It was announced: the movie based on the reboot of Tomb Raider will have a sequel in theaters. However, it seems that it is no longer too topical.
The movie Tomb Raider was rather well received at the box office with its recipe of more than 250 million dollars. However, this is a far cry from what two other successful adaptations have achieved: Uncharted and Sonic, each weighing some 400 million dollars each. In short, the transposition made by Roar Uthaug has been confirmed for a sequel, which will now be directed by Misha Green.
A project that is behind schedule
However, this new opus remains for the moment of the order of the hypothetical since it is not without meeting some problems. Alicia Vikanderthe interpreter of our famous Lara Croft, has indeed told Entertainment Weekly that with the purchase of the historical MGM (James Bond, Stargate …) by Amazonthe planned film is a bit dead weight. However, this does not mean that it is abandoned. The realization that has already suffered a setback because of Covid will take more time before being published.
Whatever the case, Vikander, is looking forward to working with Masha Green. Now she’s just waiting for the green light for both of them to put into pictures what Vikander is “eager to show the world.”.
With the MGM and Amazon buyout, I have no idea. Now it’s kind of political. I think Misha and I were ready, so it’s kind of in someone else’s hands, to be honest. I was excited to show the world. I love what she did with Lovecraft Country.
Regarding the video game field, we recall that the saga will have a new opus under Unreal Engine 5. It was announced before the acquisition of Square Enix by Embracer. Moreover, at the time of the acquisition, the latter announced its intention to dedicate several new projects for the licenses then falling into its lap (Tomb Raider, Deus Ex).
