Amazon wants to turn the well-known video game franchise Tomb Raider into a TV series after three film adaptations. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, an Emmy-winning showrunner, has been hired by the business to help bring the exciting world of the game to television.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, waller-Bridge will write the screenplay and serve as the series executive producer. According to reports, Waller-Bridge, producing the program as part of a renewed contract with Amazon, won’t be a cast member. Who will play Lara Croft, the treasure-hunting explorer Angelina Jolie portrayed in 2001 original and its 2003 sequel before becoming Alicia Vikander in the 2018 reboot?
Tomb Raider would join a small but growingly popular lineup of movies and TV shows available through Amazon’s Prime Video service, which already features superhero blockbusters like The Boys and Invincible and the extravagantly pricey Rings of Power, a prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Due to its limited selection of well-known original programming, Prime Video often falls behind in discussions about the “streaming wars,” with Netflix, HBO Max, and Disney Plus frequently taking the lead.
For her work on the BBC sitcom Fleabag, Waller-Bridge received several honors, including three Emmys, two Golden Globes, and a British Academy Television Award. She obtained a writing credit on the most current James Bond movie, No Time to Die, and served as the showrunner and chief writer for Killing Eve during its first season.
After many successful games on the Sony PlayStation platforms, Tomb Raider gained popularity in the 1990s. A well-liked game trilogy began in 2013 with a relaunch. Nevertheless, game developer Square Enix surrendered the Tomb Raider franchise’s rights last year; Amazon acquired them in December to publish the sequel later that year.
