While the "Lara Croft" film franchise fizzled out with movie two in 2003, there are still fanboys (and girls) aplenty gaming away as the Tomb Raider on whatever archaeological adventures the femme's gotten herself into now, so MGM wants a turn trying to make the double-pistol-fister a go for the big screen.
And they've brought in a big gun, so to speak, to script their franchise excavation.
The studio has hired "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" writer-alum Marti Noxon to revive the mummified story, per Variety, and while details on the story are still as unknown as the location for that blimey Holy Grail, it is expected that the film'll follow Ms. Croft on another of her international adventures ... because obviously.
Moxon is best known for her writing and producing work on TV's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," so she's got some considerable experience grappling with rough-and-tough female protagonists alright.
