MGM will not be behind the follow-up to the 2018 ‘Tomb Raider’ movie, as the studio has not only lost the rights to the film, they have also lost star Alicia Vikander, who played Lara Croft in the 2018 movie.

According to The Wrap, MGM had until May of this year to get the next ‘Tomb Raider’ film off the ground, but that never happened, and as a result the film rights have now reverted back to the development team behind the classic video game series, Crystal Dynamics.

However, the rights are now reportedly being battled out in a bidding way among several studios. The 2018 film grossed nearly $275 million at the global box office against a reported $160 movie budget.

The sequel to the 2018 movie was supposed to be directed and produced by Misha Green, and was slated to be her feature directorial debut, but now it appears the the project is now going the route of a complete reboot.

Vikander is no longer attached to the project.
