TOMB RAIDER Reboot Script Now Completed; Inspired By RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

Producer Graham King confirms that he has now received a completed script from Iron Man screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, and drops a few hints about the inspiration and direction of the reboot.

In a role made famous by Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, the iconic video game character is once again on her way back to the big screen and work is moving ahead quickly on the reboot according to producer Graham King. Talking to Digital Spy, he confirmed that he has received a script from Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby and the hunt for a director and actress to play Lara Croft is well underway. "We're going through [the script] creatively, bringing in directors to talk to and then I get that horrible job of sitting with 25-30 young girls that want to play Lara Croft," he revealed.

When quizzed on how they're approaching this new take on the character, he added: "For me it's re-inventing the wheel a bit, it's a reboot. We're going back before she was Lara Croft, so it's a much more emotional character piece. She's in search of her parents." And as for which blockbuster has served as inspiration for the movie, it's another franchise which this year was rebooted in the form of a prequel to much critical acclaim. "One of my favourite movies of this year was Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the way they rebooted that franchise. I thought it was fantastic and took a lot away from that for Tomb Raider."
