Yep. Warner Bro. is currently developing a new Tomb Raider movie and no it will not star Megan Fox as Lara Croft. That was only one of those internet rumors that was quickly shot down by a spokesperson from Megan Fox's camp. But just because Megan Fox isn't in the movie doesn't mean it is not going to be made.
The film will be the third Tomb Raider movie made but this third movie is going to be a reboot or reimagining of the character Lara Croft and her story. THR reports:
Warners Bros. and producer Dan Lin are in early development on a a reboot of "Tomb Raider," the popular video game action franchise.
The new project, however, is expected to revamp the character and her mission and bear little resemblance to the original pictures. It will reimagine the origins of the character, her love interest and the main villain.
As an open-writing assignment, the project is still in its nascent stages. An actress who could play the role Angelina Jolie made famous would likely come on after a writer and director are attached.
I was one of those teenagers growing up playing the Tomb Raider video games and I have always been a big fan. I liked the first Tomb Raider movie, but didn't really care for the second one. It will be interesting to see who they get to play Lara Croft this time around. Any thoughts one who you think it might be or who you would like to see in the costume?
