‘Justified’ star Walton Goggins cast as ‘Tomb Raider’ villain

The Tomb Raider reboot has settled on a villain to oppose the  young Lara Croft, played by Oscar winner Alicia Vikander with Justified star Walton Goggins.

Variety broke the news as the new film will be from director Roar Uthaug (The Wave) and a script from Geneva Robertson-Dworet (the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons reboot).

“WB recently announced the pic would be released on March 16, 2018 with Norwegian director Roar Uthaug helming. Goggins would play the antagonist in the film,” Variety reported.

Fans can expected the new Tomb Raider to be inspired from the most recent video games, making Goggins a rival archaeologist or corrupt billionaire looking to scoop up some lost treasure.

 

The Tomb Raider from 2013 saw Lara traveling to the mysterious island of Yamatai, where she encountered a cult looking to awaken a goddess through a ritual sacrifice.

In the more recent game Rise of the Tomb Raider, she had a more expected adversary: a paramilitary organization in Siberia trying to beat her in the search for the legendary city of Kitezh and reach its promise of immortality.

Paramount’s two films starring Angelina Jolie as the British archaeologist were released in 2001 and 2003 and grossed $432 million worldwide.

 

Tomb Raider will arrive in theaters on March 16, 2018.
