Tomb Raider 2 Is Happening with Alicia Vikander Returning as Lara Croft?
Alicia Vikander allegedly signed for the next Tomb Raider 2 . MGM and Warner Bros. hired Amy Jump to write the sequel and Vikander would have liked what she saw from Jump's work so far. Jump previously "adapted High-Rise for the actor Tom Hiddleston and co-wrote Free Fire with Ben Wheatley." We do not know how it will be at this point, but we should know this soon because the studio is planning it.
While the plot of Tomb Raider 2 is hidden, the first installment took a lot of the prequel video game series, so we think the following will pull of the same source material. Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Alastair Siddons wrote the first film after a story by Evan Daugherty and Robertson-Dworet, which earned $ 274.7 million worldwide, turning Alicia Vikander into a star of great notoriety. Roar Uthaug directed Tomb Raider but we do not know if he will come back as the studio decided to do it with a new author, who should give him a new tone.
Tomb Raider received mixed criticism from critics at the time of its publication last year. The performance of Alicia Vikander in the role of Lara Croft has proved to be a source of division. Some fans of the franchise were impressed by what she brought to the role and by the fact that she was able to take on a role made famous by Angelina Jolie. However, there were others who thought his performance was falling flat and was not as good as the previous installments. Whatever the case may be, the film was a lot of box office.
Tomb Raider was in development for a number of years before finally being released in theaters in recent years. GK Films first acquired the rights to carry out the project in 2011 and Roar Uthaug signed for the realization in 2015. Alicia Vikander was announced new Lara Croft the following year. It was believed The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi Star Daisy Ridley was going to play Croft, but the actress spoke later and called it a crazy rumor. Production began in January 2017 and was completed in June.
There are many places Tomb Raider 2 can go, so it will be interesting to see where Amy Jump decides to take the franchise next. The script for the first film was taken directly from the first of the Square Enix video games, so we could see the next game in the series being the basis of the sequel. Or, the studio could throw a huge curved ball. Anyway, the fans who enjoyed the first opus will be excited to hear Alicia Vikander come back to play Lara Croft again. The new Tomb Raider 2 was reported for the first time by Deadline.
