Walton Goggins Is The “Tomb Raider” Villain

“Justified” and “The Hateful Eight” alum Walton Goggins has scored the role of the villain in the upcoming cinematic reboot of the “Tomb Raider” franchise based on the classic video game series.

Goggins joins Alicia Vikander who takes on the role of Lara Croft in the video game adaptation which is expected to be quite similar to the 2013 game reboot which shows a much younger Lara Croft and helps set up how she became the titular treasure hunter.

Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug (“The Wave”) will direct the film, which has a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. The new film is targeting a March 16th 2018 release.
