It looks like the recent Tomb Raider reboot treatment has rubbed off on the movie side of things as well. Variety are reporting that Crystal Dynamics are planning to reboot the film franchise following on from the positive reception the video game reboot managed to deliver:
"In a rare situation, Crystal Dynamics is working closely with GK Films to develop the actioner. Gamemakers typically just license off the film rights to a title and hope for something good at the megaplex.
“They are working from this new take that we’ve given them,” Gallagher said of GK Films. “It’s a good partnership. We’re seeing the challenges through the same lens.”
Collaboration was key for Crystal Dynamics when agreeing to partner with filmmakers.
“It was important for both of us to have a cohesive version of the franchise,” Gallagher said. “We didn’t want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old ‘Tomb Raider’ films.”
