Alicia Vikander to Return as Lara Croft in “Tomb Raider 2”

Director Ben Wheatley (Kill List and Free Fire) has been set to direct MGM’s sequel to 2018’s Tomb Raider sequel, with Alicia Vikander set to reprise her role as the iconic video game character, Lara Croft. To be written by Amy Jump and produced by Graham King, this will be the fourth film to tackle a film adaptation of the video game, following 2001′ Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life, both starring Angelina Jolie.

Despite a lowly 52% on Rotten Tomatoes,  the 2018 version grossed $274 million globally on a $94 million budget, which was apparently enough profit to justify a sequel. The film is set to be released on March 19, 2021.
