Looks like fans looking forward to Tomb Raider 2 movie won’t be seeing it anytime soon, as the follow-up to the 2018 reboot film starring Alicia Vikander won’t be making its early 2021 release window and been delayed indefinitely.
According to The Wrap, MGM announced that the film was now “unset,” and was removed from the studio’s release schedule. Production for the movie was supposed to begin on early 2020 at England, but due to the global coronavirus pandemic that was moved to summer 2020 instead. Now it looks like Lara Croft’s next adventure will have to wait as a release date has yet to be finalized.
Released in 2018, “Tomb Raider” was a reboot of the film series that originally starred Angelina Jolie in the titular role and playing the part for two films. Alicia Vikander was cast as the new Lara Croft for the new movie — which in itself was inspired by the new 2013 Tomb Raider video game reboot that modernized Lara Croft and her adventures for a new age. Directed by Roar Uthaug, the film saw Lara embark on a quest to find her missing father, ending up on a mysterious island where a deeper conspiracy that led to his disappearance is revealed.
