I don’t know how one wins an Oscar then says, “gimme Tomb Raider. gimme that reboot movie about a 1996 video game.” You think that person’s agent would talk them out of it. Yet here we are. Ex Machina‘s Alicia Vikander is now your new Lara Croft.
Alicia Vikander has been cast today as Lara Croft for MGM, Warner Bros and GK Films in Tomb Raider. The reboot will tell the story of a young and untested Lara Croft fighting to survive her first adventure….This was a role that every young actress was after with Daisy Ridley, Cara Delevigne, Emilia Clarke and Saoirse Ronan all rumored at some point.
“The reboot will tell the story of a young and untested Lara Croft fighting to survive her first adventure” and before she finds the ancient artifact that makes her look like 2001 Angelina Jolie. Not sure where in Beverly Hills they’re gonna film this.
