TOMB RAIDER Sequel Writer-Director Misha Green Reveals "Unapproved" Title: OBSIDIAN

TOMB RAIDER Sequel Writer-Director Misha Green Reveals "Unapproved" Title: OBSIDIAN

We recently learned that MGM's planned Tomb Raider sequel had landed a new director in Misha Green, and the Lovecraft Country creator has now taken to Twitter to tease the (unapproved) title...

It looks like the title of the upcoming Tomb Raider sequel will be Tomb Raider: Obsidian.

Writer-director Misha Green took to Twitter to announce that the first draft of the script is complete, and while she pointed out that Obsidian is not the "approved" title (yet), it's probably only a matter of time before it's made official.

Does this title tell us anything about the plot? Well, Lara Croft does encounter obsidian collectibles and the like in the games (a blade is an important artefact in Shadow of the Tomb Raider), but nothing specific really comes to mind.

Green, the creator/showrunner behind HBO's acclaimed Lovecraft Country, is set to make her feature debut with the sequel, and Alicia Vikander has been confirmed to reprise the role of Lara Croft. Angelina Jolie previously played the character in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and its sequel.

Ben Wheatley (Rebecca, Kill List) was attached to direct, but evidently parted ways with the project.

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.
