Veteran screenwriter and executive producer Marti Noxon—whose credits include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Mad Men, Glee, and UnREAL—is set to make her directing debut with To the Bone, a dark comedy about having an eating disorder.
To the Bone will be produced by Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn of Mockingbird Pictures and Karina Miller of Sparkhouse Media.
In a statement announcing the film, Noxon praised her producing team for helping her create To the Bone, saying:
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” not only applies to the deeply personal subject matter of To the Bone, but to simply getting a film about people with eating disorders made. Without the brilliant Julie Lynn, Bonnie Curtis and Karina Miller producing, there’s no way this project would be coming to fruition. I’m thrilled to be making my feature directing debut with this troika of fierce women in my corner.”
According to Variety, Katrina Miller’s Sparkhouse Media “is a newly launched Los Angeles-based production and finance company headed by Miller and her husband, financier Talal AlAbbar. The company currently develops, produces and finances projects for film, television and theater, with the feature division producing three to five films per year with budgets up to $30 million.”
To the Bone will be Sparkhouse Media’s first feature.
Congrats to the ever talented Noxon. It’s about damn time.
