Phoebe Waller-Bridge has told Vanity Fair her love for Lara Croft has stayed with her since gorging on Tomb Raider when she was younger and plans to do "something dangerous and exciting" with the Tomb Raider TV series she is writing for Amazon Prime Video.

"I feel like when you're working in the industry, you've got to ride the waves and lean in," Phoebe Waller-Bridge tells Vanity Fair. "There's room to do something really quite dangerous. And if I can do something dangerous and exciting with Tomb Raider, I already have an audience of people who love Lara and hopefully will continue to. And that is a very unusual position to be in. It's the old Trojan horse."

Earlier this year The Hollywood Reporter published an article stating that a new Tomb Raider film is planned following a massive rights deal for the Lara Croft-helmed franchise between Dmitri M. Johnson's dj2 Entertainment and Amazon. dj2 Entertainment is also reportedly attached to a new Amazon-fronted Tomb Raider TV series written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
