Tomb Raider's reboot as a video game seems to have worked out well, so Crystal Dynamics is comfortable talking about their reboot plans for the film too.
Speaking to Variety, Darrell Gallagher said his studio is working with GK Films, producers of Rango and The Departed. Gallagher's remarks stress that whatever the next Tomb Raider film is, it will be consistent with the tone of the game releasing today. "We didn't want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old ‘Tomb Raider' films," he said. "They are working from this new take that we've given them.
A rebooted Tomb Raider movie, departing from the voluptuous Angelina Jolie portrayal of Lara Croft to a steelier, yet vulnerable adventurer, has been talked about before. ComingSoon.net discussed the project with Graham King (he runs GK Films) back in 2011.
