“Tomb Raider” is getting another remake from none other than “Fleabag” writer and actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Waller-Bridge will work behind the camera as a screenwriter and executive producer. Unlike his predecessors, the ‘No Time To Die’ actor’s upcoming project won’t be a movie (which fans have grown accustomed to over the years), but rather an Amazon series. Originally based on the famous video game franchise of the same name, “Tomb Raider” reached new heights and gained popularity in 2001 after Angelina Jolie took on the role of protagonist Lara Croft in “Lara Croft : Tomb Raider”.
Since the success of the video game and the first movie, the Tomb Raider franchise has inspired numerous adaptations, including a sequel starring Jolie, an updated solo movie starring Alicia Vikander, and multiple video games. Before Waller-Bridge hits the headlines for his involvement in the new adaptation of the beloved franchise, here’s everything we know about the upcoming “Tomb Raider” series.
Plot of the series “Tomb Raider”
Although Waller-Bridge has yet to comment on exact plot details, the “Tomb Raider” series will likely be inspired by the plot of the original video game and follow the storyline of the films that followed it. “Tomb Raider” follows antiquities collector and archaeologist Lara Croft, who embarks on a series of thrilling yet dangerous adventures to collect rare ancient treasures from locations around the world. In his latest “mission”, Croft is in search of two pieces of a mysterious ancient artifact that has the ability to control the weather, which, if left in the wrong hands, can dismantle life on earth for ever. Well.
Cast of the series “Tomb Raider”
The cast of “Tomb Raider” has yet to be announced. As more information is released, expect to see cast cast for main characters like Lara Croft and Lord Richard Croft, among others. One thing we do know is that while Waller-Bridge is a fantastic actress herself, she is not scheduled to appear on the show at this time.
Tomb Raider series release date
As Waller-Bridge’s “Tomb Raider” series is in the early stages of development, there is currently no release date for the series. Since the series hasn’t started filming, expect to wait a bit before a release date is announced.
