New Tomb Raider Film Will Be An Origin Story
“We’re telling the story before she became Lara Croft,” says producer
Tomb Raider movie reboot producer Graham King has told Coming Soon that the film will be a Batman Begins-style origin story.
“Listen, the box office – they weren’t disasters,” he says of the previous two Angelina Jolie efforts, “but I find it interesting that the story that we’re telling is really the story before she became Lara Croft. It is a character piece. It does have a lot of really great characters, but it’s a lot of action and a lot of fun, and for me, it’s something very different. I’ve not really done a movie like that before, but I really gravitated to rebooting this franchise and we’re going to give it a shot.”
King, who has produced Martin Scorsese’s Hugo (out in the UK on 2 December), is working on the reboot with Iron Man scripters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby.
