Hollywood has started a “war” over the rights to Tomb Raider. Sequel with Alicia Vikander canceled

Hollywood movie companies and streaming services compete for the movie rights to Tomb Raider. They have been owned by MGM (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) for the past nine years, but have now returned to producer Graham King and GK Films.

In 2018, MGM relaunched the franchise with Tomb Raider: Lara Croft starring Alicia Vikander. The shooting of the second part was supposed to start before May 2022, but that did not happen, causing MGM to lose the rights. Now intellectual property is changing hands.
