Misha Green reveals the title of Lara Croft's next film, it will be "Tomb Raider: Obsidian"
The Tomb Raider movie sequel is unofficially (for now) titled Tomb Raider: Obsidian, incoming director Misha Green has revealed.
Green stepped in to helm the Tomb Raider sequel after previous director Ben Wheatley left the project earlier this year. Having previously directed episode 8 of HBO's Lovecraft Country, starring Jurnee Smollett and Jonathan Majors, Green is making her feature-length directorial debut with the sequel to the 2018 cinematic Tomb Raider reboot.
In a Twitter post shared Friday, Green not only let loose the working title for the next Tomb Raider movie; she also confirmed that the first draft of the script has been completed.
Of course, Green simultaneously reminded everyone not to get too ahead of themselves, despite the good news. While this undoubtedly means Warner Bros. is still moving ahead with the sequel, Green notes that there's still "a long way to production" and says the title hasn't even been approved. Regardless, a finished script is a good sign that the creative cogs are turning.
For her part, Alicia Vikander will return to star in the film in her role as Lara Croft.
