is heading back to TV - she's in negotiations to star in the Melrose Place
remake. The former O.C.
star has confirmed she is in talks to join the cast of the show.
Barton ended her run as rich kid Marissa Cooper on teen drama "The O.C." in 2006. TV bosses at The CW, who brought back Beverly Hills 90210
as a spin-off last year, have ordered the production of a pilot episode of the new Melrose Place.
The show, which ran from 1992 to 1999, launched the careers of Marcia Cross
and Kristin Davis
and was notorious for its sensationalist storylines and extravagant characters.
Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim, who won an Oscar for his 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth
, has been recruited to direct the update.
