New TOMB RAIDER Movie Might Be Released in 2017
Last week, Warner Bros. revealed several release dates for some of their upcoming films. One of those release dates was for an "Event Film" that would be released on October 6th, 2017. According to Heroic Hollywood, that "Event Film" is in fact the studio's new Tomb Raider reboot.
The report also points out the studio has registered the domain name thetombraidermovie.com, which suggests that the title of the Lara Croft origin story will be The Tomb Raider. Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug (The Wave) is currently in the process of developing the film and Daisy Ridley is up for the lead role.
The action adventure film will be inspired by 2013 video game reboot and it will focus on the origin of this badass female character. The director is hoping to bring a Raiders of the Lost Ark vibe to the film. I would be thrilled if we get a Tomb Raider film that captures that magic! I'm also still rooting for Ridley to land the lead role because that would be fantastic!
