As a filmmaker, Angela Robinson has made some real flops – she wrote and directed the 2004 spy girl story D.E.B.S, and helmed the Lindsay Lohan Disney vehicle Herbie Fully Loaded, neither of which made a good impression on audiences or critics. On the small screen, however, she’s a highly successful powerhouse, being the co-executive producer behind the acclaimed HBO series’ True Blood and Hung, in addition to writer and producer of Showtime’s The L Word. Now, after a hiatus from feature films, she’s returning to the big screen with the help of some other notable TV compatriots.
Deadline reports that Robinson sold an untitled supernatural teen thriller to Paramount, a project she will write and produce. She’ll be joined by fellow producers Dawn Parouse (née Olmstead) and Marti Noxon, two people who really know supernatural teen subject matter. Previously, Parouse worked on the Fox time travel drama Tru Calling, and Noxon acted as executive producer on Joss Whedon’s cult hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off, Angel.
There are no details on the film’s plot or additional crew, but we’ll keep you updated.
