Tomb Raider 2 has landed a new director, as Lovecraft Country showrunner/creator Misha Green has signed on to helm and write the upcoming sequel for MGM.

Deadline is reporting that Green is set to make her feature debut with the movie, and Alicia Vikander has been confirmed to reprise the role of Lara Croft. Angelia Jolie previously played the character in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and its sequel.

Last we heard, Ben Wheatley (Rebecca, Kill List) was attached to direct, so we assume he was replaced. Whatever the case may be, there's no mention of the filmmaker in the trade's reports.

Roar Uthaug helmed the recent reboot, which was a modest hit (close to $275 million globally) despite getting mixed reviews. Tomb Raider 2 will be produced by Graham King via his GK Films banner, along with Elizabeth Cantillon via The Cantillon Company.

Production was set to commence last year prior to the pandemic forcing industry-wide delays, and the movie was recently undated. Now, it'll likely be well into 2021 before cameras start rolling.

Green is also set to write and produce Netflix's The Mother, and will work as a producer on upcoming films Cleopatra Jones and The Gilded Ones.
