Following the disappointment of Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life, it’s not as if anyone has particularly high expectations for a Tomb Raider reboot — it wouldn’t have to do too much to surpass the quality of the last film. But Warner Bros. and MGM are apparently working quite hard to get this one as right as possible, and a new report suggests that part of that plan includes hiring a woman to direct.
It’s been a few years since we’ve heard anything about the Tomb Raider reboot, which was first announced back in 2009. As of the last update, the project was over at MGM and a script was in the works. Now, the Tomb Raider reboot has made yet another move, as Warner Bros. has picked up the project with a brand new writer in tow, and they’re putting the movie on the “fast track.”
