Next Tomb Raider film to star new Lara

"It's not full-on action, it's like Terminator." 

Dan Lin, the producer of Terminator Salvation and the forthcoming Tomb Raider film, has been discussing his plans for Lara's next big screen adventure.

"It's a great origin story that we're going to tell - very character-oriented, more realistic than the past Lara Croft movies," Lin told About.com.

"It's not full-on action. It's like Terminator, it's character-driven action," he said. "For me, the Lara Croft games and movies have gone a little too action-oriented. I want it to have action, but with character."

According to Lin, it's all about "rebooting" the franchise - and that means bringing in a new actress to play Lara. No one's been cast yet, but Lin confirmed, "It is an origin story, so it is a younger Lara Croft." We vote for Tracy Beaker.
