Crystal Dynamics and GK Films announced today that the larger Tomb Raider brand reboot will encompass a new feature film. GK Films (The Town, The Tourist, Rango) has acquired the rights from Square Enix to translate Tomb Raider for the big-screen, and is aiming for a 2013 release for “the first film.”

The movie will be produced by Graham King and Tim Headington and “create daring new adventures for the young and dynamic Lara Croft.”

“We are very excited to be rebooting what is already a hugely successful film franchise and continuing the Tomb Raider phenomenon,” said King.

Paramount Pictures released two previous Tomb Raider movies, both starring Academy Award-winning Angelina Jolie. The 2001 and 2003 films grossed $432 million worldwide. A lead actress has not been attached to the film as of yet.
