[ August 6th 2002 ]

Blue Tulip Productions, a Santa Monica-based film and television company nestled within the 20th Century Fox movie empire, is to add Paramount Pictures Tomb Raider movie sequel to its ongoing résumé. The Lara Croft video-game adaptation, which began shooting at London's Pinewood Studios in July, is helmed by Speed director and Blue Tulip boss Jan de Bont who will orchestrate Angelina Jolie and Chris Barrie in the second of three Tomb Raider motion pictures. Blue Tulip's recent accolades include Speed 2, Minority Report and Twister.

Tomb Raider II, tentatively named The Cradle Of Life [working title], chronicles the adventures of British aristocrat Lara Croft who is 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. The original Simon West-helmed video-game adaptation garnered more than $230 million in revenue worldwide, coining $48 million during its domestic opening weekend and remains the highest ever box-office earner for a female-driven movie.
