Tomb Raider Movie Taking the New Game as Inspiration
Written Tuesday, March 05, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Launching globally today, Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider reboot is to be the inspiration for a new Tomb Raider movie, featuring a younger Lara Croft learning to become a survivor. It'll take movie reboots like Batman Begins and Casino Royale as a template.
The new Tomb Raider movie will be coming from GK Films, who have produced movies like Rango and The Departed, and will be working closely with Crystal Dynamics during the film's production. It'll be a whole new take and won't continue where the old Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider movies left off.
“They are working from this new take that we’ve given them. It’s a good partnership. We’re seeing the challenges through the same lens,” Crystal Dynamics' boss Darrell Gallagher said of the collaboration with GK Films. “It was important for both of us to have a cohesive version of the franchise. We didn’t want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old ‘Tomb Raider’ films.”
