Almost everyone forgot about the Tomb Raider reboot. With all these properties getting sequels and adaptations is easy get drown in that tsunami of reports and being forgotten. Finally, Warner Bros. is moving forward with the new Tomb Raider movie, and the project has locked a screenwriter.
In June 2013, MGM and the produced Graham King hired Marti Loxon, who has worked previously in Buffy the Vampire Slayer to write the movie. However, the news stopped and the project quickly went quick until now where we have two updates about the video game adaptation: Warner Bros. has signed on to produce the film alongside King’s GK Films and MGM. And the second one was mentioned previously, Tomb Raider has a screenwriter.
Snow White and the Huntsman and Divergent writer Evan Daugherty has been set to script the Tomb Raider reboot. The report published by Deadline didn’t mention that Marti Loxon will do some contribution. Evan Daugherty other credits include movies such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and G.I. Joe 3. It’s hard to trust in the scribe right now, but let’s just hope to get a good director to helm the project.
The reboot will be a different take in the characters just like in the new video games which features a younger Lara Croft completing her first missions. Who should be the next Tomb Raider? My eyes say Victoria Justice for some odd reason or Mila Kunis, if she can sign a multi-picture deal. Who knows? I forgot this reboot and haven’t sit down to think who will play Lara Croft in the future.
