It was revealed last April that Angelina Jolie might not be as done with the role of Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider film franchise as she had previously suggested.
"Paramount has optioned [Tomb Raider III] and Angelina has agreed to star in the third," Ian Livingstone, Eidos honcho and creator of Lara Croft, told the Daily Express at the time.
Now Livingstone says the project is inching forward at the studio. "There's a possibility -- we've been talking to Paramount, who've agreed to assign a scriptwriter," Livingstone recently revealed on The Eurogamer TV Show.
He added, "That's nowhere near the green-light process but it's a very healthy start to have a scriptwriter which they're going to pay serious amounts of money to write the first script."
