A Tomb Raider reboot is on the fast track with a trio of female directors reportedly lined up for Lara Croft's next movie adventure.

Oscar-winning Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow, Twilight filmmaker Catherine Hardwicke and Deep Impact's Mimi Leder are all on the shortlist for the blockbuster, according to Tracking Board.

The Walking Dead's Tricia Brock was previously said to be attached to the Warner Bros and Eidos-produced film, however the TV director passed on the chance to make the project.

Evan Daugherty of Divergent and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame is writing the script for the Tomb Raider reboot.
