MGM has acquired the feature film rights to TOMB RAIDER and will develop the new action adventure franchise based on the Lara Croft video game franchise in partnership with GK Films. In 2001 and 2003, Paramount Pictures made two feature films: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, starring Angelina Jolie, featuring the daredevil archaeologist on a series of global missions. The films grossed a total of $432 million worldwide.
TOMB RAIDER will center around the origins of the Lara Croft story and her daring first adventures. British archaeologist Lara Croft was born into wealth and groomed at the most elite schools. She travels to dangerous and mysterious locales around the globe in search of rare, lost crypts and long-forgotten empires. She speaks numerous languages, is highly trained for combat and answers to no one, obeying only a desire for adventure.
