I really struggled with the reboot (after hoping for a step up from the Jolie stuff)The quality levels need upping significantly to make me even show an interest on Netflix...

Good. It was a solid adventure. Needs to be a lot better this time round though.

Agree, it was watchable but deserved to be a lot better. Hopefully they’ll learn from the mistakes of the first one.

he's about the last guy I would have thought they'd tap for this one... and it suddenly became a lot more interesting

Wheatley is the last guy you expect to helm any blockbuster, but I am reliably informed he's virtually been paid nothing his entire career so the guy deserves a pay day.

Have 0% interest in a Tomb Raider film personally but this is news worthy casting.

This news has made me think about watching the first now (as I think it's on Netflix) - is it worth my time?

Filming has now moved to an later date this Summer, with location changes.
Rumoured that MGM is also looking to sell the franchise

caught the first one on Netflix - most of it, anyways, had to turn it off due to it being awful.
