Tomb Raider 2 adds Lovecraft Country Showrunner as director

Must read


Tomb raider 2, along with Alicia Vikander, got Lovecraft Country showrunner Misha Green as new screenwriter and director. Green will replace Ben Wheatley, who was first declared director in September 2019. Tomb Raider 2 originally had a March 2021 release date, but was recently removed from MGM’s release schedule without receiving a new date.

The news was first reported by Deadline and confirmed by Green in a post on Twitter. In her tweet, she said that 2006 Tomb Raider: Legend is her favorite “classic era” game in the series and that 2015’s Rise of the Tomb Raider is tied with 2018’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider as her. favorite in the current series.

Green is not only the showrunner behind Lovecraft Country, but also wrote every episode of the show’s first season and directed one episode. Green has yet to write or direct a feature film, but Deadline said Green recently wrote a movie, The Mother, which Netflix won after fierce competition with rival studios.It’s unclear why Wheatley is no longer involved in the project. The filmmaker got busy making a horror film during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Empire. This film is slated for release in 2021. Variety says Wheatley is also set to helm The Meg 2 with Jason Statham.

Details are slim regarding the sequel to Tomb Raider. All that is known at this point is that Vikander will reprise his role as Lara Croft from the first film.

The first Tomb Raider movie starring Vikander was released in 2018. Captain Marvel screenwriter Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Small Ax writer Alastair Siddons wrote the screenplay directed by Roar Uthaug. IGN rated the film 5.5 out of 10 in our review. We said that Tomb Raider “fails to develop any interesting characters or motifs, but at least gives viewers some fun action.”

On the other hand, Lovecraft Country has been nominated for IGN’s Best TV Series of the Year.
