Producer Offers Update On Tomb Raider Reboot; Movie To Take Lara Croft "Back To Her Roots"!
The upcoming reboot of the video game turned movie looks set to take Lara Croft back to her roots, and you can find out exactly what that means in this revealing interview with producer Graham King...
Thanks to Collider, we have some new details on the status of the planned Tomb Raider reboot. After two fairly successful movies starring Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft, the studio are now planning on exploring the early years of the iconic video game character...exactly what an upcoming video game from Square Enix will do. Here's what producer Graham King told the site. You can find more by clicking on the link below.
On When Production May Start And The New Direction Of The Franchise:
I think hopefully next year. We just got the script in on Tomb Raider and it’s really good. It’s something that, for me anyway, is different, you know rebooting a franchise that I didn’t produce to begin with. But there’s something about her character and going back to her roots, and that’s what we’re doing with this. You’re actually gonna meet her before she has all her powers as Lara Croft. It’s more of a character study, but it’s a really fun, fun adventure story.
On The Chances Of Seeing Angelina Jolie Cameo In Some Way:
I don’t know, you know we’ve spoken about Tomb Raider and we’ll have to see. I mean she’s so wonderful, she just directed this movie for me, In the Land of Blood and Honey, which I think we’re about five weeks from releasing and I can’t wait for people to see that movie. She did an amazing job as a director, absolutely amazing. Maybe I’ll ask her to direct it (laughs). We did a screening of the movie in L.A., like a preview, and I didn’t tell anyone who directed it, then afterwards I asked the focus group who they think directed it, and they said Roman Polanski or Clint Eastwood, which is “wow.” But she’s that good, and the film is that good.
What do you guys make of these plans for the franchise? When even the makers of the video game are taking the character "back to her roots" it seems like a change of direction for Lara Croft is wanted by all parties, and we could be in for a treat if the movie takes its inspiration from what we've so far seen of that particular reboot.
