A New Jersey pushcart manufacturer has lent further credence to the making of a third Tomb Raider motion picture during an interview with regional magazine North Jersey. Push-Cart International manufactures about 100 carts a year in factories on Van Houton Avenue in Clifton and on Long Island.

Having just produced a series of carts that will feature in the upcoming Sony pic Spiderman 3, Dave Martina says his next Hollywood venture is supplying carts for the shoot of "Tomb Raider 3'' in Argentina. "That will start whenever that Angelina Jolie thing is over,'' he said.

The previous two Tomb Raider 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 had already started between Paramount and SCI - who acquired rival British publisher Eidos earlier this year - for the latest movie.

Angelina Jolie had already expressed an interest in returning 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.
