Fair warning from the outset that this is little more than he said-she said gossip, especially when one considers how seriously busy Angelina Jolie is these days, but someone somewhere is pretty confident that a third Tomb Raider movie is about to get underway -- despite the fact that Lara Croft: Tomb Raider was a piece of poop and that Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life was a two-poop sandwich with a side order of poop sauce.

Sorry for getting all graphic, but both Tomb Raider movies really piss me off. The producers had a shot at creating a female version of Indiana Jones, and all they ended up with was a female version of, like, poop. Aside from Ms. Jolie's stunningly appealing presence and a small handful of nifty action scenes, the Tomb Raider movies stunk to high heaven ... at least if it's me you're asking reading.

So yeah: ComingSoon.net pointed me towards a site called EuroGamer.com, and it was there that Eidos game-master Ian Livingstone expressed much enthusiasm for the fact that Paramount recently "assigned" a screenwriter to a third Tomb Raider flick. (Ian, buddy, just worry about the games. Most of those are just fine; let the movie thing die gracefully.) No mention is made of who the Tomb Raider 3 screenwriter might be, but I'm guessing it's probably those darned Wibberleys.
