I don’t think anyone saw the casting of Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander for the lead role of director Roar Uthaug’s upcoming film, Tomb Raider. Nevertheless, it happened and there’s no question she’s earned it having made her way with the 2015 sci-fi drama, Ex-Machina with subsequent roles in Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and the upcoming Jason Bourne from Paul Greengrass.
Further casting and plot details remain pending, though the word coming out as of Thursday is that the film now has a release date set for March 16, 2018. The film, based on the longstanding Edios/Square Enix video game property, hails from Warner Bros., MGM, and GK Films who are producing the project featuring a younger version of main character, daredevil explorer Lara Croft.
