Back in February the rights to Tomb Raider landed at Warner Bros. with the studio tapping Divergent screenwriter Evan Daugherty to help reboot the franchise. And in July we heard rumors that WB and MGM were looking to hire a woman to direct the new Tomb Raider film — specifically that they were seeking a “Michelle MacLaren type” to fill the director’s chair. A new rumor suggests that the studios now have a shortlist of directors which unsurprisingly includes Kathryn Bigelow. Dream big, guys.
A long time ago, Catherine Hardwicke was the director of the critically acclaimed 'Thirteen.' Then she became the director of 'Twilight' and 'Red Riding Hood' and a lot of people started scratching their heads. Will 'Plush' be her triumphant return as a director to watch? Maybe. Who knows. The real story is that the gorgeous Emily Browning is in talks to join the cast.
