriously humorless approach to looking at his own work, much of the goodwill Shyamalan built early in his career has seemed to all but vanish from even some of his most adamant defenders.

A little over a week after we sang the praises of screenwriter Marti Noxon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Fright Night,” “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”), news has come through that she’s gone over to the dark side, working with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes on that adaptation of the “Ouija” board game the world’s been clamoring for. It’s unclear if Noxon has taken on this project due to its “gender politics” potential, but we’d guess it has something to do with that Bay money.
