This week the new Tomb Raider game was released with both praise and critical acclaim, which was a reboot with a fresh new vision on the character and series. We now have some new news on the reboot film which was in the works.
Head of game studio Crystal Dynamics, Darrell Gallager, has revealed that the new film will sync up with this new vision in the latest game. This means we will get a younger Lara Croft rather than an experienced “Tomb Raider” as portrayed previously by Angelina Jolie.
Darrell Gallager had the following to say:
"They are working from this new take that we’ve given them…It’s a good partnership. We’re seeing the challenges through the same lens. It was important for both of us to have a cohesive version of the franchise. We didn’t want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old Tomb Raider films."
The screenplay for the new reboot are being worked on by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (who both worked on Iron Man) and produced by Graham King.
No news on who will be playing the iconic Lara Croft though.
