Vikander is joined alongside Dominic West as her on-screen father, Walton Goggins as the villain and Daniel Wu as the captain of a ship.

Paramount Pictures previously made two films about the daredevil archeologist on a series of global missions. The films, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life starred Angelina Jolie and grossed a combined $432 million at the worldwide box office.

Uthaug is best known for directing the 2015 disaster drama The Wave. Although that film didn’t got nominated, it became Norway’s official entry at the Academy Awards.
