The Boobs Are Back…..
Third times a charm, apparently. Warners has announced that it has acquired the rights to the Tomb Raider franchise from Paramount and is planning to reboot the series with a new movie.
While rumours surfaced last week that Megan Fox was in line to fill Jolie’s sports bra, the project is still at a very early stage and Warners has stated that they are nowhere near casting yet, so the latest generation of fanboy geeknerds will have to make do with their weekend LARP sessions for now.
Producer Dan Lin and Warners have signalled their intention to re-invest the franchise with a new Croft that isn’t likely to go off sprouting 17 children every 3 weeks, and want to do away with the continuity already established to craft a better origin tale.
True, it worked for Batman and Superman (ish), but really, is there any point in resurrecting a franchise with the narrative depth of a Page 3 calendar?
