[ August 1st 2002 ]

According to reports in today's Greek press, Angelina Jolie will shoot scenes from Paramount Pictures Tomb Raider movie sequel on the sun-drenched Aegean Sea island of Santorini. Filming is scheduled to begin Aug 26-31 at the northern-most point of the island in the small costal town of Ia. Producers will also tout for 100 extras to star alongside Jolie as she records a series of underwater sequences depicting the discovery of a submerged temple containing an inventory of Alexander The Greats' prized possessions.

Santorini, one of the most beautiful and mysterious of the Greek islands, is a complex of overlapping basalt and andesite shield rock formations enclosing volcanic beaches wrought from an eruption that occurred 3.500 years ago. The eruption was one of the largest in the last 10,000 years and purged seven cubic miles of rhyodacite magma from Mother Earth out onto the coastline.

Tomb Raider II, tentatively named The Cradle Of Life [working title], will also shoot on location in China and Africa with Speed director Jan de Bont helming the Lara Croft franchise vehicle. Former Oscar winner Angelina Jolie returns as buxom British gunslinger Lara Croft sent on a perilous mission to rescue the world from the exploits of an evil Chinese crime syndicate led by oriental crime lord Chen Lo.
