Tomb Raider reboot extended to the silver screen
With the Tomb Raider franchise being rebooted it seems that the movie aspect of Tomb Raider will also see a reboot. MGM has acquired the film rights to Tomb Raider and production has already began in partnership with GK Films.
MGM and GK intend to make multiple movies based off of the Tomb Raider franchise with production of the first film already underway, although no announcements have been made for casting. These films however will not be a continuation or have an relation to the Tomb Raider movies previously released in 2001 and 2003. and Crystal Dynamics, the developer of Tomb Raider will be working closely with MGM and GK rather than simply selling them a license for the rights. This should make for a better story line and more accurate movie experience.
