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.
Jolie has once again expressed an interest
in starring as Lara Croft despite previously dismissing

also registered his support to resume his role
as Lara's fumbling butler Hilary.
