Though the disparity between the number of studio jobs for female directors and male directors has been a problem for as long as anyone can remember, it hasn’t been addressed by Hollywood-at-large until very recently. Even with the hiring of Patty Jenkins — subbing in for the originally picked Michelle MacLaren — for “Wonder Woman,” a gender gap in the studio tentpole world still exists, but fortunately another blockbuster looks like it’ll have a little diversity behind the camera.

Lara Croft fans have been clamouring for another big screen instalment of the Tomb Raider franchise for over a decade now, and according to rumours, MGM and Warner Bros. are looking to enlist a female director for the proposed reboot.
According to Heroic Hollywood, a script by Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) is now out to directors, with the studio apparently seeking a filmmaker in the vein of Michelle McLaren (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad), who was recently attached to Warner Bros. Wonder Woman movie before leaving the project due to creative differences.
Now, while the idea of a female director for Tomb Raider makes complete sense, bear in mind that Heroic Hollywood is quickly replacing Latino-Review as the number one source on the internet for baseless rumour, linkbaiting speculation and fake concept art, so we should probably take this with a healthy pinch of salt. »

Earlier this week came a rumor that "Tron Legacy" and "Oblivion" director Joseph Kosinski was in early talks to direct the reboot of the "Tomb Raider" film franchise at MGM, Gk Films and Warner Bros. Pictures.
Evan Daugherty has reportedly finished the script which is currently out to directors, with the studio making a strong push to get the film moving due to their rights deal with game publisher Square Enix.
The new film is expected to be in line with the tone and feel of the 2013 video game reboot in which we follow a younger and more realistic 21-year-old version of British archaeologist Lara Croft. That game showcased how she started out as a frightened young woman »

A reboot of the film adaptation of the video game franchise Tomb Raider has been percolating since 2011, but there hasn't been any solid progress in years. Now Deadline has word that Warner Bros. is teaming with MGM and producer Graham King and his Gk Films production banner to get the project back in action. Warner Bros. will co-finance and co-produce the film in addition to handling distribution. In addition, even though Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, the duo behind scripts for films like Children of Men, Iron Man and Cowboys & Aliens, were previously hired to writer the film, a new writer has been hired.
