A Rise Of The Tomb Raider Mini-Series Is In The Works

It looks as though a live-action series to coincide with Rise of The Tomb Raider is officially in the works, as developer Crystal Dynamics and actor/director Stephen Lunsford announced via Twitter today.

“I’m happy to announce that I will be creating a #TombRaider mini-series to be released with Rise of The Tomb Raider,” Lunsford writes. “This will act as a prequel to the game and eventual movie. We are currently in pre-production and working hard to make sure this becomes the best live-action iteration of Lara Croft yet. Thank you to Crystal Dynamics for all of your support and I can’t wait to make this a reality. I will have updates as the project progresses.”

Lunsford’s most notable credentials, when regrading this mini-series, is the fact that he has directed a number of short YouTube commercials coinciding with the release of 2013’s Tomb Raider. He’s also appeared in MTV’s Teen Wolf series and has directed several other projects.

Of course, the recent news about Rise of the Tomb Raider revolves around its timed exclusivity deal with Microsoft, with the latter revealing it’ll be publishing the game for release on the Xbox One.
