With production now underway on the Tomb Raider reboot, the film has brought in Dominic West.
The Hollywood Reporter has word that the talented actor, likely best known to genre fans for the likes of The Wire, 300 and for playing Jigsaw in Punisher: War Zone, will be playing the father of Alicia Vikander’s Lara Croft in the redo.
As well as Vikander, West joins a cast that also includes Walton Goggins and Daniel Wu.
Fans of the Tomb Raider property have previously seen two outings from Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and The Cradle of Life. Of course, Tomb Raider originated as a video game first published back in 1996. The most recent game, 2013’s Rise of the Tomb Raider, has sold over 5 million copies, which shows that there’s still plenty of affection for the iconic Croft.
To be directed by The Wave’s Roar Uthaug, this new Tomb Raider effort is currently set for a March 16th, 2018 release.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
