When you, like me, are having hassle holding monitor of all of the online game variations coming to TV and movie, you’ll have forgotten {that a} Tomb Raider collection is in growth over at Amazon. Properly, mates, I can’t be forgetting about this present any time quickly, now that author/actor/comic Phoebe Waller-Bridge is reportedly writing the script for the present.

In keeping with a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Waller-Bridge is connected to the live-action present as a author, although there’s no phrase on whether or not or not the Fleabag star will probably be in entrance of the digicam presently. Alongside writing, she’s set to behave as govt producer alongside Ryan Andolina and Amanda Grenblatt, who each not too long ago left Amazon to discovered their very own manufacturing firm, and have labored out additional offers with Bezos and co. to work on tasks just like the Tomb Raider collection.

When you’re unfamiliar with Waller-Bridge’s work, she is understood all through the web for her position because the titular character in Fleabag, a two-season collection (additionally produced by and streaming on Amazon) which can also be one of many few examples we’ve got of what good tv seems like.

Don’t thank me, as a result of it’ll break you for days. Come for Waller-Bridge’s sharp writing and efficiency, keep for Andrew Scott because the Scorching Priest.

This collection would be the third time Tomb Raider has seen a live-action adaptation, with Angelina Jolie and Alicia Vikander portraying Lara Croft in two separate movie collection.
