Scenes for Paramount Pictures Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie sequel will be filmed in the panoramic region of Snowdonia and locations in and around Gwynedd, North Wales following a refusal by Chinese authorities to shoot on the Great Wall of China, the BBC reports today. Special effects wizards Mill Film will toil their digital trickery using advanced computer generated imagery during post production to replicate the 2,000 year-old Chinese landmark.

The North Wales Film Commission said economic benefits would be brought to the region as a result of Angelina Jolie's sharp-shooting videogame character. "Producers will use local companies and services, injecting money into the local economy." A spokensman for the Wales Screen Commission, set up in August to run alongside Wales' three regional film bodies, said "The film company is looking at about half a dozen locations in north west Wales. We are delighted they have chosen to film here and we will be working closely with them to ensure everything goes smoothly."

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.
