Lara Croft’s father is the next bit of casting news announced for the upcoming Tomb Raider film reboot, with the role being filled by none other than The Wire‘s Dominic West.
West’s role in the movie was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter. The actor will follow Jon Voight, who played Lara’s father in the previous Tomb Raider films starring Angelina Jolie, so West will clearly be bringing a younger, handsomer approach to role of Lord Richard Croft.
The upcoming film will follow Lara Croft, played by Alicia Vikander, who must complete her father’s unfinished research and restore his name. A fellow treasure hunter, played by actor Walton Goggins, will attempt to thwart her efforts on the journey.
The Tomb Raider film is expected to hit theaters on March 16th, 2018.
