Warners Bros. and producer Dan Lin are in the early stages of developing a revamping the popular video game action franchise, Tomb Raider.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project is expected to revamp the character and her mission and bear little resemblance to the original pictures that starred Angelina Jolie: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life. The new project 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.
Tomb Raider, which was published in 1996 by a London-based video game company called Eidos, was a wildly popular game that involved the daredevil archaeologist Lara Croft on a series of global missions. Several spinoff games have been published since, with a 10th-anniversary edition of the game released in 2006.
No production date has been set.
