Scrapped Tomb Raider Sequel Storyboards Surface Online

The film’s fate was sealed when MGM lost the rights earlier this year

In 2018 a Tomb Raider film starring Alicia Vikander as Laura Croft was released based on the 2013 reboot of the franchise. Unfortunately, the film didn’t do as well as expected and any hope for a sequel was squashed when MGM lost the rights to the franchise earlier this year.

While many film studios are entangled in a bidding war for the rights to Tomb Raider, artist Jake Lunt Davies has shared storyboards from the scrapped film.

The leaked storyboards show masked intruders invading Lara’s home Croft Manor. Specifically, the storyboards show assailants sneaking across the property during a storm, cutting the power to the manor and stealthily breaking in through a window. A similar scene plays out in the 2001 Tomb Raider film starring Angelina Jolie. When asked whether the building shown was indeed Croft Manor, Davies replied, “Yes, it is. And yes… I have more!”

However, the artist has yet to share more than a few pages of storyboard thus far and unfortunately for fans of the 2018 film, the sequel will never be released. On the plus side with studios in abiding war over the rights, there is sure to be another Tomb Raider movie reboot in the future.

Game Franchises Coming to the Big and Small Screen

While a Tomb Raider film isn’t currently in the works many other game franchises are receiving film and series adaptations. Horror game series, Silent Hill is getting a movie reboot in 2023 while Netflix has hired Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence to direct its upcoming Bioshock film. HBO is releasing season one of it’s The Last of US series next year as well.

Additionally, a Duke Nukem film is being developed by Cobra Kai creators Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald. Amazon Prime is working on a live-action God of War series while PlayStation Productions and Scott Free are collaborating on a movie adaptation of  lesser-known title, Gravity Rush.
