Warner Bros. Getting With Lara Croft

Tomb Raider Tomb Raider

While we thought that Angelina Jolie gave the Tomb Raider franchise the best run possible on film, it is a video game adaptation after all, Warner Bros. feels like they can do better.

Warner Bros Going Forward With Tomb Raider

Warner Bros. has got to be feeling confident, as they seem to not only get projects off the other ground that other studios couldn't -- *cough*Watchmen*cough* -- but they do franchises particularly well. Paramount released two films for Tomb Raider and, now under new management, Warner Bros. is taking their shot at adapting the popular video game.

Eidos has the rights to Tomb Raider and Warner Bros. has almost a twenty percent stake in Eidos, which means that Warner Bros. also has the rights to Tomb Raider. The studio hopes to 'revamp' Lara Croft so she has little resemblance to the first two films. So I guess we shouldn't expect the return of Jolie for this one?

The film will reimagine the origins of Croft, her love interest and the main villain.

While one can only wonder who the next Lara Croft will be, Warner Bros. is first concentrating on who will write and who will direct. Once that has been established, an incredibly fun search -- think lots of photos -- for Lara will begin.
