Phoebe Waller-Bridge is working on a Tomb Raider series on Amazon ...

According to IndieWire, Amazon is developing more than a "Tomb Raider" series. A film, a Phoebe Waller-Bridge series, and a previously announced video game are all based on the Lara Croft video game character.

Following an initial report that a "Tomb Raider" series was in the works, THR reported that Amazon had reached an agreement with Dmitri Johnson's dj2 Entertainment that would reunite Amazon with "Tomb Raider," following MGM's previous authorization of film adaptation rights to the video game. Waller-Bridge will not be involved in the game or the film, but the expectation is that a series project might emerge first in order to relaunch the franchise and open the door for other stories to

dj2 Entertainment, the company that created the Netflix anime adaptation of "Tomb Raider," has been working for some time to get the film rights in order, while also the rights to the games while waiting for Embracer's acquisition of Square Enix's assets to expire.

Amazon had previously declined to comment on the story to IndieWire.

The original story is shown below.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is said to be working on an Amazon video game adaptation of the popular "Tomb Raider" video game series after appearing in the upcoming "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny."

Waller-Bridge has renewed her deal with Amazon earlier this month. She will direct the in-development film but will not portray Lara Croft, a gun-throwing adventurer who is now working on a series with Ryan Andolina and Amanda Greenblatt, former Amazon directors of comedy and drama and overall deals.

Amazon has declined to comment on the report to IndieWire.

The "Tomb Raider" franchise began in 1994 with the original PlayStation action video game from Core Design, which sells over seven million copies worldwide, and subsequent titles have sold over 95 million copies worldwide. The most recent games were created by Crystal Dynamics and released between 2013 and 2018.

The Croft character has already made it to live-action twice, with both in 2001 and 2003, and the sequel to "The Cradle of Life," which starred Angelina Jolie as Lara, both received mixed reception at the box office. A reboot based on the 2013 trilogy was released by Warner Bros. in 2018, with Alicia Vikander as Lara, but this was canceled when MGM's film rights expired.

Waller-Bridge will star in John Krasinski's 2024 film "If," which premiered in the upcoming "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" Amazon series with her "Solo" co-star, but she was reportedly fired due to creative disagreements.
