It seems as if Crystal Dynamics’ fantastic reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise has been more than critically successful. At GDC last week, studio head Darrell Gallagher revealed the game has sold an impressive 3.4 million units, a new sales record for the franchise. With this success, the planning of a film adaptation has (unsurprisingly) begun.
Crystal Dynamics will be working with Graham King’s GK Films on a reboot of the film franchise after MGM purchased the rights. “The enthusiasm over the recent game release is very encouraging and we can’t wait to bring it to the big screen.” King said. Like the video game, the film will follow a younger Lara in her formative years.
