Tomb Raider reboot finds a director

The reboot of Tomb Raider has found itself a director. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the hugely successful video game series that became two blockbuster movies will be rebooted by Roar Uthuang, the director behind the Norwegian disaster drama The Wave. 

The film has been worked by a series of writers, with Geneva Robertson-Dworet, co-writer on Transformers 5, currently in negotiations to complete work on the screenplay. 

Angelina Jolie starred as heroine Lara Craft in 2001's Tomb Raider and 2003's Tomb Raider: Cradle Of Life, but will not be involved in the reboot. No actress has been confirmed for the role so far, but, in recent years, The Maze Runner star Kaya Scodelario and Captain America's Hayley Atwell have been linked with the role.
