SYNOPSIS: Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.

Wu will be playing a character named ‘Lu Ren’, “a ship captain who partners with Croft on a quest to find her father.”
The reboot will raid theaters on March 16th, 2018.
UDPATE: Looks like a new ‘Lara Croft’ have been found. Oscar winner ALICIA VIKANDER (The Danish Girl, Ex Machina) have landed the leading role in THE TOMB RAIDER!
As you can see, the resemblance is definitely there.
Vikander can next be seen alongside Matt Damon in JASON BOURNE this Summer.
UPDATE: Warner Bros. and MGM is considering ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ star DAISY RIDLEY to headline the new TOMB RAIDER reboot!
Nothing is finalized. Ridley is simply on the shortlist of actresses being considered to portray ‘Lara Croft’. The reboot is set to be directed by Norwegian filmmaker ROAR UTHAUG (The Wave).
Stay tuned for more updates!
MGM have found a partner in WARNER BROS. PICTURES for the upcoming TOMB RAIDER reboot and a writer have been announced!
EVAN DAUGHERTY, a screenwriter best known for ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’, ‘Divergent’, ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’ and the upcoming ‘G.I. Joe 3’ will be on-board for ‘Tomb Raider’.
The first two ‘Tomb Raider’ films, which saw Angelina Jolie starring as ‘Lara Croft’, raked in a very profitable $432 million worldwide back in 2001 and 2003.
With the reboot focusing on a younger ‘Lara Croft’ going on her first adventure, who do you think the studios should cast? Leave your comments below!
Alicia is very petite, very well trained as a former ballet dancer, and very suitable for the role IMO. I can’t really understand her choice of movie though, but it seems like it’s very trendy with action movies now. I think her best movie is “Testament of Youth”. I recommend everybody to watch that one. There she really shows what a good actress she is. For you who don’t know Alicia, I can tell you that she’s actually Swedish, and it seems like the producer of the new “Tomb Raider”, Roar Uthaug is Norwegian. “The Wave” is an all Norwegian movie with Norwegian actors and language, and also filmed in the beautiful country of Norway. You could say that this is a Scandinavian/American/Chinese cooperation then, since Daniel has his ancestry in China. I’m looking forward to seeing this movie with the lovely Alicia from my home country Sweden. I’m also fortunate to have Norway as my home country as well, since I’ve lived there almost half of my life.
