It looks like plans are definitely moving forward with the ‘Tomb Raider’ movie reboot.
And adding to the excitement is the fact that there is a trio of ultra talented female directors reportedly lined up for Lara Croft’s next movie adventure.
Oscar-winning ‘Hurt Locker’ director Kathryn Bigelow, ‘Twilight’ filmmaker Catherine Hardwicke and ‘Deep Impact‘s’ Mimi Leder are all on the shortlist for the blockbuster, according to Tracking Board.
‘The Walking Dead‘s’ Tricia Brock was previously said to be attached to the Warner Bros and Eidos-produced film, however the TV director passed on the chance to make the project.
Evan Daugherty of ‘Divergent’ and ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ fame is writing the script for the ‘Tomb Raider’ reboot.
Kathryn Bigelow is perhaps the most recognizable name to mainstream audiences due to her oscar winning film ‘The Hurt Locker,’ but prior to that she had done a shed load of big budget action films. Her big break was probably ‘Point Break’, which starred Keanu Reeves and the late Patrick Swayze, but since then she has done other great movies such as ‘K-19: The Widowmaker’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty’. If I were in charge of choosing a director for ‘Tomb Raider’ Bigelow would be top of my list.
Tomb Raider previously spawned two film versions with Angelina Jolie, 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003 sequel Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.
