MGM to reboot TOMB RAIDER!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. It shouldn't be a surprise to those of us who have played the latest Tomb Raider game that Hollywood is going to want to follow suit and reboot their film franchise. I personally loved the new Tomb Raider and since David O. Russell's Uncharted movie ain't happening, why not try to make a new film franchise out of one of the most recognizable female characters this side of Zelda?
GK Films has had the rights for a few years and now they're teaming up with MGM to make the reboot happen. Properties like Tomb Raider are exactly why the reboot should exist. The Jan DeBont and Simon West films from the early aughts cast the perfect person in the perfect outfit at the perfect time, but were so sloppily scripted, shot and edited that they became the definition of mediocre.
Here's the big secret: just make the movie fun. Give it real stakes, make the journey seem impossible, but no matter what keep it fun. That's the Raiders formula and it works, damn it!
If I were a betting man, I'd wager that MGM is going to very liberally lift from the new Tomb Raider game, give us the origins of Lara Croft and slowly introduce us to some of the supernatural stuff behind her adventures. IF they are, then Miss Croft is going to be in for a rough shoot.
We have a studio that's serious, now they need to hire a director that's serious and find a writer that can hit that balance in tone I blabbed about above. Oh, then they have to cast Lara Croft. Again.
