MGM developing new 'Tomb Raider' franchise
"Tomb Raider" is getting another go on the big screen. MGM has acquired the film rights to the popular video game line and will develop the new action-adventure franchise in partnership with GK Films, both companies announced on Wednesday.
GK Films had previously acquired the rights in 2011 from interactive entertainment company Square Enix Ltd, which absorbed Eidos, the London-based video game company that created the first "Tomb Raider" game in 1996.
Great news. If they focus on the feel and look of the new one, it could potentially be very good. As much as I thought Camilla Luddington's voice acting in the game was top notch, I don't think she would work as Lara on the big screen though.
