Dan Lin, producer of the Warner Bros’ re-imagining of Lara Croft’s origin, has shared some new details on the Hollywood reboot of Tomb Raider. Speaking to About during the ‘black carpet’ premiere of Terminator: Salvation, Lin confirmed that the movie is indeed in the works. “We’re rebooting Lara Croft as well. Really excited – it’s a great origin story that we’re going to tell. A very character-oriented I would say more realistic than the past Lara Croft movies.”

Since the movie will feature an origins story, the Terminator producer said that it will feature “a younger Lara Croft.” No actress, however, has been cast yet for the iconic role, according to Lin. He also emphasized that the reboot will focus on Lara’s character, likening it to Terminator: Salvation: “I would say it’s like Terminator – character-driven action. I think for me the Lara Croft games and movies have gone a little too action-oriented. I wanted to have action, but with character.”

We’ll definitely have more on the Hollywood reboot as new details come in. Be sure to keep it here on Tomb Raider Fanboy.
