It has been a while since we got any news about Tomb Raider 2 although the project was confirmed a long time ago. So what's going on with the sequel? Alicia Vikander has shared an update on the second film but it isn't very promising.
Alicia Vikander is currently promoting the HBO series Irma Vep but she also spoke to Entertainment Weekly about her other project. Interestingly, the Ex Machina star pointed out that although she and director Misha Green are ready to go, they will need to wait for Amazon's decision following the MGM acquisition.
"With the MGM and Amazon buyout, I have no clue. Now it's kind of politics," Vikander said. "I think Misha and I have been ready, so it's kind of in somebody else's hands, to be honest."
Back in March, Amazon acquired MGM and all of its upcoming projects including Tomb Raider 2. For now, the companies have not yet shared an update on their plans for the sequel.
The second Tomb Raider movie was confirmed a long time ago and was even expected to begin production back in 2019. However, things have changed due to COVID-19 and Misha Green was brought in to work on the sequel. Not surprisingly, the two have been discussing their plans for the film.
"It's so much fun on the Zooms I've had with Misha to finally sit with another woman my own age. I get to talk about big action set pieces and stunts that we want to make. I'm hoping that we get on track and get to do something together," Vikander previously said.
So far, Vikander and Green are the only names attached to Tomb Raider 2. However, Green has already started working on the screenplay and has given it the tentative title Tomb Raider: Obsidian. Hopefully, we'll get more news about the sequel soon.
