Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge is writing a new Tomb Raider series for Amazon Prime
Get ready to loot some tombs on Amazon Prime
On January 27, 2023, Amazon Prime announced that it is currently developing a brand new show centered on Lara Croft. The new Tomb Raider series comes from the critically acclaimed mind of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, best known for her excellent work on the dark comedy Fleabag.
This brand new series is said to be in the very early stages of development, with Waller-Bridge writing, who currently has a deal with Amazon to produce content for it. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Phoebe Waller-Bridge has no plans to be cast in the series at the moment, so we don’t yet know who will play the signature character.
While Phoebe Waller-Bridge is perhaps best known for Fleabag, she’s no stranger to the action-adventure genre, having served as showrunner on the first series of Killing Eve and contributing to the script of No Time to Die. She was also a voice for a droid in the Star Wars franchise while currently also starring opposite Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and Dial of Destiny.
When it comes to live-action, Tomb Raider has yet to do a series, but there is an anime set to release on Netflix sometime in 2023. Still, there have been a few live-action movies that feature Angelina Jolie and Alicia Vikander playing Lara Croft at different times.
Unfortunately, given that the new Tomb Raider adaptation is still in the development stages, fans will have to wait a while before they can see it when it debuts on Amazon Prime.
