Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider films were met with either derision or apathy from most movie fans – which is perhaps why the next Lara Croft movie adventure is going for a complete system reboot.
GK Films have just acquired the feature film rights to the Tomb Raider video game, and producer Graham King (The Departed) is planning on retooling the franchise.
The production company have scheduled a 2013 release for the film, which apparently will be an origins story – so no, don’t expect Angelina Jolie to return.
That means that King and co have just over a year to get the ball rolling. And with 2013 a respectable-sounding deadline, they’ve given themselves plenty of time to get this new adap right.
