Back in December, we let you guys know that a reboot of the Tomb Raider game franchise is in the works. Today, we learned that the movie franchise is getting a reboot too.
The next Tomb Raider is planned for a 2013 release; the rights for the franchise are owned by GK Films, and it will be produced by GK's Graham King and Tim Headington. According to GK Films, the goal is to "create daring new adventures for the young and dynamic Lara Croft."
No writer, director or stars have yet been announced yet, and we don't know any plot details, but according to The Hollywood Reporter's unnamed sources, Tomb Raider is planned as an origin story, and that means that iconic star Angelina Jolie may not be returning in the lead role of Lara Croft.
So who would you like to see play Lara? Personally, I think the series should go way into the origin, and star pre-teen future super-celebrity Suri Cruise, but then, I'm probably not in tuned to the marketing and creative genius of Hollywood film executives.
