[ September 27th 2002 ]

Angelina Jolie and her entourage have concluded shooting scenes for The Cradle Of Life: Tomb Raider 2 in six locations in and around Snowdonia, a region of North Wales, a spokesman for the production confirmed to the Daily Post today. Welsh Culture Minister Jenny Randerson thanked the 27-year-old Oscar-winner for her visit and promised further assembly backing for the film industry. "Film productions like this not only benefit the local economy, but also have longer term benefits that derive from Wales being seen on cinema and television screens all over the world," Mrs Randerson said.

Scenes involving more than 150 cast and production crew members were shot at Pen-y-Pass, near Snowdonia, and at a disused slate quarry near Carmel. Angelina Jolie and co will leave the prestigious Seiont Manor Hotel in Wales for production HQ Pinewood Studios later today where crew members are currently assembling monstrous sets for the Jan De Bont helmed motion picture. The production team are scheduled to fly to Kenya on Monday morning to continue filming before heading to Hong Kong's panoramic Victoria Harbour.

Tomb Raider 2 spokeswoman Sue D'Arcy said: "Angelina will be having a rest from filming although she will be having her usual physical training at a specially made gym at Pinewood." Commenting on the Hollywood superstar performing her own stunts, Ms D'Arcy said: "In Greece she was suspended upside down and deliberately fell dozens of feet with a camera dropping by the side of her. If she does her own stunts it means her leading man cannot wimp out!"

The North Wales Film Commission said economic benefits had been brought to the region as a result of Jolie's sharp-shooting videogame character. "Producers used 60 local companies and services - including caterers, hoteliers, and restaurateurs - injecting money into the economy. The Assembly government will be looking to provide further support through the establishment of a Film Fund for Wales, which will contribute to the growth of the film sector in Wales.

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.
