Misha Green to Helm "Tomb Raider 2"

 

While no reason has been given why, it's been reported today that Ben Wheatley will no longer be directing the upcoming sequel to the Alicia Vikander-starring Tomb Raider feature that hit theaters in 2018. Instead, Misha Green will both write and direct the sequel.


Green, known as the creator of the recent HBO hit series Lovecraft Country and the upcoming series Underground, also spoke during the announcement of her favorite games in the series. She gave praise to Tomb Raider Legend from the classic era of the franchise and heaped equal praise to both Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider (The latter two of the recent rebooted series that Vikander's film was primarily based on) in the current era. If Green remains, this film will serve as her directorial debut. Stay tuned!
