We now know where and when the upcoming film will commence production. According to a post on casting site myentertainmentworld.com, the much-anticipated reboot of the hit video game franchise will begin next month, with filming to take place in both South Africa and the UK.
The synopsis of the film should sound familiar to those who have played the last few games in the franchise, as the film will draw on those two games for inspiration.
“Following the origins of a young Lara Croft on her first archaeological expedition she must use her strength and harness her skills in order to survive a crazed island cult and unlock mythological secrets surrounding her mysterious whereabouts”
The Film will star Alicia Vikander in the title role and Walton Goggins as the primary antagonist. Directed by Roar Uthaug based on a script from Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
The film is currently scheduled for release on March 16th 2018.
