Square Enix is releasing Crystal Dynamics' new Tomb Raider game today for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the PC. The game explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor.

But what is the status of the movie reboot? Variety says Crystal Dynamics is working closely with GK Films to develop the film that will also focus on the younger Lara Croft.

"They are working from this new take that we've given them," Darrell Gallagher, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics, said of GK Films. "It's a good partnership. We're seeing the challenges through the same lens."

He added that "It was important for both of us to have a cohesive version of the franchise. We didn't want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old 'Tomb Raider' films."

Producer Graham King previously told us that the new film will be "the story before she became Lara Croft, so it is a character piece. It does have a lot of really great characters, but it's a lot of action and a lot of fun, and for me, it's something very different. I've not really done a movie like that before, but I really gravitated to rebooting this franchise and we're going to give it a shot."

Starring Angelina Jolie, Paramount Pictures made two movies based on the daredevil archaeologist on a series of global missions in 2001 and 2003. They grossed a total of $432 million at the worldwide box office.

Who do you think should play the younger Lara Croft in the movie?
