Tomb Raider Film Reboot Targets Oct 2017?

Earlier this week came word that Warner Bros. Pictures had set aside an October 6th 2017 release date for an “untitled event film”.

Today, Heroic Hollywood reports that their sources have indicated that the film is the “Tomb Raider” reboot in the works, and it is currently going by the name “The Tomb Raider”.

Additionally, Warners registered the domain a month ago today. At last report Daisy Ridley was one of several names under consideration for the role of the new Lara Croft. The actress is currently shooting “Star Wars: Episode VIII” which will continue for a few months yet.

Roar Uthaug is helming the new “Tomb Raider” which will stick to the mold of the 2013 game reboot and its 2015 sequel which follow the earlier days of Lara Croft and has a much more gritty and human tone to its story of the daredevil archaeologist.
