According to The Business Online
, Paramount is in negotiations with SCI
- the gaming company that owns Tomb Raider and all of its associated
characters and whatnot - to make Tomb Raider 3
. While by now no one
should be surprised by Hollywood interest in anything video game
related, it's nevertheless a bit of a shock (to me, anyway) to hear
that Angelina Jolie
is reportedly interested in reprising her role as
the hottest video game character ever. After all, big stars seem to
prefer to get out of series while the getting is good, rather than
waiting until the almost inevitable flop to leave.
That said, though, I guess the fact that the first two installments in
the series made over $400 million means that everyone and their brother
is interested in being involved in a possible additional episode. Hell, I think I'm interested.
