Tomb Raider 2 Shoot Is Heading to England with Alicia Vikander

The Tomb Raider 2 fires, at least in part, in England. In September, we learned with some surprise that MGM took seriously the sequel and announced the release date, as well as the confirmation of Ben Wheatley ( Free Fire ) to lead with Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander ( Ex-Machina ) returns as Lara Croft. Things are going very fast now: the shooting should start next year and the studio starts to lock the scene. At least one important place will be in England.

The film is expected to be shot in Waner Bros Studios. Leavesden, where the first production took place.

It is only recently that this tide has really started to turn. Ben Wheatley will work from a screenplay written by Amy Jump ( High Rise Kill List}). Wheatley and Jump have worked together many times in the past and their collaborations have generally been praised. This bodes well for this project. Tomb Raider 2 should be released in theaters on March 19, 2021. We will keep you posted as soon as further details become available. This news comes to us via HN Entertainment.
