The copyright holder is currently producer Graham King and his banner GK Films, who acquired the rights to “Tomb Raider” in 2011 from game publisher Square Enix. King and GK Films will be deciding what happens next with “Tomb Raider.” It’s a shame, as Misha Green has put a lot of work into a sequel she calls “Tomb Raider: Obsidian,” which was supposed to start production before the pandemic caused delays. While the 2018 movie “Tomb Raider” wasn’t a huge hit with critics or fansit still makes a decent amount of money ticket room pull.
The video game “Tomb Raider” was first brought to the screen in 2001 with Angelina Jolie starring in “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider”, and again in the 2003 sequel “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.” Twenty different “Tomb Raider” video games have been created since the original game’s release in 1996, giving any studio that won the bidding war a lot of material to dig into for a launch. their new move.
For what it’s worth, my money is from Warner Bros., who distributed the 2018 film, but this is purely personal speculation.
