We thought the rumors surrounding Tomb Raider and Lara Croft were done for! The last time the character hit the big screen was in 2003 when Angelina Jolie appeared in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. The film bored us to tears, just as the first one did in 2001 but Hollywood still wants to reboot it. The latest news about the impending film centers on Tron Legacy star Olivia Wilde, who’s supposedly up for the part of the new Lara.
If you do want Wilde to play the character you’re out of luck because it’s not happening. According to OnTheRedCarpet, her reps deny that she’s taking on the role previously played by Jolie. Wilde joins the ranks of Megan Fox as another star who’s debunked their attachment to the project. Who’s putting this info out there?
We guess we can understand the attraction to the Tomb Raider series. “The character holds the one Guinness World Record for “most recognized female video game character, and another one for “most official real life stand-ins.” Take that Sonya Blade from Mortal Kombat!
Who do you think should play Lara Croft in the next Tomb Raider movie?
