‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot Hires Really Good Writers For Some Reason

Thursday, May 5 by
 

GK Films’ attempt to hunt for treasure in the long-forgotten catacombs of the Tomb Raider franchise is gaining steam. Mark Fergus and Hawk “Awesome Name” Ostby have been brought in to write the action-heavy reboot script. Best known for writing Iron Man and Cowboys & Aliens for Jon Favreau, the pair are on the rise in the world of blockbuster action films. They’ve definitely got a great track record and intriguing pedigree, so it looks as though audiences will be drooling over more than just an exposed midriff when the movie reaches theaters. To which I say, what the Hell? Why spend your budget on expensive writers and action set pieces?  We both know what the target demographic is looking for in a Lara Croft film. Something like, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Sudsy Car Wash, or, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: Oops, I Dropped This Fossil would be more in order. (Deadline)
