The original Tomb Raider movie was a faithful if forgettable retelling of Crystal Dynamics’ franchise reboot, and it seems it was successful enough to spawn a sequel. Alicia Vikander will reprise her role as the PSone icon in a brand new big screen adventure scheduled to start filming in April 2020 ahead of a 21st March, 2021 release date.
According to Geek Vibes Nation, shooting will take place in England, Finland, and Beijing, with Ben Wheatley taking the directorial reins from the wonderfully named Roar Uthuag. The plot will apparently be based on both Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, with the script incorporating more supernatural elements than its predecessor.
More news on casting will be announced in earnest, so watch this space. In the meantime, let us know if you were a fan of the previous Tomb Raider movie in the comments section below.
