Here’s something to rejoice–or lament–about.

Following rumors of Megan Fox as the next Lara Croft and Rhona Mitra turning down any more Lara Croft roles, The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Warner Bros. IS indeed bringing back Lara to the big screen.

Executive producer of upcoming film Terminator Salvation Dan Lin is attached as the new Raider film’s producer. Lin has also been involved in films such as 10,000 B.C. (studio executive) and the The Aviator (producer). Other names attached to the project are Ian Livingstone of Eidos (executive producer), Stephen Gilchrist (co-producer), and Matt Reilly (Warner Bros. supervisor).

WB’s additional purchase of 10 million shares in Eidos last December has earned them the rights to the next Tomb Raider film. Paramount Picture’s contract had apparently expired before then.

A new directive for the movie might be a little controversial though, as WB is setting to “revamp the character,” “re-imagine Lara’s origins, her love interest and the main villain.”

With no director and Lara Croft actress attached as of yet, the third Raider movie seems still far off the horizon. But you have here a raise of hand for any form of big Hollywood Tomb Raider production. Let’s just hope it’s done right.

More on this as it develops, if it does. Which it will. (Hopefully.)
