Warner Preparing Another Tomb Raider Movie

By Chris Faylor, Jan 28, 2009 1:25pm PST It's been six years since the second Angelina Jolie-starring Tomb Raider flick hit theaters, and Warner Bros. wants to give the franchise another chance at the box office.

Details are scarce at the moment, but The Hollywood Reporter writes that the film "will reimagine the origins of the character, her love interest and the main villain" and "bear little resemblance to the [Paramount-produced] original pictures."

Ian Livingstone of Eidos, which publishes the busty action-adventure video game series, will serve as executive producer. Dan Lin of "Sherlock Holmes" will produce.

No writer or director are attached, nor is an actress that would assume the role of Lara Croft. Though rumors suggest Transformers star Megan Fox might take up the mantle, What They Play reports that Fox's spokesperson has denied her involvement.
