Tomb Raider Movie Reboot Coming From MGM
Movie studio planning to start Lara Croft's story at the beginning...
A reboot of theTomb Raider movie franchise is in the pipeline after movie studio MGM purchased the big-screen rights to the title.
The studio will be teaming up with Graham King's GK Films for the project, which will apparently focus on main character Lara Croft's formative younger years.
MGM CEO Gary Barber said: "Graham is one of the premier producers in this industry and I am delighted to be working with him on this exciting franchise.
"We look forward to developing more projects together in the future."
And King added: "I am thrilled to partner with Gary and his MGM team on rebooting this successful Tomb Raider film franchise.
"The enthusiasm over the recent game release is very encouraging and we can't wait to bring it to the big screen."
Angelina Jolie starred as Lara Croft in two previous successful Tomb Raider movies, and the casting of her replacement is likely to generate much publicity.
