Amazon's official green light for Phoebe Waller-Bridge's adaptation of the legendary video game Tomb Raider is expected to cause a stir when it debuts as a series.

The company's Upfront event in New York was where Jen Salke, Head of Amazon & MGM Studios, revealed the good news. She called the upcoming series epic and globe-trotting.

Famous for her critically acclaimed work on television series like Fleabag and Killing Eve, Waller-Bridge stated her excitement for the project and acknowledged Tomb Raider's important influence on her life.

She revealed, "I think she would blow up if I could tell my teenage self this was happening. Tomb Raider has been a huge part of my life and I feel incredibly privileged to bring it to television with such passionate collaborators. Lara Croft means a lot to me, as she does to many, and I can’t wait to go on this adventure. Bats ‘n all."

With Waller-Bridge at the helm, fans can expect an exciting and unique take on the beloved character of Lara Croft as she goes on adventurous adventures across the globe.
