Alicia Vikander is returning for a Tomb Raider movie sequel

Ben Wheatley, the British filmmaker who's made a name for himself with incredibly dark movies like Kill List and A Field in England, will direct the sequel, with his producing partner Amy Jump writing the script.

"I've grown up loving these kinds of films and I've always wondered what it's like to create these big stunts, sequences and action adventures". Not that we question whether he can do it, it just seems to go against the brand that we have come to love since his feature film debut in 2009, Down Terrace. Either way anything from the proven dynamic duo is welcome from us here at Screen Anarchy. The previous Tomb Raider film earned $275 million worldwide, and it was a modest hit for MGM. Alicia Vikander is reprising her role as the lissome, treasure-hunting action heroine Lara Croft. Currently, his latest film Rebecca is in post-production.

A Hollywood break was just waiting in the wings for Wheatley, who has been earning acclaim in his home country of the United Kingdom since 2009, and Tomb Raider might just be it. Production on the film starts early next year. In the movie, Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen.

It's nearly a similar sequence which the ISRO is going to implement, with practically no real-time controls on the ground. The rover carries two payloads to enhance the understanding of the lunar surface.

Vikander first took the helm of the film franchise a year ago in Tomb Raider, which was directed by Roar Uthaug and grossed $275 million.

The 2018 Tomb Raider was Hollywood's second attempt to adapt the beloved video game franchise after the Angelina Jolie films from 2001 and 2003.
