Tom Holkenborg "Junkie XL" to score Tomb Raider (2018)

Following rumours of James Newton Howard's attachment to Roar Uthaug's upcoming Tomb Raider film reboot, set for release in March 2018, Junkie XL has let slip in an interview regarding his departure from Justice League that Tomb Raider is his next gig. Junkie XL "is now moving on to Tomb Raider", according to sources via The Hollywood Reporter, quoting Holkenborg in regards to losing out to Danny Elfman:

" haven't made it in Hollywood as a composer until you get replaced on a project. So I guess [I] finally graduated this week." - Tom Holkenborg/Junkie XL on Justice League

Holkenborg has a diverse background and boasts Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Mad Max: Fury Road & 300: Rise of an Empire as recent high profile film credentials. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) & Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life (2003) were helmed by Graeme Revell and Alan Silvestri.

Uthaug consistently collaborates with Magnus Beite, a partnership that now dissipates with the director's entry to Hollywood, while Tomb Raider game composer Nathan McCree also teased the role. Tomb Raider is based on the 2013 video game reboot of the franchise and stars Alicia Vikander as the titular icon.
