SCI, the computer games company that owns Lara Croft, along with her Tomb Raider franchise, is in talks with Paramount Pictures over licensing the property for a third Hollywood movie, according to www.thebusinessonline.com.

The previous two movies have grossed more than $450m (262m, E383m) at the box office and are based on the video game of the same name. Sources in Hollywood say negotiations have started between Paramount and SCI - who acquired rival British publisher Eidos earlier this year - for the latest movie.

Angelina Jolie has once again expressed an interest in starring as Lara Croft despite previously dismissing a third picture following domestic indifference to Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life. Chris Barrie has also registered his support to resume his role as Lara's fumbling butler Hilary.

SCI Entertainment Group is likely to negotiate a tougher deal for its property under chief executive Jane Cavanagh, who is one of Britain's most successful female executives. Eidos reportedly collected only $1 million from Paramount Pictures prior to production of Lara Croft Tomb Raider.
