Crystal Dynamics is "working closely" with production studio GK Films on a third Tomb Raider movie, it's been revealed.

Speaking to Variety, Crystal Dynamics' head Darrell Gallagher revealed that the film, which has yet to be titled, will take inspiration from the studio's latest game, rather than continue where the old films left off.

"They are working from this new take that we've given them," said Gallagher of GK Films. "It's a good partnership. We're seeing the challenges through the same lens."

It isn't yet known whether actress Camilla Luddington, who plays Lara Croft in the latest game, will return for the movie.

GK Films has previously produced the Oscar-winning Argo and 3D flick Hugo.

"It was important for both of us to have a cohesive version of the franchise," Gallagher continues. "We didn't want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old 'Tomb Raider' films."

Angelina Jolie was chosen for the role of Lara in the previous two movies. The second film, however, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, was reported to have bombed at the box office, taking just under $22m in its opening weekend.

Tomb Raider launches today on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

I could do without another movie. Maybe I'm just too old to get excited about another potentially poor adaptation. There hasn't been a good Tomb Raider movie yet.

Unless BC_Animus gets the casting job.

On another note, I would much rather see these game adaptations made using CGI. I think CGI does a much better job portraying these types of stories and I can still marvel at the technical prowess of these productions. Funnily enough it just feels more natural.

Each to their own eh...

They won't let Luddington be Lara, it'll have to be some big name with no understanding or interest in the character. That's how it usually works.
