Tomb Raider Movie in the Works

A new Tomb Raider film based on the recently released game is in the works at GK Films, developer Crystal Dynamics announced.

GK Films has been working closely with Crystal Dynamics to create a movie experience that tells the origin story of Lara Croft rather than extending the previous Tomb Raider film experience.

Like the game, the new Tomb Raider film will be a reboot that features a young Lara Croft shipwrecked on an isolated island. Hopefully, the movie will not include any quick-time events.

[adsense250itp]There is no timetable for the new Tomb Raider film and casting details have not yet been announced.

The first Tomb Raider film, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, hit theaters in 2001 and starred Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft. Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, the sequel to the first movie, released in 2003 with Jolie reprising her role. While the debut film was considered a success at the box office, the sequel failed to achieve the same success. Both movies were poorly received by critics.

GK Films acquired the rights to make Tomb Raider films from Square Enix in 2011 and immediately planned to reboot the film series. Graham King, the co-founder and CEO of GK Films, has served as a producer for films including the Oscar-winning drama The Departed and this year’s Best Picture winner Argo.

Rumors on a potential female lead to take on the role of Lara Croft have been circulating for years. Everyone from Olivia Wilde to Kim Kardashian has been linked to the part.

While Hollywood tends to mutilate video game movie adaptations, the impressive production team behind the new Tomb Raider film gives fans of the franchise a reason to hope for the best.

Tomb Raider released Tuesday for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
