According to The Glorias star Alicia Vikander, cameras will start rolling on Tomb Raider 2 at some point next year — but it's subject to change, as the ongoing pandemic makes predicting the future virtually impossible.
"The plan was for us to start making one [movie based on Tomb Raider] this year, but of course due to the [pandemic] situation that's now very different," Vikander told Good Morning America during a recent interview. "We're still in discussions about it, so I hope that we can probably get to it next year."
Production on Tomb Raider 2 may have been delayed, but it seems that Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, Free Fire) is still attached to direct the follow-up. As a reminder, the first flick was helmed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave).
Although we know next to nothing about Tomb Raider 2, rumour has it that it will be influenced by Crystal Dynamics' Rise of the Tomb Raider and Eidos Montreal's Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Apparently, the film — which definitely won't debut on March 19 — will incorporate more supernatural elements than the original.
It's worth remembering that Tomb Raider 2 is not the only video game movie Warner Bros. is working on, as Simon McQuoid's Mortal Kombat reboot — which has thankfully finished filming — releases on January 15.
