The Tomb Raider games are ones that I’ve grown up with. I remember playing them on the original PlayStation, only to recently find myself still engaged with the series after picking up the latest title for Xbox One.
The film series hasn’t had nearly as much success, with Angelina Jolie‘s series being considered middle-of-the-road action at best.
That’s fine and dandy, because it looks like Lara Croft will be coming back, only this time with Alicia Vikander as the shorty shorts wearing tomb raider.
She’s an interesting choice that will raise lots of eyebrows in terms of where this new series will be going. Interesting actors being attached to video game properties is always a good thing, because it means that said talent believes enough either in the script or the character to give it a go.
I mean Michael Fassbender is currently working on an Assassin’s Creed movie, so there’s that.
I’m looking forward to finding out more information about the film.
Are you excited about the casting?
