Will Megan Fox play Lara Croft for Paramount?
And more importantly, are there pants-optional theaters?
Ummm... okay. That'll work.
What would really excite me is if they promised to not hire weak sauce directors and if they actually shot a really strong script. Sure, it's going to be lovely to see Fox wearing Croft's signature short shorts while doing acrobatics, but the sight of Jolie doing the same was not enough to make the first two films worthwhile. There's a chance to make really fun globe-trotting adventures using this character, and at one point, the producers for "Tomb Raider" even had a few script drafts that really worked. But Simon West destroyed that first movie and I couldn't even tell you who directed the second one. It made that little impression on me.
I'll follow up on this one next week with the producers to see if I can get a confirmation that they're even continuing the series. In the meantime, let's picture Fox in a wetsuit and enjoy the weekend, eh?
