Lara Croft is set to appear on the big screen once again in the new reboot: Tomb Raider 3
The new Tomb Raider 3 movie will follow the video game reboot ‘Tomb Raider’ and the 2nd instalment to some extent ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’. This means we will have fresh storylines and a new perspective on Lara Croft – from her early years.
For the director it will be the original Tomb Raider movie director…no other than Simon West. Simon West has reportedly been signed on for Tomb Raider 3 and has big plans to create something of a blockbuster phenomenon like the James Bond franchise.
Just like the shootout scene in the mansion with Lara Croft (Angelia Jolie) taking on a small army of radicals. Since Angelina Jolie is moving onto directing her own movies and being an ambassador. She won’t be taking part in the 3rd movie instalment of Tomb Raider.
Instead the beautiful and saucy Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly playing the leading role of Lara Croft. If The Hunger Games track record is anything to go by…then director Simon West can’t go wrong by casting a young and fresh Jennifer Lawrence to play the lead role of Lara Croft. The girl can act!
Tomb Raider 3 is on schedule to be released before 2018 and the movies storyline is still being written by the storyline writers – so the movie could easily go off track from the video games storyline.
