Pinewood Studios spokeswoman Sue Darcy has confirmed to IC North Wales that Lara Croft star Angelina Jolie will arrive in North Wales within weeks to continue shooting scenes for Paramount Pictures Tomb Raider movie sequel. The former Oscar-winner, donning hot-pants and pistols for her second foray as video-game heroine Lara Croft, will film on six purpose-built sets in a disused slate quarry near Carmel. Action scenes will also be recorded in a secluded spot beneath rugged slopes beside Llyn Llyn Gwynant and in a fantastic thatched village that has been built and designed to pass for ancient China.

Sue Darcy said: "The whole unit will be coming to Wales - everyone from the director, producer, riggers, gofers and publicity people. It's directed by Jan de Bont who directed Speed and Twister. We got wonderful material there. After Wales we will be going off to Nairobi. It's so busy though. It's a case of 'It's Wednesday so it must be Wales'."

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 spokesman 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.
