Phoebe Waller-Bridge has already amassed quite an impressive acting resume, writing on ‘Killing Eve’ and ‘No Time to Die’, as well as ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ and ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate’ . “For her, Lara Croft is the next natural step. “The opportunity to have, as we were talking about earlier, a female action character. […] Having worked on Bond and having worked as an actor on Indy, I feel like I’ve built that,” she told Vanity Fair. “What if I could take the reins of an action franchise , with everything I’ve learned, with a character that I love, and also bring back a bit of that 90s vibe? »
This new series is the franchise’s third live-action adaptation, following popular films starring Angelina Jolie and the 2018 film starring Alicia Vikander. “There’s room to do something really, really dangerous. And if I can do something dangerous and exciting with ‘Tomb Raider,’ I already have an audience of people who love Lara and hopefully that it will continue,” Waller-Bridge said. “And that’s a very unusual position. It’s the old Trojan horse.” However, the “Tomb Raider” series is currently on hiatus as the Writers Guild of America (WGA) continues to strike until a fair deal is offered by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). and accepted by the WGA. If all goes well, the “Tomb Raider” series will be the start of a potential universe spanning series, movies and games. Pending the actions of the AMPTP, of course.
While it might seem trivial to care what Phoebe Waller-Bridge has to say about a fictional character’s bust, it’s perhaps the most obvious sign that she’s the perfect designer for the job. .
