Tomb Raider 2 gets release date and director

September 4th, 2019 by Marc Comments

While the general vibe around Alicia Vikander’s take on Tomb Raider seemed to be one of general indifference, I actually quite enjoyed it and, as such, would be happy to see a sequel.

And it seems that’ s happening.

Swopping out the more fantastic elements of the Angelina Jolie movies and even the games, Vikander’s Lara Croft was a little more real-world, taking the hits like the best of them and it made her a more relatable, grounded hero.

And now Kill List and Free Fire director Ben Wheatley has signed on to direct the second movie from a script by Amy Jump with March 19th 2021 penned in as the release date for it.

The movie is set to begin filming early next year.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
