[ May 31st 2002 ]
thoughts of a massive box-office gross - and,
no doubt, Angelina Jolie's remarkable thighs -
firmly in mind, it seems that there might be a
second outing for the Tomb Raider franchise. Details
are currently sketchy, though it appears that
Ms Jolie will reprise the role of Lara Croft in
a film that is rumoured to be more 'science-fiction-y'
that its predecessor.
Voight, Jolie's real-life and on-screen father,
has also expressed an interest in reappearing.
Rumours from Pinewood currently put Speed and
Twister director Jan de Bont in the director's
chair - though production is not set to begin
until the autumn. Best of all is the news that
Chris Barrie will once again be donning the butler's
outfit to play Hillary, Lara's fussing companion.
No word yet on if he'll be kicking bottom with
a shotgun once more - though Chris was apparently
such a hit in the first film that his role will
be much increased this time around.
being booked for two movies over the coming year
is going to keep Mr Barrie busy, it is not currently
expected to delay the release of Red Dwarf - The
Movie. Production, though, may be nudged back
to accommodate his schedule, with filming anticipated
to begin in Winter.
