Tomb Raider Movie and TV Series Reportedly in the Works on Amazon

It looks like Amazon is betting heavily on Tomb Raider.

Alongside the recent news that the next Tomb Raider game is being worked on and released, new reports state that the company also has plans for a film and TV series based on globetrotter and gun-wielding Lara Croft.

Waller-Bridge will reportedly co-run the show with former comedy and drama director Ryan Andolina and former overall director Amanda Greenblatt.

Dmitri M. Johnson is said to be part of this production through his company dj2 Entertainment. If that name sounds familiar, Johnson has also expressed a desire to adapt games like Life is Strange and Disco Elysium for Amazon.

In addition to this TV show, sources have said The Hollywood Reporter Johnson has struck a deal with Amazon to make a Tomb Raider film.

As a reminder, last year MGM lost the rights to the Tomb Raider films after the company was bought by Amazon. At the time, insiders said it all meant that the planned 2018 film sequel was all but scrapped and Alicia Vikander (who played Lara Croft) was removed from the project.

It was then claimed that all future Tomb Raider films would be a “complete reboot”.

Amazon is now reportedly looking to build a “connected world of Tomb Raider,” something described by The Hollywood Reporter as “similar to what Marvel has already achieved.”

This deal between Johnson and the streaming service is reportedly “among Amazon’s biggest commitments after Lord of the Rings.”

Eurogamer has reached out to Amazon for further comment.
