Deadline is reporting that Iron Man screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby have been brought aboard by GK films to write the script for the reboot of the Lara Croft, Tomb Raider film series.
Says Deadline, "The real obstacle for this reboot is overcoming the fact that the ideal actress for the Lara Croft franchise is the one who played her in the first place. Female-driven action films have proven to be something of a dead zone in most cases. Besides Jolie, few actresses have been successful as action heroes, with Kate Beckinsale doing business in the Underworld series and Mila Jovovich in the Resident Evil films. Beyond getting a strong script and filmmaker, GK’s challenge will be combing the list of up and coming actresses to find the next Jolie."
