A New Lara Croft Movie is in the Works

Lara Croft - Tomb Rider

Warner Bros. are in early development on a reboot of Tomb Raider and Lara Croft could soon be going on a new big-screen mission.

Paramount previously made the two movies based on the popular video game, but the rights have since reverted to Eidos. When WB upped its stake to 19.92% in Eidos in December, films rights to the property were included as part of the deal.

Dan Lin who will produce the next Lara Croft movie, is also the producer behind Warners’ upcoming Guy Ritchie-directed “Sherlock Holmes” and “Terminator Salvation.”

The new project is expected to revamp the character and her mission and bear little resemblance to the original pictures. It will re-imagine the origins of the character, her love interest and the main villain.

Angelina Jolie played the part in 2001’s “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” and in the sequel “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” in 2003. Both films were panned by critics, and Jolie was given a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress for her performances in the two movies.

The first pic, grossed a whopping $275 million worldwide, while the follow-up earned a more modest $157 million.

    I take offence to the critics making fun of her. Angelina Jolie IS THE SEXIEST WOMAN, and I happen to like her acting. You are insane to think anyone else could replace her. Anywho, I look a lot like her so..ya… You Rock!

    Face a few realities. Angelina Jolie will not play Lara Croft again for a number of reasons: 1. She’s too old. 2. She’s too fat. 3. She is not physically fit enough for such a physically demanding role. 4. She is too greedy to work for what the studio would be willing to pay her. 5. She just doesn’t care about the fan base that made her a star. Too bad but there it is. I wish it was different but it isn’t.
