Previous attempts to make Lara Croft films were meritless, but now the game's had a reboot, there could be lessons learned

Now that Lara Croft – everyone's favourite 1990s, triangular-headed, uncomfortably-objectified archaeologist – has been reborn in a new Tomb Raider game, it is only a matter of time before someone decides to reinvigorate the bad old movie franchise as well. And so, with a heavy heart, I'm here to announce that a new Tomb Raider movie is already in its early stages.

According to Cvg, Crystal Dynamics is working with Gk Films to bring Croft and her inexplicable fondness for raiding tombs back to the big screen.

Anyone who's ever tried to sit through either of the previous two Tomb Raider films will no doubt feel a surge of anxiety. 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003's Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life were, without any exaggeration, completely devoid of merit. »
