Lara Croft reboot greenlit

No Angelina Jollie will not be in the new Tomb Raider movie, along with possibily Lara Croft:

Lin will produce the project via his Lin Pictures banner while Stephen Gilchrist will co-produce; Ian Livingstone of Eidos will exec produce. Matt Reilly is overseeing for Warners. Lin is the producer behind Warners' upcoming Guy Ritchie-directed update of "Sherlock Holmes" and the adventure film "Jonny Quest."

The new project, however, is expected to revamp the character and her mission and bear little resemblance to the original pictures. It will reimagine the origins of the character, her love interest and the main villain (Hollywood Reporter).

I find it interesting that all of my spell checkers mark the word reimagined as a misspelling because it is not a word.  Well it is a new word.  I much preferr the idea of imagining a good story, but I am sure that is too much to ask from the studios in Hollywood.

I will keep an eye on this production, but it is already on shaky ground.
