Tomb Raider is set to be rebooted for a third big screen outing but reportedly without Angelina Jolie.

The actress played the videogame vixen Lara Croft in the action films in 2001 and again in 2003, cementing her place as a Hollywood superstar. The two installments were made by Paramount Pictures, and now The Departed producer Graham King has acquired the rights to the franchise from Japanese videogame company Square Enix Ltd, and is planning to release a third movie in 2013.

In a press release, King states he's looking for a young Lara Croft, sparking speculation film bosses will be working on a prequel and casting a younger star in Jolie's famous role.

The statement adds, "We are very excited to be rebooting what is already a hugely successful film franchise and continuing the Tomb Raider phenomenon."

Jolie's two turns as the British archaeologist garnered box office profits of $432 million.

What do you think about "Tomb Raider" getting a reboot without Angelina Jolie?
