Live-Action Tomb Raider Series Officially Ordered by Amazon Prime Video 1

We kind of already knew about this, thanks to a report from last year, but now it's all official. Amazon Prime Video has greenlit a live-action Tomb Raider TV series, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge attached as writer and executive producer. Here's the official post on the Tomb Raider site.

Waller-Bridge is an actor and writer best known for her work on Fleabag, Killing Eve, and No Time to Die. She's on board to pen the script for Lara's new show, and will executive produce alongside Jenny Robbins, Crystal Dynamics, Dmitri M. Johnson through dj2 Entertainment, Michael Scheel, and Legendary Television.

It seems she's a fan of the franchise in her comments on the order. "If I could tell my teenage self that this was happening, I think she’d explode," Waller-Bridge says. "Tomb Raider has been a huge part of my life and I feel incredibly privileged to be bringing it to television with such passionate collaborators. Lara means a lot to me, as she does to many, and I can’t wait to go on this adventure. Bats ‘n all."

Of course, Amazon's collaboration with Tomb Raider doesn't end here. We also know Amazon Games will be publishing Crystal Dynamics' next major Tomb Raider game, a "single-player, narrative-driven action-adventure". Rumour has it the game will be set in an open-world India.
