We’ve known for some time now that Amazon is teaming up with Crystal Dynamics to publish the next major Tomb Raider game, which will reportedly be officially unveiled later this year. As it turns out, the deal may reach beyond gaming, with rumours now claiming that Amazon is making a Tomb Raider TV series.
Amazon has been looking into multiple video game adaptations. The company already has a Fallout series in the works, and there has also been some talk of a Mass Effect series. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon is now also developing a Tomb Raider show.
According to the report, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who previously worked on the comedy series ‘Fleabag’, and blockbuster films like 007: No Time to Die, is working on scripts and will be an executive producer on the project. Meanwhile, Amazon Studios’ former head of comedy and drama, Ryan Andolina, is also an executive producer.
Unfortunately, there is no official announcement at this time and we have no further details regarding casting or a release date.
KitGuru Says: It looks like we’re in for another live-action adaptation of Tomb Raider. Perhaps it will fare better as a series rather than a movie.
