MGM and Warner Bros. hired Script Pipeline writer Evan Daugherty in February 2015 to pen the new Tomb Raider film. Graham King (The DepartedArgo) producing. Instead of a sequel to the 2001 Angelina Jolie version, the new plot will feature a younger Lara Croft on her first adventure.

Evan found representation with manager/producer Jake Wagner after winning the 2008 Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition. Adaptations are nothing new for Daugherty: his resume includes recent feature releases Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Divergent, in addition to in-development TV series projects Esmeralda (ABC), Midnight Mass (NBC), The Foundation (Fox), and Five Ghosts (SyFy).
