A New Lara Croft Anointed

2008-08-18

Maybe it's all that quadrennial interest in gymnastics stirred up by the Summer Olympics. Eidos announced recently that it has picked Alison Carroll, a 23-year-old gymnast from Croydon, as the model for Tomb Raider: Underworld, the next installment in the popular computer-game franchise. She is being touted as the first Lara who just might be able to perform some of her own stunts without any CGI enhancement. Can a movie deal be far behind? —Mr. Movietimes Movie News Bureau)
