Tomb Raider TV Series interesting development at Amazon Studio

Amazon is developing a Tomb Raider TV series written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The series is part of Fleabag’s overall deal with the streaming service. Following Angelina Jolie’s and Alicia Vikander’s Tomb Raider films, the Lara Croft series is the latest attempt to adapt the games as live-action projects.

The announcement of Waller-Tomb Bridge’s Raider series comes just one day after fans learned that she had extended her overall contract with Amazon for another three years. Following the success of Fleabag, Amazon was reportedly aggressive in its efforts to renew its partnership with Waller-Bridge.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Waller-Bridge has been hired to write the Tomb Raider series for Amazon. However, it is currently unknown whether Waller-Bridge will appear in the Tomb Raider series. In addition to her writing duties, Waller-Bridge is an executive producer on Amazon’s Tomb Raider series. She will take on this role alongside former Amazon comedy and drama head Ryan Andolina and former overall deals head Amanda Greenblatt.

Given Waller-acclaimed Bridge’s work, Amazon’s Tomb Raider TV series may finally deliver the live-action adaptation fans have been waiting for.

Jolie’s Tomb Raider film was profitable enough to warrant a sequel, but neither film was well-received. Vikander’s film was arguably more successful with audiences and critics, but hopes for a sequel were dashed when MGM lost the film rights to Tomb Raider, and Vikander was no longer attached to the Lara Croft role.

The Tomb Raider films are not the first video game adaptations to let fans down. However, Waller-adaptation Bridger’s does not have a low bar to clear. Fans are likely to raise the bar for video game movies and show as a result of HBO’s The Last of Us perfectly integrating its video game moments.

Still, Waller-work Bridge with Fleabag demonstrates her ability to produce quality shows. The James Bond franchise even entrusted her with the script for No Time to Die. Furthermore, Waller-Bridge has prior experience in the action-adventure genre, having played Helena in Indiana Jones 5.

With video game adaptations arguably improving in recent years, Waller-Bridge could be the perfect person to bring Lara Croft’s adventures to life on the small screen.
