With the recent acquisition of the rights by Amazon and the addition of renowned screenwriter Phoebe Waller-Bridge, expectations for the new Tomb Raider movie are sky high. But, everything indicates, Alicia Vikander can be left out. The actress broke her silence for the first time on the subject.
The news of Amazon's acquisition of the rights to Tomb Raider brought with it a feeling of excitement and anticipation. With its vast experience in producing quality content, Amazon has the potential to expand the Tomb Raider universe, taking fans on new adventures and further exploring the archaeological mysteries surrounding Lara Croft. This partnership could result in an even more immersive and exciting cinematic experience.
With the entry of talented screenwriter Phoebe Waller-Bridge, known for her acclaimed work on productions such as "Fleabag" and "Killing Eve", we can expect a new approach to the character of Lara Croft. Waller-Bridge is recognized for her ability to create complex characters and engaging narratives, which is sure to bring an additional layer of depth to the already iconic adventurer. His creative vision promises to surprise and delight Tomb Raider fans.
As we enter this new chapter of Tomb Raider, it's important to mention the legacy left by Alicia Vikander, who brought Lara Croft to life in the previous film, and by Angelina Jolie, in the first two. While it may come as a surprise that Vikander is left out, it opens up an opportunity to explore different nuances of the character and provide the opportunity for a talented new actress to make her mark. It's a time of transition and renewal, when fans should prepare to fall in love with a new interpretation of one of the most beloved heroines of recent times.
But why switch when Vikander did an excellent job in Tomb Raider? It is the question we ask ourselves. The actress broke her silence for the first time.
In an interview with Variety, she said: “I mean, I thought everything was going well (for the production of the sequel). We had a director and a screenwriter. For me, it was another one of those childhood dreams. Portraying an action character was incredible, and even beyond what I ever thought I would do. Also, the physical part is something I really liked. So yeah, if another opportunity like that comes along again, I'll be interested."
Once again, based on the interview, there is hope that the actress will return to the role, as there is a certain amount of interest on her part. But, unfortunately, this decision is not up to her alone.
With the combination of Amazon's vision and Phoebe Waller-Bridge's creativity, we fans are here waiting for more news. With or without Alicia Vikander.
