Oscar winner Angelina Jolie has revealed that preliminary work is about to begin on a sequel to Paramount Pictures Lara Croft: Tomb Raider motion picture and says she will continue in her role as Core Designs British archaeologist Lara Croft.

"It looks like it's going to happen." Angelina Jolie told the Daily Record during a press interview this weekend. "They are writing another one. I am going to be Lara Croft again. If we can make it a hundred times better, if we can do a whole bunch of new things, think of a whole new sequence, get a great script with everything that nobody has ever seen before - then we will do it."

Although panned by critics across the globe, Paramounts adaptation of Core Designs phenomenally successful video game of the same name has generated over $200 million in revenue since its inception June 15th, helped considerably by a series of strategic alliances with several mainstream consumer brands competing in the studios most ambitious advertising campaign to date.

In the meantime, Angelina Jolie continues her work as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, recently returning to Cambodia - where she filmed portions of Lara Croft Tomb Raider - touring the former Khmer Rouge zones where UNHCR have concentrated their aid effort for displaced refugees who previously fled the country.
