Even though EB Games broke the street date on the console versions of Tomb Raider literally five days ago, and PC versions have been unlocked for about 24 hours, Tomb Raider actually launches today. And, already, a new movie deal has been announced.
Speaking to Variety, the head of Crystal Dynamics Darrell Gallagher confirmed the existence of a movie reboot, based around this younger, more inexperienced Lara. GK Films and Crystal Dynamics are said to be collaborating on the project.
“They are working from this new take that we’ve given them.” said Gallagher. “It’s a good partnership. We’re seeing the challenges through the same lens. It was important for both of us to have a cohesive version of the franchise. We didn’t want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old ‘Tomb Raider’ films.”
