To those around the world who bought tickets to see Alicia Vikander’s Tomb Raider reboot, fans in America thank you, because it was reported today that a sequel script is finally in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Free Fire screenwriter Amy Jump is at work on a new screenplay that should by law require Vikander to do at least twice as many pull-ups as she did in the first movie. (That’s a lot of pull-ups, but we believe in the lithe adventurer’s mighty muscles to handle the work.) The first movie cost around $100 million to make, and only brought in $58 million at the domestic box office, which is why there are a lot of thank-you notes that need to go out to international Raider fans — especially those in China, France, and the U.K., who really showed out for Vikander and her climbing ax.

John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman), Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl), Boyd Holbrook (Logan) and Vicky Krieps (The Phantom Thread) have been set to lead cast on hot project du jour Born To Be Murdered, which will be produced by Luca Guadagnino and much of the team behind his Oscar-winner Call Me By Your Name.
Born To Be Murdered is set in Athens and the Epirus region of Greece, where a vacationing couple, played by Washington and Vikander, fall trap to a violent conspiracy with tragic consequences. Ferdinando Cito Filomarino (Antonia) will direct from a screenplay by Kevin Rice. Production is currently underway in Greece.
Producers are Luca Guadagnino and longtime collaborator Marco Morabito for their Frenesy Films, along with longtime co-producer Francesco Melzi and Gabriele Moratti with their MeMo outfit which is also the lead financier. Call Me By Your Name producer Rodrigo Teixera (RT Features) and Rai Cinema also financed.

Endeavor Content reps world sales on the under-the-radar project will be a hot one in the Cannes market next month.
The film’s crew is equally impressive. Cinematographer is Sayombhu Mukdeeprom (Call Me By Your Name), composer is Oscar-winner Ryuichi Sakamoto (The Revenant) and editor is Guadagnino regular Walter Fasano (Call Me By Your Name).
Cito Filomarino was second unit director on Guadagnino-directed trio Suspiria, Call Me My Your Name and A Bigger Splash and made his feature debut on 2015 biopic Antonia, which chronicles the last ten years of the young Italian poet Antonia Pozzi. The film played at festivals including Karlovy Vary, Torino, Seattle and Gothenburg. The director, the great nephew of iconic Italian filmmaker Luchino Visconti, is making his English-language debut on Born To Be Murdered.
Call Me By Your Name outfit Frenesy teamed up with MeMo Films on Guadagnino’s latest feature Suspiria. The latter is currently producing Guadagnino’s upcoming documentary Salvatore, Shoemaker Of Dreams about designer Salvatore Ferragama. Meanwhile, Rodrigo Teixera (Ad Astra) and Guadagnino are currently in pre-production on Blood On The Tracks, the next film to be directed by Guadagnino, who will be in Cannes this year with short film The Staggering Girl.
Cito Filomarino stated, “Born to Be Murdered is my take on the manhunt thriller, as inspired by so many movies and books I always admired. I have worked for years in creating its specific tone and story with the tireless support of my writer Kevin Rice, and I am honored to have the extraordinary John David Washington join me to portray the restless and conflicted journey of such a special character. I am thrilled and to be working with the wonderful Alicia Vikander, the beautifully intense Vicky Krieps, the superb Boyd Holbrook. With this incredible cast and with my unique collaborators, Born to Be Murdered will be a fantastic experience that pushes genre to a new place.”
Guadagnino, Morabito, Melzi and Moratti added in a joint statement, “We have been working with Ferdinando for ten years, following and supporting his career since the beginning. He is an exciting new voice in international cinema, and with Born To Be Murdered, he has the chance to be embraced in a bigger scope and in partnership with such a prestigious cast, composed of some of the best and most interesting performers in the world, especially the wonderful John David Washington whom we believe is one of the most compelling performers around.”
BlacKkKlansman and Ballers star Washington was recently cast in Christopher Nolan’s next film for Warner Bros, slated for a July 2020 release. Oscar-winner Vikander recently starred in the Warner Bros/ MGM remake of Tomb Raider and will soon begin production in Ireland on David Lowery’s The Green Knight.
Predator, Logan and Narcos star Holbrook will next be seen in Tribeca debut Two/One and he will star opposite Michael C. Hall in Netflix thriller In the Shadow of the Moon. Krieps shot to fame thanks to a starring role opposite Daniel Day Lewis in The Phantom Thread. Recent productions include TV mini-series Das Boot, Barry Levinson’s feature Harry Haft and Dan Friedken’s Lyrebird opposite Guy Pierce.
Cito Filomarino is represented by Cinetic Media and WME; Washington is represented by WME and Hansen, Jacobsen, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman, LLP; Vikander is represented by UTA and Tavistock Wood Management; Krieps is represented by Agence Adequat (France), Agentur Homebase (Germany) and Tavistock Wood; and Holbrook is represented by CAA and lawyers Morris Yorn.

Deadline published an article about our girl, to announce that she has been hired as a narrator for the documentary “Anthropocene: The Human Epoch”, which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this week. They also revealed that Alicia has completed the filming of her upcoming thriller “The Earthquake Bird”! Read below:

Tomb Raider and The Danish Girl star Alicia Vikander has lent her voice to big-canvas documentary Anthropocene: The Human Epoch, which will get its world premiere this week at the Toronto Film Festival.

The science-themed doc, from filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier and photographer Edward Burtynsky, contends that human impact on the planet means we have entered a new geological era.

The Toronto-based trio travelled to six of seven continents and 20 countries (the project was entirely carbon offset), documenting evidence of human domination, from concrete seawalls that cover 60% of China’s mainland coast to potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains, and marble quarries in Italy to surreal phosphate tailings ponds in Florida.

The film is in English, Russian, Italian, German, Mandarin and Cantonese with English subtitles. Pic is being released in Canada by Mongrel Media. Seville International is handling international sales.

“Alicia’s exceptional voice, and her considerable talent in knowing how to use it, has elevated our film enormously and brings a beauty and hope to the narration that is crucial. We are deeply honored by her participation,” Baichwal said.

The film is part of The Anthropocene Project, which also includes exhibitions, VR and books. It is the third in a trilogy of films that also include Manufactured Landscapesand Watermark.

Vikander recently wrapped shooting on the Wash Westmoreland thriller Earthquake Bird.

Netflix has teamed with Scott Free on an adaptation of the Susanna Jones novel The Earthquake Bird. Alicia Vikander and Riley Keough are finishing deals to star for Wash Westmoreland, who wrote the script and will direct. The Earthquake Bird is a Tokyo-set female-driven noir thriller that tells the story of young female expat who is suspected of murder after her friend goes missing in the wake of a tumultuous love triangle with a handsome local photographer. The project originally took root at Amazon Studios, but Netflix will make the picture and has set a May production start in Tokyo and Sado Island.
Scott Free’s Kevin Walsh and Michael Pruss will produce alongside Ann Ruark and Twenty First City’s Georgina Pope. Ridley Scott will be exec producer.

With the late Richard Glatzer, Westmoreland wrote and directed Still Alice, as well as Colette, a film Westmoreland unveiled at Sundance where Bleecker Street and 30WEST made a deal to distribute.UTA, Actors in Scandinavia and Tavistock Wood rep Vikander, who’s currently starring in Tomb Raider and just came attached to a Morten Tyldum-directed adaptation of The Marsh King’s Daughter at Black Bear. Keough, who’s coming off Logan Lucky and is upcoming in Under the Silver Lake, is repped by WME and Thirty Three Management.

The Earthquake Bird won several awards including the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize and the Crime Writers’ Association New Blood Dagger Award for newly published authors. Westmoreland seems a strong match for the material: he spent a year studying in Japan around the time the book is set there. He previously co-wrote and co-directed the Sundance winner Quinceañera.
