I didn’t fully believe the story that they were rebooting the Tomb Raider franchise the first time I read it, but it’s refusing to go away. STOP INVADING MY CONSCIOUSNESS, TOMB RAIDER REBOOT! DON’T MAKE ME DRINK YOU AWAY LIKE MY FEELINGS OF INADEQUACY!
Producer Dan Lin stopped to chat with About.com about some of his upcoming projects, particularly the planned reboot of the “Lara Croft” series (popularly known as an adaptation of the “Tomb Raider” series of video games [‘popularly known’ because that’s what they called the effing movies. –Ed.]). Lin describes the project as a “character-oriented… more realistic” origin story for the popular treasure seeker. He clarifies shortly after that, comparing what he intends to be “character-driven action” in the “Croft” reboot to what audiences saw in last weekend’s “Terminator Salvation.”
As fans of the video game series are already no doubt aware, Lara Croft has quite a well-developed backstory which has been introduced in the more recent games. I’m not going to be the guy who spoils it all [heaven forbid], but the last two releases in the series go into considerable details on Lara’s relationship with her parents and the circumstances which led her to owning Croft Manor.

Well I certainly hope we can expect more of the same. Because every time I see a stripper with huge tits dressed like Indiana Jones, my first question is, “No, really, Jade, tell me more about your relationship with your father.”
