New Tomb Raider movie will ‘reboot Lara Croft’

Terminator Salvation producer Dan Lin has said that plans are in the pipeline to continue the Tomb Raider movie franchise, though emphasised the film will be a reboot of the series exploring the origins of protagonist Lara Croft.

“We’re rebooting Lara Croft…It’s a great origin story that we’re going to tell, a very character-oriented, I would say more realistic than the past Lara Croft movies…It’s not full-on action," Lim told About.com.

"I would say it’s like Terminator, it’s character driven action. For me, the Lara Croft games and movies have gone a little too action-oriented. I wanted to have action, but with character."

Finally, while not confirming anything outright, Lim made it pretty clear we won’t be seeing Angelina Jolie returning: "It is an origin story, so it is going to be a younger Lara Croft," he said.
