Driver is Lara Croft

Who’s the new Tomb Raider? If the headline didn’t give it away you better read the rest.Minnie Driver will be the voice of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider ReVisoned a new animated series from GameTap. The series will be available free at GameTap from July 10. A new episode will be made available every week till August 23.

The first three-part instalment will be helmed by Peter Chung, the creator of Aeon Flux. With following instalments involving creative talents such as Peter Chung, Jim Lee, Warren Ellis, Cully Hamner, Gail Simone, David Alvarez, Michael Stackpole, Brian Pulido, and Christos Gage. I’m personally looking forward to the Jim Lee and Warren Ellis instalments.

"World-famous writers and artists are each doing their own version of Lara Croft, telling a different story the way they see the character," said Ricardo Sanchez, from GameTap. Find an interview with Sanchez about the project here.

Presumably, the announcement of Driver was delayed to generate additional hype before the launch on Tuesday, otherwise Driver will be very busy this weekend (chuckle…no one else? Ok.). Watch the trailer below.
