“Tomb Raider movie rights are up within the air after MGM misplaced out”
I assume there are not any extra tombs to raid… for now
Hollywood has already taken two completely different pictures on the Tomb Raider franchise, starring Angelina Jolie and Alicia Vikander respectively, however it seems to be like there’s an opportunity one other actress will get an opportunity to helm the collection, as TheWrap reviews. The movie rights to Tomb Raider are up for grabs but once more after MGM didn’t make a sequel after the 2018 movie, which might have allowed them to maintain the rights — though there have been plans to make one other movie within the collection at one level.
The more than likely consider plans for the sequel tapering off is Amazon’s acquisition of MGM again in March of this 12 months. There’s a great likelihood that with the merger happening, any initiatives within the works had been placed on pause, which is unlucky when there’s a ticking clock for sustaining your IPs. Followers had a lukewarm response concerning the 2018 film, however it did pretty effectively on the field workplace internationally, so it’s type of a disgrace that they’re not getting a second likelihood with Vikander’s model of Croft.
Tomb Raider‘s treasure-hunting counterpart Uncharted (additionally typically referred to as Dude Raider by followers) did fairly effectively within the field workplace this 12 months, raking in simply over $400 million, and securing its spot because the fourth most worthwhile online game film so far. It’s arduous to say whether or not this needed to do with its star-studded forged, which included Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, or if followers simply appreciated the film extra, however both manner, I feel it exhibits that followers are nonetheless down for an Indiana Jones-inspired motion journey.
There’s a great likelihood that we’ll be getting one other reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise from whoever picks up the rights, so right here’s hoping that the third time’s a appeal for the franchise. Till then, there’s all the time the Tomb Raider anime that Netflix nonetheless has within the works.
