MGM and Warner Bros have reportedly hired writer Amy Jump for the role. Jump is best known for Free Fire (which starred Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larsson) and a suite of other collaborations with her partner, cult UK director Ben Wheatley.
Graham King, who produced Best Picture-nominated Bohemian Rhapsody, as well as the first Tomb Raider film (which came out last year) is also returning for the project, alongside Elizabeth Cantillon, but there’s no word on a new director. The first film vaguely followed the events of 2013’s Tomb Raider videogame reboot, and its ending left the door open for a sequel, but it’s not clear whether the next film will follow in the footsteps of Lara’s latest outings on PC. Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider released in 2015 and 2018, respectively.
