Tomb Raider 3?

12.20.2006

Tomb Raider Ian Livingstone, current Product Acquisitions Director for juggernaut video game publisher Eidos/SCi, who's currently working on the next gen installment of the Tomb Raider game franchise, recently spoke to Eurogamer about the possibility of a third film adaptation, possibly with Angelina Jolie reprising her role as the series' famed giant-chested British adventurer Lara Croft. According to Livingstone, "There's a possibility - we've been talking to Paramount, who've agreed to assign a scriptwriter. That's nowhere near the green-light process but it's a very healthy start to have a scriptwriter which they're going to pay serious amounts of money to write the first script." Yeah, getting Jolie to return would be more wishful thinking that a genuine possibility, methinks, but why look to the past when current Lara Croft model Karima Adebibe is doing such a bang up job of representing the busty treasure hunter? Read more of what Livingstone had to say, including what we can expect from the new and improved Lara on next gen consoles, over HERE.

Extra Tidbit: As crazy as it sounds, Adebibe is the first model to actually become Lara Croft, meaning that, at promotional appearances, she speaks, rather than just poses, in character and has undergone training in combat, motorcycle riding, elocution and deportment to better play the part.

Tomb Raider Flicks Suck!

Both films are awful. The first film had me laughing my ass off when Jolie and that other guy were running up the pyramid. One of the cheesiest scenes I've ever seen in a movie. Second film had Jan De Bont behind the camera, a hack who hasn't had a good film since the first Speed, and even that film hasn't aged well.

The reason why Cradle of Life bombed, besides it being a bad film, was that there were plenty of people like me that thought the first one sucked. Sure, it made a lot of money,

The reason why Cradle of Life bombed, besides it being a bad film, was that there were plenty of people like me that thought the first one sucked. Sure, it made a lot of money, but that's because the game was a hot item when it came out. The majority of the feedback from the movie, though, was negative. But, someone thought it was a good idea to shell out $100 million for an even shittier sequel, one that I watched maybe 20 minutes of on HBO before shutting it off.

Tomb Raider 3 is an awful idea.

It could swing either way

I really like Tomb Raider 1. However, there was a DEFINITE dip in quality with Cradle of Life.

Lately, some franchises have been getting out of badness, and being brought back up to perfection (SAW, saw ii, SAW III) with their 3rd movie.

Because of this, i do have faith in a Tomb Raider 3.

Maybe it will even breathe new life into the dying game series.

Kate Beckinsale? She has small to normal boobs? She can't play Lara.
