What would happen if Iron Man and Lara Craft from Tomb Raider hooked up?
We might get some idea according to the latest news concerning the Tomb Raider reboot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, the duo who wrote 2008's Iron Man, have been hired to write a new Tomb Raider movie. The two also worked on Children of Men (earning a screenplay Oscar nomination) and co-wrote this summer's Cowboys and Aliens.
The company that bought the rights to the famous video game series plans to reboot the franchise with a 2013 release. In a statement, GK Films want to create an "origin story for Lara Croft that solidifies her place alongside Ellen Ripley and Sarah Connor in the pantheon of great female action heroes."
Though no casting news has been made, it's very unlikely that Angelina Jolie (who starred in the 2001 movie and it's less than successful sequel) would suit up again in those short shorts and return as Croft so it's anyone's guess who will replace her.
