The bit about Core and Eidos having copies - I mean, maybe he sent it in...but I doubt it. Lying on the internet was WAY easier in those early days. I paged through the script a bit...the first page did not encourage me to read at length.
Thank you for sparking a little hope inside me. This canít be an official script (hopefully)

Gary says that Eidos has his script in his possession. I'm not so sure it was a just a fan script ...

Also, be it a real script or just a fanfiction of an influential person ... the script is really true to the old biography and the character of Lara Croft. I wish in 2001 Simon West would have taken this story as a reference and not the garbage he made.

Yeah that was probably a bit far.
Sorry.

I prefer the Scion to a movie where Lara's Dad is a member of the Illuminati. This script is actually very good in my opinion. I'm just sad that it isn't complete.

Just finished. My god that was a bore to read. To be fair, scripts can be deceiving. Perhaps it would have worked better in action. Kinda glad it's just fan fiction/got rejected.

Read it up to Natla's introduction. As of now, this script's only redeemable feature is that it is actually inspired by the games and original bio besides of "rich sexy British adventurer"...

Everything else though, good lord:
  • Unless it is brought up later, the Himalayan part is completely useless and adds nothing to the plot (the script should have started with Egypt)
  • "Hero was bullied during their teens" is not a cliche that fits Lara at all. Even if "nerdy", Lara should be somehow well liked.
  • How in hell is "Lucky Lara" being used as an insult? And are we really supposed to believe those teen girls in an "All-girls" school that is able to organise trips to the Himalayas don't also come from pretty rich families?
  • This whole segment is just an excuse for "Lara has a neat scar in her arm that may or may not be from a Yeti", isn't it?
  • Weeks (Edit: weeds, lol xD ) is way too annoying, even if he seems to be there for like five minutes
  • Using her looks and sex appeal to her advantage is very un-Lara and I hated that part in the squad because of it.
  • Showing that Natla is evil by ordering a "reduced to just a goon" Pierre to kill that Archaeologist is too cliche as well.
  • Also, are we also to believe that Natla prefers to go first for prestigious archaeologists that people absolutely would notice if they were all killed or disappeared after having meetings with her, instead of directly going for hiring illegal treasure hunters that would more easily be "disposed off" if needed?

If the rest of the script is as good as what I read, then even the first Jolie movie makes more sense then it. And sure, it's was probably a first draft, but I don't really see a good movie coming out from this, even after polishing the script.

But but, its the best script someíve read and we all must like it. If not, well.... weíre a disgrace to the Tomb Raider franchise.....

I agree with all of your points. This uninspired TR1 rip-off script is filled with cliches and unnecessary drama. Even the worst stain that ever happened to the franchise (Jolieís first movie) is better than this... thing.
