The Tomb Raider film just became that much more of a reality. Multiple sources have reported that Laura Croft's next motion picture will be releasing on March 16, 2018.
The reboot of the Tomb Raider film franchise stars Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander (Danish Girl, Ex Machina) as Laura. It will be in the hands of Norwegian director Roar Uthaug, best known for his well-received 2015 film The Wave. Uthaug has said that the movie will be drawing heavily on the 2013 Tomb Raider game for its story. Speaking of the story, the screenplay is being worked on by one of the writers from Transformers 5, Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
With precious little else to go on, it is nice to know that Hollywood is once again giving films based on video games a chance once again.
