Tomb Raider, the video game, has seen a dramatic change in tone. It looks as though Hollywood wants to pull off the same trick, rebooting the movie series.
Like most Hollywood/video game projects, the idea has been floating around since 2011, with the project switching hands, different folks attached. A while back Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who wrote Children of Men and Iron Man, were involved. Now reports state that the screenwriter behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Divergent and Snow White and the Huntsman is working on the script. With all due respect, that feel like a bit of a step down.
That being said, with Hollywood there's always a chance the movie will never made/released/written. There are so many bloody video game movies waiting to be greenlit and I suspect about 10% of them will actually make it to cinemas. That being said, I think I'd like to see a new Tomb Raider movie.
