LOS ANGELES - LARA Croft is set to return in a new movie based on the 'Tomb Raider' video games but Angelina Jolie is unlikely to reprise her role as the gun-toting archeologist, reports said on Wednesday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, studio giant Warner Bros is in the early stages of developing a third film in the franchise following movies in 2001 and 2003 derived from the 1996 video game.

However the report in the entertainment industry journal said Oscar-nominated actress Jolie was unlikely to return for the role.

The new project was expected to revamp the character of Croft, the report said, with the film bearing little resemblance to the earlier movies.

The first two 'Tomb Raider' films grossed roughly US$430 million (S$645 million) worldwide. -- AFP
