We have heard a lot about the new Tomb Raider reboot, especially in regards to the casting, not of any role, but the role of Lara Croft, that was once of Angelina Jolie.
Deadline has received a press release announcing that GK Films has acquired the rights to make a new feature film version of the long running video game franchise.
Produced by Graham King and Tim Headington, the plan is to have a new film in theaters by 2013. First developed back in the mid-1990s, the series became famous largely because of its central protagonist, Lara Croft: a brave young woman wearing shorts and a green tank top that made nerds (and not only) all over the world in love with her. Why? because she used guns and was an archeologist.
The a new game in the franchise, simply titled Tomb Raider, will be released in December and largely focuses on Croft’s origin story.
Video games movies have proven to be a really bad decision. Remember Hitman? It was terrible. Same goes for the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life that were absolutely terrible. Video games lovers demand on thing: either you do it right, or you don’t do it at all.
