New Tomb Raider Movie Will Be A 'Character Piece'

The original Tomb Raider movies were over-the-top and comic bookish. Since the game is being rebooted, the movies are too. Don't expect Angelina Jolie! The 2013 Tomb Raider flick is Jolie-free.

According to the film's producer Graham King, "Listen, the box office, they weren't disasters but I find it interesting that the story that we're telling is really the story before she became Lara Croft, so it is a character piece."

King produced The Departed, as well as Blood Diamond and, more recently, Hugo.

"Listen, the box office, they weren't disasters but I find it interesting that the story that we're telling is really the story before she became Lara Croft, so it is a character piece."

The new Tomb Raider film will be an origin story and will be written by the writing team of Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who penned the Iron Man movie.
