Tomb Raider Reboot is Officially a Go for 2013

1 Comment

We’ve been reporting the “Tomb Raider” reboot as a very real possibility for a while now, with everyone from Megan Fox to Olivia Wilde being rumored as a potential replacement for Angelina Jolie, who played the character for two movies, and have gone on to greener and less action-taxing pastures.

Producer Graham King and his GK Films have now made the reboot official, and are aiming to bring the well-endowed and scantily clad adventuress back to the big screen by 2013.

The reboot, which will likely trace the character’s origins instead of do a direct sequel to the Jolie films, is now going out to writers.

2001’s original “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and its 2003 sequel “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” earned $274 million and $156 million, respectively. With the sequel’s diminishing returns, you can sort of see why they never entertained a third entry.

Trailer for the original movie:

    Just my two cents, Olivia Wilde would work perfect for the the rebooted “Lara Croft” as scene in the new upcoming Tomb Raider reboot game.
