Vikander became attached to the role of Lara Croft in April.
MGM and Warner Bros are co-producing the film. They acquired the rights from GK Films which had previously purchased the film rights in 2011 from Square Enix Ltd. Graham King is serving as producer.
The original “Tomb Raider” game was published in 1996 by the London-based video game company Eidos and went on to become one of the most successful video games of the time. Eidos is now part of an international interactive entertainment group, Square Enix.
The Tomb Raider franchise has sold over 45 million copies worldwide. Paramount’s two films starring Angelina Jolie as British archaeologist Lara Croft were released in 2001 and 2003 and grossed $432 million worldwide.
Vikander won an Oscar for her performance in “The Danish Girl,” and also garnered attention for her performance in “Ex Machina.” Coming up, the actress has the next movie in the Jason Bourne franchise and “The Light Between Oceans” opposite Michael Fassbender.
“Tomb Raider” is the first film dated on March 16, 2018. Speculation previously emerged that the studio was going to open its DC Comics title “The Flash” on that date, but Warners has yet to set an official date for the superhero movie.
Warner Bros. also announced Thursday that it had dated “Unforgettable,” a dramatic thriller that stars Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson for April 21, 2017.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The long-gestating Weinstein Co. project Tulip Fever won’t be blooming this month as expected.
In the latest shuffle of its release schedule, the studio has pushed the period drama seven months, from a release date of July 15 to Feb. 24, 2017.
The film, starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander opposite Dane DeHaan and Christoph Waltz, was shot back in 2014 and has been finished for more than a year and was just nine days away from release when TWC announced the push.
Tulip Fever is based on Deborah Moggach’s novel about an artist (DeHaan) who falls in love with a married woman (Vikander) after he’s commissioned by her husband (Waltz) to paint her portrait. Justin Chadwick directed from an adapted script by Tom Stoppard.
The film is set to open opposite Paramount’s God Particle and Open Road’s Sleepless on its new date.
