While the new Tomb Raider film currently holds a $212.1 million world box office gross and a 50% score on Rotten Tomatoes, rumor has it seems the idea of a franchise is not in the cards over at Warner Bros, at least not with Alicia Vikander in the lead-role.
Take this with more than a grain of salt but according to a hotly contested rumor making its way around the internet, the production studio is not interested in a sequel starring the Oscar Winner.
You can read the post yourself below:
“As I told you months and months ago, this foreign born A list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner/nominee was going to bomb with a big box office movie. Sure enough, it happened and now the studio doesn’t want to make a sequel, at least with her.”
Alicia Vikander won Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Danish Girl three years ago and movie fans have been clamoring to see more of her but, if this is to be believed, the action genre will not be the place to go to do-so.

The stakes couldn’t be higher as Lara must rely on her sharp mind, blind faith and stubborn spirit to venture into the unknown.
