Amazon is rumored to be working on a TV series adaptation of the long-running media franchise Tomb Raider, with Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge heavily involved.
The project is reportedly currently “in the development stages,” with the lead actress taking on the role of Lara Croft still unconfirmed. Waller-Bridge is set to pen the script and executive produce alongside Ryan Andolina, Amanda Greenblatt and Dmitri M. Johnson.
The Tomb Raider franchise has spawned a total of 20 video games between 1996 and 2023, as well as two movie franchises starring Angelina Jolie in 2001 and 2003 and Alicia Vikander in 2018.
