Ben Wheatley has been set to direct MGM’s Tomb Raider sequel, with the studio setting a release date of March 19th, 2021.

This report comes from Deadline, who also confirmed that Alicia Vikander is reprising her role as the treasure-hunting heroine Lara Croft. Wheatley is known for his work on films like Kill List, Sightseers, and High-Rise. Frequent Wheatley collaborator Amy Jump (Kill List, A Field in England, High-Rise, Free Fire) is writing the script, and Graham King is producing through his GK Films banner, and Elizabeth Cantillon.

Wheatley is currently in post-production on Rebecca for Working Title Films.

Directed by Roar Uthaug, last year’s Tomb Raider film grossed $275 million worldwide. Production on the sequel will begin early next year, and we’ll keep you posted on any major developments.
