Reboot of ‘Tomb Raider’ series update: origin story with a lot of action and a lot of fun

Screen Rant summarizes that Oscar-nominated scribes Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man) have reportedly completed their script work for a rebooting of the Tomb Raider movie franchise, which GK Films acquired the rights to earlier this year.

The plan, at that time, was to craft a cinematic reworking of badass adventurer Lara Croft’s origins that could (fairly) quickly begin production, in order to make a 2013 release date.

Producer Graham King (the upcoming Hugo) has now provided an update on the project, talking with Collider.

“It’s something that, for me anyway, is different, you know rebooting a franchise that I didn’t produce to begin with. But there’s something about her character and going back to her roots, and that’s what we’re doing with this. You’re actually gonna meet her before she has all her powers as Lara Croft. It’s more of a character study, but it’s a really fun, fun adventure story.”

King also had the following to offer Coming Soon, on the subject:

“[The ‘Tomb Raider’ reboot] 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.”
