Marti Noxon Hired to Pen New TOMB RAIDER Movie

The new 2013 Tomb Raider game reboot was met with rave reviews. While the Angelina Jolie starring original "Tomb Raider" films were considered decent and fun, news of a rebooted film franchise to coincide with the new game, is hardly surprising.

Today, it's been reported that Marti Noxon will be penning the script. Noxon's previous writing credits include the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" TV series, the "Fright Night" remake starring Colin Farrell, and "I Am Number Four". All her past projects definitely make her seem like a logical choice. The strongest definitely being "Buffy", as that character still remains one of the most badass fighting babes in pop culture history.

A quality scriptwriter is in place, so now the bigger question; who will play the new Lara Croft? She has to be both gorgeous and a believable badass. Personally I could see Adrianne Palicki from "G.I. Joe" but we'll see how this one unfolds.

Who would you like to see play the new Lara Croft? Let us know in the comments section below!

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
