Tomb Raider reboot movie in the works

Tomb Raider's developer, Crystal Dynamics, is developing a movie with GK Films based on the video game reboot

Well that didn't take long. No sooner has the critically acclaimed Tomb Raider reboot hit retail shelves around the world, then news of a new Tomb Raider movie surfaces. According to an article published on Variety's website, Crystal Dynamics are working alongside GK Films to produce a Tomb Raider movie in line with the gritty direction of their game

“They are working from this new take that we’ve given them,” Crystal Dynamics' Studio head Darrell Gallagher said of GK Films. “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,” Gallagher added. “We didn’t want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old Tomb Raider films.”

GK Films acquired the rights to the Tomb Raider movie back in 2011 and Iron Man scribes Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby and, like the game, will focus on the origins of Lara Croft and her identity as an adventuress and explorer. This brings it firmly in-line with the story of the latest video game, which sees Lara battle for survival after being shipwrecked on a tropical island in the South China Sea.
