[ August 24th 2002 ]

Angelina Jolie and her entourage touched down at Kamari airport on the sun-drenched Aegean Sea island of Santorini early yesterday morning to begin shooting scenes for Paramount Pictures Tomb Raider movie sequel. Jolie will begin a Jet Ski and scuba-diving training program before meeting with director Jan de Bont to finalise a series of underwater scenes. Her Lear jet landed in the early hours and a limo whisked both Jolie and son Maddox to the hotel "Vedema" at Megalohori. The Lara Croft star will negotiate with several stunt doubles while on the island.

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. British tabloid newspaper The Sun also reports that producers are searching the coastal regions of Caernarfon in Wales after Chinese authorities refused permission to film on the Great Wall of China. The production team will then relocate to Africa to continue shooting.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life chronicles the adventures of British aristocrat 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. The movie opens with an explosive underwater action scene involving a desperate struggle for a sacred ancient spear guarded by Chen Lo's evil henchmen and a mission to overthrow new villain Reiss from deploying an army of biological drones to wreak havoc on the world.
