Lara Croft is dusting off her boots, but they won't be worn by the original adventurer.
EW reports that Graham King, best known for producing "The Departed" and "The Town," has purchased, through his production company, GK Films, the film rights to the video game series "Tomb Raider" and its iconic gun-toting leading lady, Lara Croft.
Those rights were once held by Paramount, who made two smash hit movies based on the game, carried by a young and kick-ass Angelina Jolie. She starred in 2001's "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" and 2003's "Lara Craft: Tomb Raider — The Cradle of Life." The films, which helped boost Jolie's rising star, made $274,703,340 and $156,505,388 worldwide, respectively, though the second film was a disappointment in domestic theaters.
