The Tomb Raider
game series is undergoing a reboot
, so why not reboot the movie series as well? Eight years after the last cinematic adventure
for Lara Croft, producer Graham King and his GK Films have purchased the franchise rights. The GK blog
reports that the first new Tomb Raider
movie is being prepared for a 2013 release.
The big question here is, will the film reboot follow the style of the game reboot? All GK Films has said is that it intends to "create daring new adventures for the young and dynamic Lara Croft." The game features a younger Lara as well, but that's no guarantee the films will hew to the violent, survivalist
tone of the game.
