The Norwegian filmmaker said that his intention is to see that the viewers relate to the Lara Croft character as much as possible, Entertainment Weekly Reported.
I think making Lara Croft feel like a real human being, that’s definitely something we want to bring to the big screen as well. “I think we’ll want to make people relate to Lara as a character. I’m hoping to bring some of my Norwegian sensibilities to the franchise,” Uthaug said.
2013 is the year when the game was rebooted and brought onboard a yonger Lara Croft. Rise of the Tomb Raider followed Tomb Raider in which the character was depicted as a gritty heroine.
He said that ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ was one of his favorite films when he was growing up. His purpose is to turn it into a modern-action-movie-like so that it can come out as being a real feeling.
