Originally, Tomb Raider 2 should actually be shown in theaters in March 2021, but due to the pandemic, not only the release but also the shooting had to be postponed indefinitely. Now the makers have hired a new director for the film, Misha Green, who will take over the job of Ben Wheatley. Green is known as the showrunner for Lovecraft Country.
In addition, the previous script for the film was probably completely thrown overboard. The new director will be responsible for the script for the project. Until now, it was assumed that the story of Amy Jump (Free Fire) would be written. According to information at the time, it should be an adaptation of Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The predecessor with Alicia Vikander in the lead role as Lara Croft was based on the first part of the reboot trilogy.
The 2018 film grossed over $ 275 million at the box office. When filming for Tomb Raider 2 can begin has not yet been determined. Alicia Vikander also recently commented on the situation and hopes that production can resume this year. There is no new date for the successor yet. In recent months, production studios have been forced to postpone the theatrical release of their films – including the new James Bond, Uncharted and Ghostbusters: Legacy.
