At this week’s premiere of “Terminator Salvation”, Producer Dan Lin talked briefly about the upcoming reboot of the “Tomb Raider” film franchise to About.com
“It’s a great origin story that we’re going to tell. A very character-oriented story. I would say more realistic than the past Lara Croft movies…I would say it’s like Terminator – character-driven action. I think for me the Lara Croft games and movies have gone a little too action-oriented. I wanted to have action, but with character” says Lin.
In other words the film is going back to the beginning with a more grounded and emotional tone ala “Batman Begins” or “Casino Royale” in order to try and re-establish the brand. At last rumor Megan Fox was up for the role of Lara Croft.
