I don't think there should be a new Lara. It worked once, but we don't need some model to convince us to buy.

A new film? they should ditch that too. Indiana Jones has done all this already, and with Uncharted now out there, doing the raiding gaming a lot better, Lara is....well.. surplus to requirements.

Nice line up of hot fems though, Spong. Kudos for the Bilson.

cosine.

Lara doesn't rate another flick, unless mebbe teh Beeb and/or SciFi channel wanted to throw one together. Outside of UK and rest of EU I just don't think the character has enough appeal for the full Hollywood treatment.

From Box Office Mojo;

LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER
Production Budget: $115 million
Worldwide: $274,703,340

LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER: THE CRADLE OF LIFE
Production Budget: $95 million
Worldwide: $156,505,388

That's about $220M profit there. Of course you have marketing expenses, licensing costs and profit shares to take into account, but you also have DVD sales balancing that lot out. Or exceeding it if you take the view that many people do in that the film is an advert for the DVD these days.

You can probably put a conservative estimate of $300M profit for Paramount on those two films.

Now consider that in Hollywood "rate another flick" isn't based on artistic merit and you'll see that there will be another Tomb Raider film, it'll probably have a lower budget and a lower overall take, but it'll make money.
