Tomb Raider Film Development Beginning Immediately

A new deal has been reached by MGM and GK Films to produce a film based on the new Tomb Raider reboot. Both companies are putting Tomb Raider on the fast track.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news this week, with GK Films stating production would begin immediately. There hasn’t been anyone cast as the new Lara, and there is currently no director attached to the film based on Square Enix’s and Crystal Dynamics’ refresh of the action series.

A new Tomb Raider movie would be the third in the franchise, though it will clearly be a different animal from the Angelina Jolie films of the early 2000s. Fortunately, women have had a bit of an action movie renaissance as of late, and there are plenty of viable candidates out there to fill Lara’s shoes.

While current voice and mocap actress Camilla Luddington could certainly fit the bill, she’s not really a known quantity to carry a film franchise. Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters) has the chops, but she may avoid more video game movies after the Prince of Persia disaster. Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) could almost definitely put on some cargo pants and get the job done, but would HBO’s fantasy epic take up too much of her time?

Who would you like to see take on the role of Lara in a new film adaptation?
