The New Tomb Raider Movie Will Be A Prequel
Looks like we are getting an Origin Story here folks.
I'm not to sure how thrilled I am about this news, but none the less, the trades are reporting that instead of moving along with the franchise studio heads are wanting to go back and make a Lara Croft origin story.
More from Jessica over at Cinematical:
"According to Lin, casting for the role has yet to begin (now that Megan Fox is out of the running), but they are definitely looking for someone a little younger this time around. Whether the choice for a younger Croft is to capitalize on multiple flicks, or just to pander to the mall crowd, I couldn't say. But what I do know is that I think an adult Lara Croft is a much more exciting proposition than a precocious teen with a Nancy Drew complex -- and isn't it about time that we got some fully grown ladies fighting the good fight on the big screen again, anyway?
The project is still in the early stages of development, but Lin has warned fans that we might be getting a less 'active' Croft this time around, saying, "I would say it's like Terminator - character-driven action. I think for me the Lara Croft games and movies have gone a little too action-oriented. I wanted to have action, but with character." Now I might have only played a few of the Raider games, but seriously? When were those things about characters?"
Well guys, what do you think? Who could fill the boots of Indiana Jones and Illinois Smith's love child?
Allison Carol (Gossip Girl) is rumored to be in the running.
