- According to ShowBizSpy (linked above), Hollywood is trying to persuade Angelina Jolie
to again play Lara Croft in a new Tomb Raider movie.
To quote: And, with the release of the eighth game, Tomb Raider: Underworld, due this winter, movie bosses are keen to explore the possibility of Angelina bringing the character back to the big screen.
A source says, "Lara is such a fantastic character and the games lend themselves to movies so well.
"Even though the first two movies were not very well received, there is still a lot of confidence in Lara and Tomb Raider as a franchise.
"The producers would dearly love to get Angelina back in the role and the door is being left open to her. This would be a far darker movie with a lot more emphasis on storyline."
