Prime Video (Amazon) and dj2 Entertainment have reached an agreement to produce a Tomb Raider series that is interconnected with other projects. In this way, the objective of the streaming platform is to create a kind of Tomb Raider Cinematic Universe. And yes, we know the first details of this ambitious work that has only just begun.
Who will be Lara Croft in the Prime Video series?
Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been talked about, but she’ll have another role in the new Tomb Raider series that we will reveal below. She’s an actress, yes, but she won’t be Lara Croft in this adaptation.
In this way, dj2 Entertainment will have to look for a new Lara Croft , so the casting is open. Mind you, it doesn’t look like she’s going to be Alicia Vikander.
Who writes the script for the Tomb Raider series for Prime Video?
The person responsible for writing the script for the Tomb Raider series for Prime Video is Phoebe Waller-Bridge. She is responsible for one of the best series of recent times, Fleabag, and is known for bringing a very particular vision to all her projects. We are very curious to imagine what a Tomb Raider series created by her will be like, really.
The ambitious plans of Tomb Raider on Amazon: movie, series and video game
In addition to this Tomb Raider series written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Amazon is preparing an ambitious plan to create a Sonic-style Cinematic Universe: the streaming platform is also working on a movie about which absolutely nothing is known, and on a video game (announced in March after Crystal Dynamics regained the rights) that will also be interconnected.
In this way, the game, series and film will be the starting signal for a saga that could become Prime Video’s new goose that lays the golden eggs.
