Tomb Raider 2 is an upcoming American action-adventure film directed by Ben Wheatley and is sequel to the 2018 film Tomb Raider.

Production[edit]

In 2015, Adrian Askarieh, producer of the Hitman films, stated that he hoped to oversee a shared universe of Square Enix films with Just Cause, Hitman, Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, and Thief, but admitted that he does not have the rights to Tomb Raider.[1]

Prior to the release of the first film, Alicia Vikander expressed interest in returning as Lara Croft for a second film, stating that "If there's an audience out there for it, then I would love to".[2] In April 2019, Amy Jump was hired to write a script for a possible sequel, with Vikander attached.[3] In September 2019, Ben Wheatley, Jump's husband, signed on to direct the sequel, with a planned March 19, 2021 release date, with Warner Bros. Pictures dropping out of the project.[4] That same month, it was confirmed that Wheatley's long-time cinematographer Laurie Rose would also work on the film.[5]

Filming[edit]

According to Geek Vibes Nation, principal photography was scheduled to start in April with filming taking place across a number of countries including England, South Africa, Finland and China and looking to deliver a faithful adaptation of the games' story. The movie will allegedly be embracing more of the supernatural elements and tones that gamers have connected with.[6] Production was delayed until sometime in the summer of 2020, with filming now taking place in England and South Africa, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[7]

Release[edit]

Tomb Raider 2 is scheduled to be released on March 19, 2021.[4]
