Back in March GK Films, the production company behind The Tourist and The Town, acquired the feature film rights to Tomb Raider with the intention of rebooting the franchise and releasing the new film sometime in 2013.
Now according to Deadline the producers have hired Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, writers of Iron Man and Cowboys & Aliens, to write the script.
No director or studio are attached at the moment, but finding those will no doubt be the next step. Then there’s the task of finding the new Lara Croft. Angelina Jolie isn’t interested (hence the reboot) so they will have to find another actress who can carry an action film. Casting an unknown would be a good move, but they will probably be after a name. Any suggestions?
