Tomb Raider (Amazon Prime) W: Waller-Bridge

Pretty good talent behind this. Hopefully they can do this some justice. Could be their next "Jack Ryan" with worldwide location shoots.

Edit: If a mod sees this, can you change it from Amazon TV to Amazon Prime? Thanks!

Itíll be interesting is they really do try to pass the torch to her in the next Indiana Jones movie. Tomb Raider is awful similar. Itís about as close to Indiana Jones as you can get without actually being Indiana Jones.

Edit: It looks like sheís just going to write the script for TR and not actually star.

Sounds awesome to me. The game franchise is one of my favorites but none of the movies appealed to me. With the right casting and approach, I'd be down for another crack at it.

She's obviously not Lara Croft, but she could still play a role.

Itís too bad the reboot movie with Alicia Vikander from a while back didnít do better. I actually kind of liked it and enjoyed her in the role. A series could be good though too.

I think the question we all want to have answered is, will this version of Lara Croft have big ass cans?

I liked Vikander in the role, and I really enjoyed the game it was based on (the 2013 reboot), but I was disappointed in the movie. It left out some cool things from the game.

I will check this out, though, hoping for the best.

Re: Tomb Raider (Amazon Prime) W: Waller-Bridge

Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s adaptation of video game Tomb Raider is scaling the walls at Amazon.

The streamer has handed the project a series order.

The news was revealed by Head of Amazon & MGM Studios Jen Salke at the company’s Upfront event in New York, who called it an “epic” and “globe-trotting” series.

“If I could tell my teenage self this was happening I think she’d explode. Tomb Raider has been a huge part of my life and I feel incredibly privileged to be bringing it to television with such passionate collaborators. Lara Croft means a lot to me, as she does to many, and I can’t wait to go on this adventure. Bats ‘n all,” said Waller-Bridge.

I like Vikander but I still think it was bad casting. Now watch my complaining backfire when they pick Zendaya.
