Dominic West to play Lara Croft's father in Tomb Raider

Production on Roar Uthaug's (THE WAVE) TOMB RAIDER began earlier this week, and in turn, we have another cast announcement. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dominic West has joined the cast as Lara Croft's (Alicia Vikander) father. His role, however small or large, should have some major repercussions in the story, as the film is said to follow Lara Croft as she sets out on her first expedition to finish her father's research and uncover ancient secrets in order to clear his disgraced name. Thanks, dad!

While I haven't seen THE WAVE for myself, word on the streets is that director Uthaug brought some humanity back to disaster films. I couldn't tell you if he's the right choice for a TOMB RAIDER flick, but at this point, I don't think anyone's really holding their breath for a great video game adaptation. ASSASSIN'S CREED seemed like our best shot in recent years, and that vanished like a fart in the wind. Here's hoping we're all pleasantly surprised come March of next year.

TOMB RAIDER is scheduled to open in theaters on March 16, 2018.
