The new [amazon_link id=”B004FS8LYK” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Tomb Raider[/amazon_link] releasing today on Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC isn’t the only reboot of Lara Croft happening. GK Films purchased the rights to produce a new movie based on the game heroine and they are already hard at work with Crystal Dynamics on bringing Lara back to the big screen.

Crystal Dynamics studio head Darrell Gallagher talked about their relationship with GK Films and how the new Tomb Raider game is influencing the production:

“They are working from this new take that we’ve given them. It’s a good partnership. We’re seeing the challenges through the same lens.

It was important for both of us to have a cohesive version of the franchise. We didn’t want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old Tomb Raider films.”

I think we just all breathed a sigh of relief. A more, gritty version of Lara, who is still early in her development as a adventurer, should make for a much better adventure than the previous two that starred Angelina Jolie when she was still super hot and before all the stealing adoption of African children.

I will go ahead and nominate Camilla Luddington, who portrayed Lara’s digital version in the Tomb Raider game.

Yeah, I would pay ten bucks to watch her for 90 minutes. Then go see a movie with her in it.
