Video game adaptations to film for the most part for gamers feel to be though very appreciated for the series’ growth to the silver screen are mediocre for the majority of films and fail to deliver the same effect the initial game introduced. Among the continuous push from Hollywood to bring more titles to the theaters, most of the films that release continue to fuel the stigma that these movies cannot actually be decent.
Last year, Warner Bros. and MGM brought Alicia Vikander with Walton Goggins for a film reboot of Square Enix’s Tomb Raider which is more apparent to adapting the game series’ 2013 reboot. Though the movie just like every other game-translated motion picture received below average reception in reviews, the film has been praised to be one of the better game-to-film adaptations as of yet from consumer reviews.
Now according to Deadline, both MGM and Warner Bros. have already nabbed Free Fire’s Amy Jump as the writer for the succeeding film. The entertainment outlet’s sources shared that Jump showed the script to Vikander who really liked what she saw. Implying that the star of the film will most likely be returning to play her role as Lara Croft.
As it is already pretty evident that the film followed the first game in the reboot as we’ve already shared, it’s easy to see the upcoming sequel will be following the same route by adapting the follow-up title, Rise of the Tomb Raider. An expected time for when production for the film will begin has not been mentioned as of writing this.
