Things are going full steam ahead with the Alicia Vikander starring Tomb Raider reboot. 

Norwegian filmmaker, Roar Uthaug is the man the director's chair and he's got a release date of March 18th, 2018 to start working towards. 

His first order of business has come in the casting of the film's villain and if this is a sign of things to come then we have every reason to get excited about the new film. 

According to Variety, Walton Goggins has signed on to play the film's antagonist. 

The news caps a great year for Goggins which saw him deliver a scene stealing performance in Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight and star opposite Danny McBride in the new HBO comedy series, Vice Principals

Goggins is a terrific choice in our books and we're sure that fans of Justified will agree there are few actors in Hollywood that would make a superior villain.
