Similar to the relaunch of the TOMBRAIDER video games, the reboot movie will take a similar approach.
During the interview from IGN, director Roar Uthaug wants to make Lara Croft in a much relatable character for the audience.
â€œI think making Lara Croft feel like a real human being, thatâ€™s definitely something we want to bring to the big screen as well,â€ he told IGN while promoting the Norwegian disaster pic THE WAVE. â€œI think weâ€™ll want to make people relate to Lara as a character. Iâ€™m hoping to bring some of my Norwegian sensibilities to the franchise.
The 2013 video game rebooted the series with a much younger Lara Croft as she is just learning new skills for survival rather than the 1990s series of an acrobatic archeologist.
Uthaug explained further that â€œRAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK was one of my favorite films growing up, so itâ€™s definitely a dream to work in that kind of genre. I think weâ€™ll want to make it feel like a modern action movie and to make whatâ€™s going on feel like itâ€™s going on for real.â€
Geneva Robertson-Dworet (â€˜TRANSFORMERS 5â€™) is currently writing the script.
