‘Tomb Raider’ reboot with Alicia Vikander wraps production, still set for March 2018

Director Roar Uthaug has shared a new set video to his Instagram account, officially announcing that production has wrapped on his upcoming Tomb Raider reboot which stars Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft.

Various members of the cast and crew can be seen in Uthaug’s clip, but it’s difficult to tell of Ex Machina actress Alicia Vikander is among them because of the glow from the lights. Check it out HERE

Vikander will play a younger version of Lara Croft, who travels to the coast of Japan to investigate the disappearance of her father. The plot is expected to be heavily influenced by the 2013 video game which followed Croft’s adventures after she was shipwrecked on the fictional island of Yamatai.

Justified star Walton Goggins set to play the film’s antagonist: Mathias Vogel. Daniel Wu, who first rose to fame in Hong Kong and China as a protégé of Jackie Chan and will star as Lu Ren, described as “a ship captain who partners with Croft on a quest to find her father.”

Dominic West is set to play Lara’s father, Lord Richard Croft. Hannah John-Kamen will play a character named Sarah.

Tomb Raider  is set to hit theaters on March 16, 2018.

Here’s the Tomb Raider plot synopsis:

“Seven years after the disappearance of her father, 21-year-old Lara has refused to take the reins of his global business empire, instead working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes. Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her father’s disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.”
