'Tomb Raider 3' set for release in 2013 sans Angelina Jolie

For those missing the adventures of Lara Croft on the big screen, you're in luck. GK Films has acquired the movie rights to the Tomb Raider series and is intent on releasing a reboot in 2013.

Rumored for years, the next unnamed Tomb Raider feature will focus on the heroine’s origins. Many actresses have been reportedly up for the role including Megan Fox (Transformers, Jennifer’s Body) (her team dismissed the rumors in 2010) and Olivia Wilde (Tron Legacy) since the previous star in the series, Angelina Jolie, has not expressed interest on returning to the role of Lara Croft.

"We are very excited to be rebooting what is already a hugely successful film franchise and continuing the Tomb Raider phenomenon," says GK Films chief and Departed producer Graham King.

The first two films in the Tomb Raider
series, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, made a worldwide gross of $430 million.

There is no official word on who will be directing Tomb Raider 3 nor its cast.
