Paramount Pictures begins filming Tomb Raider.
Tomb Raider: The Movie (tentative title) has now started its filming. Paramount Pictures who will distribute and promote the movie hopes to overcome the "videogame-to-movie curse". Mortal Kombat was decent, Street Fighter was a disaster and Mario was just awful. Let's hope that Simon West (Director/Writer) and Angelina Jolie (Lara Croft) make a great duo and pull off a worthy videogame based movie to watch. Tomb Raider: The Movie is expected to be released in Summer 2001.
