Movie Producer: New Tomb Raider Movie a Different Kind of Origin Story
New Tomb Raider film producer Graham Kind tells Coming Soon the film will have a “very different” origin story. Different from what? Well, hold on.
Listen, the box office, they [previous Tomb Raider films] weren’t disasters but I find it interesting that the story that we’re telling is really the story before she became Lara Croft, so it is a character piece.
It does have a lot of really great characters, but it’s a lot of action and a lot of fun, and for me, it’s something very different. I’ve not really done a movie like that before, but I really gravitated to rebooting this franchise and we’re going to give it a shot.
It’s just different, then. OK, I guess I can roll with that. The film comes from the writers of Children of Men, so I have high hopes for it; maybe this will be that first great video game movie. We’ll see.
We’ll also see if it has anything to do with the new Tomb Raider reboot. Though I used a screen from that for this post, I don’t know if they’re related. I had to use something, yeah?
