The new report from Variety confirms Hayley Atwell in the grave robber animated series. The new series will continue the video game story. The original game came out 25 years ago, and the new series will celebrate that occasion with a high-profile anime adaptation. However, Hayley Atwell isn’t the first high-profile actress to take on the role.
The very first live-action adaptation of grave robber saw Angelina Jolie kick ass as the video game heroine. While the movies in retrospect were pretty good, it was the best video game adaptations could do at the time. In 2018, Alicia Vikander took on the role in a more realistic and “gritty” reboot. There’s still talk of a sequel, but no concrete confirmation has come since an initial announcement. But with news of Hayley Atwell in the grave robber anime, it looks like another release will come before this live action movie.
