The Tomb Raider franchise has been out of the movie business for near ten years now, which is about the aging time it takes before Hollywood looks at a property and tries to recycle it for lack of new ideas. With the recent release of a popular new title in the Tomb Raider video game series, it looks like this reboot may finally be coming to fruition.
GK Films, the company that grabbed the film rights up in 2011, will be joining forces with MGM to create a new Tomb Raider for a new generation. And the old generation too, of course, since we’re still around and haven’t really aged that much since the last flick.
Sorry folks, but there’s no info on what to expect and certainly no names attached to the project yet. We can only warn you that it is coming.
Thanks to /film for the warning.
