Graham King (The Town, The Departed, The Tourist, I’m sensing a pattern here) has acquired the film rights to Square Enix game “Tomb Raider” with plans to reboot the franchise in multiple films with his company GK Films.
“Daring new adventures” is Hollywood code for “boobs and more boobs”. “Young and dynamic” is code for “barely legal. Also boobs.” The first film in the series is set to raid theaters* in 2013, which we’re guessing will be proceeded by a porn parody inevitably titled This Ain’t Tomb Raider XXX. What, are they too fancy to call it Womb Raider 2013?
* Balloons are falling from the ceiling and the Mayor of the Internet walks into the room to inform me I’m the one millionth blogger to say Tomb Raider is “raiding theaters”. Yay, I won a souvenir punch in the face.
