The “Lovecraft Country” and “Underground” creator is set to make her feature directorial debut, writing and directing the next installment of “Tomb Raider” for MGM.
Alicia Vikander will reprise her role as Lara Croft in the sequel to the 2018 action flick, which earned nearly $275M at the global box office.
Green shared her excitement about the project on Twitter, posting a little tease for fans and fellow gamers about the storyline.
“My fav from classic era is Legend & from survival era it’s a tie between Rise & Shadow,” Green wrote. “Who’s as excited as I am for a @TombRaiderMovie!?!?”
Green is on quite the hot streak after last summer’s “Lovecraft Country,“ which was a smash hit for HBO. Green created, directed and served as a writer and executive producer on the show, based on the novel by Matt Ruff, alongside Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams.
