trained actor Iain Glen, cast as the villainous
Manfred Powell in Paramount Pictures Tomb Raider
movie, admits to ignorance at having never heard
of Tomb Raider before Simon West cast the Scottish
actor in the role of Lara's adversary.
I was asked to do the film I did not know the
Tomb Raider game," he admitted. "I suppose I am
out of the age group when it became terribly popular.
But people have come into this film from all sorts
of different angles. There are those who are very
aware of the game and others, like myself, who
arenít. It was good and quite healthy to analyse
this script purely from a feature film point of
screen conversion of Eidos Interactive's phenomenally
successful computer game is scheduled for a June
15th debut across the U.S., but is not expected
to premier in the UK until July.
