Who's excited for the Tomb Raider reboot? The feisty Lara Croft is one of the most badass, and most famous video game characters of all time. Although the game is still hugely popular, it's been 12 years since the character last appeared in cinemas. It's about time that a reboot has been planned, and I hope that it will be done well. There has been some news dropped on the development of this film by Tracking Board and it all sounds pretty exciting. Check out the details below, followed by my fan-cast of 5 potential Lara's for the movie.
The tomb of secrets has been unlocked and rumors are gushing out about who the director could be.
It was rumored before that Tricia Brock, who has directed everything from The Walking Dead to Girls was going to fill the directors chair. However, sources told Tracking Board that the director officially passed on the project.
Tracking Board revealed that the potential directors have been narrowed down to three, Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), and Mimi Leder (The Leftovers).
What we know so far.
The reboot is being produced by Warner Bros., MGM, GK Films and Eidos Interactive.
Evan Daugherty (Divergent, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) is writing a new script and it'll be based on Lara Croft’s first, ill-fated archaeological expedition.
Lara Croft is almost back in action, but who will fill the shoes and fit in to the short shorts? Fan-cast time!
Sources say that Angelina won't be stepping back into her old costume so here are a few of my potential choices:
This actresses is incredibly badass in the Transformers movies and really knows how to run away from danger!
Tomb Raider needs an actress who can handle physical demands for fast-paced action sequences. Alexandra really proved herself by being totally awesome in San Andreas . The actress also has the looks and curves nailed for the role.
You may be thinking, well they don't look one bit alike. But, there is a reason for me fan-casting Camilla. This actress probably knows Lara better than any of the other actresses on my list. Camilla supplied the vocal and motion performances for the famous heroine in the most recent Tomb Raider video game.
This actress proved that she can handle the physical endurance for the reboot when she starred in Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters. Gemma also showed off her epic fighting skills in Clash of the Titans.
Tatiana is absolutely incredible in Orphan Black. In this series she showed just how versatile she is with playing a wide range of characters. She is totally badass in the series and as this actress is pretty up-and-coming it would be awesome to see her being given the chance of being Lara.
