The very beautiful star of Ex_Machina and The Man From UNCLE Alicia Vikander has been cast in what must surely be one of Hollywood’s most sought after roles.
Yes, she’ll play Lara Croft in the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise for MGM, Warner Bros and GK Films.
The movie also has a director in the the form of The Wave’s Roar Uthaug and is set to introduce Croft before she comes the world’s (second) most famous archaeologist.
While it was strongly suspected that The Force Awakens’ Daisy Ridley would be the iconic character, it seems the choice has been made and, while we’d love to see Ridley in the role, we think Vikander is a wonderful choice too.
Get excited, Tomb Raider is coming back to the big screen, folks!
