In January, it was revealed that a new Tomb Raider movie was in development. Not a sequel but a complete reboot of the series. About.com was able to catch up with producer Dan Lin and find out a little more about the project. Lin reveals that the film will be a “very character orientated” origin story, which hopes to take a “more realistic” tone than past Tomb raider movies.I guess this means we won’t be seeing Lara punching any sharks this time around.
He also says it will be a younger Lara Croft, which has some sites assuming that he means teenage. Megan Fox had been the subject of Internet rumors surrounding the project earlier this year. And while casting has yet to begin (it still sounds like they’re in the story development phase), who knows?
