Default Tomb Raider 2 in the works as MGM hires new writer

EXCLUSIVE: Get ready for another Tomb Raider with Alicia Vikander. MGM has hired Amy Jump to write the script for the sequel. Sources said Vikander liked what she was in Jumpís scripting.

She is best known for her collaborations with director and partner Ben Wheatley, who co-wrote several of them. That includes Free Fire, the action drama that starred Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy and Armie Hammer. Her other credits include the Wheatley-directed Kill List, A Field In England, Sightseers, and High-Rise. The films are cult favorites in the UK. She broadens the pool of female action writers, who are now in high demand. Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Alastair Siddons wrote the first installment. Warner Bros released the first film.

Directed by Roar Uthaug, Tomb Raider grossed $274 million worldwide, turning the Oscar-winning Swedish actress Vikander into an action heroine after a string of prestige pics and sci-fi like Ex Machina. Graham Kingís GK Films is back as producer after an exhilarating run with Bohemian Rhapsody.

Excellent news ! Hope it will accelerate after that. Is it a reach to hope the new movie in 2020/2021 ?

This is genuinely a surprise, but a really nice one! I think they can only improve where the last film left off, and Iím ecstatic Alicia is set to return. She gave one of the best Lara performances out there, period.

So, the question is: original story, game adaptation...or both?

I'm excited! Hopefully it'll be a much better origin sequel than Rise was!

I think 2021 at the earliest. BUT STILL!!!!

I don't know of anything this woman has written, but she writes for what her husband, Ben Wheatley, directs. I think we should keep our eyes on him. His films aren't popular, but they are critically reviewed pretty well. So incase he's onboard too, that could be a good sign!
