Killjoys and Ready Player One actress Hannah John-Kamen has signed to star opposite Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander in Tomb Raider, playing Lara Croft’s flatmate and best friend, according to Deadline.
Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug is at the helm, with a cast that also includes Walton Goggins as the film’s main villain and Daniel Wu as a ship captain who teams up with Vikander’s Lara on a quest to find her father, played by The Wire‘s Dominic West.
A first look at Vikander was revealed last month along with official details about the film’s plot. Tomb Raider is currently filming in South Africa before production moves to additional locations such as the UK.
The reboot finds Lara as a bike courier in London, taking college classes rather than running the business empire of her missing father until she one day decides to investigate his disappearance at his last-known location: a tomb on an island located somewhere off the coast of Japan.
Tomb Raider hits theaters on March 16, 2018.
