Roar Uthaug, the confirmed director for the upcoming Tomb Raider film, has recently confirmed that the new movie will take great inspiration from the rebooted games of the franchise.
Roar stated in an interview with IGN:
"I think making Lara Croft feel like a real human being, that's definitely something we want to bring to the big screen as well," he said. "I think we'll want to make people relate to Lara as a character. I'm hoping to bring some of my Norwegian sensibilities to the franchise."
"I've always been a fan of strong female characters," he added, "and I think I've had strong female characters in all my previous movies, so that's something I thought was interesting."
Uthaug has been a fan of the franchise since the original game back in 1996, which is a good sign if you ask me. I cannot wait to see what he brings to the table with this new film. I'm sure it will be very interesting.
