Lara Croft is gearing up for another adventure, as a sequel to last year's Tomb Raider film is being developed by MGM and Warner Bros.
According to Deadline, the sequel will be penned by screenwriter Amy Jump, best known for her collaborations with director and husband Ben Wheatley. It has also been reported that Alicia Vikander will return to the role of Croft, and that she liked what she was in Jump's writing. Nothing about the film's story has been revealed, though the sequel will be produced by GK Films and Elizabeth Cantillon.
Released in March 2018 and loosely based on the 2013 reboot video game, Tomb Raider earned $274 million globally at the box office and brought Vikander into the world of action films. It also brought the popular character of Lara Croft back to the silver screen after a 15-year absence following 2003's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider-The Cradle of Life.
Produced by GK Films with a screenplay from Amy Jump, the Tomb Raider sequel currently has no director, planned release date or any other casting information announced outside of the return of Vikander to the role of Laura Croft.
