Word on the street is the next Tomb Raider movie will be a prequel in which Lara Croft's origin story is revealed. Producer Dan Lin is all kinds of excited for the next movie, saying this one will be "more realistic" than past movies. He continued, "I would say it's like Terminator — character-driven action. I think for me the Lara Croft games and movies have gone a little too action-oriented. I wanted to have action, but with character." And Angelina Jolie will not be reprising her role, since the origin story will require a young Lara Croft.
There were some mixed feelings about this project initially, but now that it sounds like it'll be a different take on the role (so, not a straight remake of stuff Jolie's already done), are you any more sold on it? What young actress do you think could step into the butt-kicking boots of a younger Lara Croft?
