MGM and Warner Bros. hired Misha Green (Lovecraft Country) to replace Amy Jump (Kill List), who previously worked on the script, and Ben Wheatley (Free Fire), who was set to direct the sequel.
Misha also tweeted about the exciting news and shared that her favourite Lara-games are Tomb Raider: Legend, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Alicia Vikander will play Lara Croft once again in a continuation of the film adaptation of Tomb Raider 2013.
There's no word on a new release date due to the current changes, ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and Alicia's rumoured pregnancy.
The first movie was loosely based on the game's story, so we can only guess how much inspiration she will draw from the other games. It's entirely possible that this adventure turns into a completely new, unique story.
