Dan Lin Talks “Tomb Raider” Reboot

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.
