Graham King, the producer of the forthcoming as yet to be titled Tomb Raider movie, has remarked that the film will be in the same vain as the next game and will tell an origins story.
“I find it interesting that the story that we’re telling is really the story before she became Lara Croft, so it is a character piece,” said King in an interview with ComingSoon.com.
“It does have a lot of really great characters, but it’s a lot of action and a lot of fun, and for me, it’s something very different. I’ve not really done a movie like that before, but I really gravitated to rebooting this franchise and we’re going to give it a shot.”
King went on to acknowledge that while the previous Tomb Raider game weren’t “disasters”, he’d like the next film to have more in common with the likes of Batman or Casino Royale.
The film will hit cinemeas in 2013. The next Tomb Raider game is expected next year.
