While we're on the topic, sure, we're a long way from a movie based on the "Tomb Raider" reboot -- heck, the new game isn't even out yet. But with all this talk of a colorful character overhaul, it's hard not to start fantasizing about a younger, more convincing successor to Angelina Jolie as the iron-willed video game icon Lara Croft. Here are seven starlets who could possibly wield those dual pistols.
The former "Oc" star's got a lot of heat thanks to her innocent turn in "Tron: Legacy," but could she survive way, way off the grid?
She came off a bit clueless as a Bond girl in "Quantum of Solace," but faired a little better as an action heroine in "Prince of Persia," another video game adaptation. Bonus points for being authentically British.
Judging from the art we've seen from the new game, »

The Toronto Star is reporting that Pinewood Toronto Studios has secured around $35 million to help the facility attract big-budget movies to be shot in Toronto. And the studio has just secured the biggest movie ever to be shot in Toronto, which happens to be the remake of "Total Recall" that has a price tag of $200 million. It is set to begin filming in March with Colin Farrell in the role made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1990 original. The new remake, to be directed by Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard, Underworld), is based on a story by Philip K. Dick about a victim of mind-tampering who buys a dream vacation from a company that sells implanted memories and winds up on Mars, fighting a demented despot. »
You're about to get Paul Verhoeven's and Philip K. Dick's story Total Recall remade for you wholesale, and it will happen up in Toronto. According to The Star, the production will begin shooting in March at Ontario's Pinewood studio, reportedly with a whopping budget of $200 million (unknown if that's Canadian or Us -- both pretty close in value at the moment, yeah?). Columbia has Len Wiseman (Live Free Or Die Hard, Underworld) heading up the head trip, and last we heard, Colin Farrell was »

Tj White, CEO of T-Minus Productions, has attached Nick Jacobs to direct the film Company Man, a project Jacobs also penned. This marks the second collaboration between Jacobs and the film company, as they are in active development on Fight Schlub, a romantic comedy set in the world of Mma (mixed martial arts.)
Company Man is a comedy about two rival office slackers forced to work together to outsmart a corporate efficiency expert before the two men are found out and fired — problem is, the person on their trail is a beautiful woman that one of them falls for.

If you thought Bruce Willis riding a harrier jet in Live Free Or Die Hard was awesome instead of completely ridiculous, boy have I got a movie for you. It's the feature film adaptation of the video game Just Cause and the majority of it is spent blowing inordinate amounts of things up, grapple-hooking soldiers to propane tanks and surfing on top of fighter jets. But L+E Pictures' Adrian Askarieh and Eric Eisner say the film, despite its absurdity, is going to stay grounded in reality, and »

Rumors began flying around this morning that "Die Hard 5," the long chatted up sequel to "Live Free Or Die Hard," would be gearing up to shoot next year in Puerto Rico, L.A., New York and Vancouver. The news originated from a report in the Puerto Rican newspaper Primera Hora, who quoted someone named Gustavo Rivera Aparicio who apparently works 20th Century Fox's PR department, so we reached out to the studio to see if we could dig up any more info. And it looks like "Die Hard 5" is isn't quite ready to go in front of cameras. According… »

Hollywoodnews.com: Yippee kai yay, mother … well, you get the idea.
A fifth “Die Hard” film has been rumored for some time now, with Bruce Willis going so far as to admit during interviews for “Red” that he’s excited about jumping back into the role of super-cop John McClane for what should be the final installment in the action franchise. After eliminating “exceptional” thieves, military conspirators, revenge-seeking thugs, and cyber-terrorists, Willis has suggested that the next “Die Hard” would have to step up its game and take the threat to a global level. Because McClane has saved buildings, airports and cities. The evolution of the game has to put the planet at stake, right?
Well, a story breaking today at Latino Review suggests that they’ll be filming “Die Hard 5” in an exotic international locale, at the very least.

Is the Snake really coming back?
There has long been talk that New Line is working on a remake of John Carpenter's "Escape From New York," based on a script from Allan Leob ("Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps"). Rumored directors have included everyone from Brett Ratner to Len Wiseman ("Live Free or Die Hard"), with the job finally going to Breck Eisner ("The Crazies"). Dudes like Gerard Butler and Josh Brolin, meanwhile, have had their names tossed around as leading men potentially game to take over the Snake Plissken role from Kurt Russell. So far, though: no Snake.
The latest Snake-in-waiting, according to Internet scuttlebutt, is Jeremy Renner. Web reports earlier this month suggested the Oscar-nominated "Hurt Locker" star was close to being in talks for the role. But according to Renner, that's simply not the case.
"No, there's no truth to that," he told MTV News recently.

New York - News Corp.'s Fox Filmed Entertainment has extended its long-standing co-financing agreement with hedge fund Dune Capital Management, according to the New York Post.
The new arrangement, which follows a deal that was set to expire over the summer, will extend the Fox-Dune relationship for at least another couple of years, with the financial firm set to finance about 35 percent of the production costs of all Fox films, according to the Post. The paper didn't detail the total amount of dollars Dune will invest.
The two have been partners in multi-picture funding deals since 2005, with films covered including the likes of Avatar, Live Free or Die Hard and The Devil Wears Prada. While other Wall Street-Hollywood collaborations have led to mixed results, this partnership is considered successful. »

Director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) and Eddie Murphy have been busy shooting Tower Heist outside the Trump International Hotel in Manhattan, which has provided Ratner countless opportunities to re-pester Murphy about suiting up in Axel Foley’s trademark blue jeans and Lions jacket for a fourth Beverly Hills Cop flick. The project has been in development limbo since 2008, and the most recent tidbit came in ’09 when it broke that a screenplay titled Dying Day from scribes Michael Brandt and Derek Haas (Wanted) would be retooled as an Axel Foley adventure. Nothing of note has surfaced since, most likely because Eddie Murphy is far less optimistic about a fourth go-around as Foley than Ratner is. Hit the jump for comments from Ratner regarding the project and the embedded MTV News interview.
When asked about the progress on Beverly Hills Cop 4, Ratner told MTV News:
“Oh yeah, believe me, I’m all over it. »

Colin Farrell has won the Arnold Schwarzenegger role in Columbia Pictures' remake of Total Recall. He beat out Inception's Tom Hardy and Jonah Hex' Michael Fassbender. The movie is based on the futuristic Phillip K. Dick short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" where a man's memories and reality have been tampered with. The subject matter is from the same well of ink that Inception and Vanilla Sky draw from except that Dick's story involves a secret agent and has the potential to be a true action film.
