Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider films were met with either derision or apathy from most movie fans – which is perhaps why the next Lara Croft movie adventure is going for a complete system reboot.

GK Films have just acquired the feature film rights to the Tomb Raider video game, and producer Graham King ( The Departed ) is planning on retooling the franchise.
