Why haven’t we seen any more Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movies in a while?  The rights reverted back to game creator Eidos a few years ago and apparently there has been a bidding war over which studio would pick up the franchise.  The Hollywood Reporter is noting Time Warner invested more money into the game company, which included the film rights.  Now the studio is trying to put something together for the next generation of movie goers.

The new project, however, is expected to revamp the character and her mission and bear little resemblance to the original pictures. It will reimagine the origins of the character, her love interest and the main villain.

As an open-writing assignment, the project is still in its nascent stages. An actress who could play the role Angelina Jolie made famous would likely come on after a writer and director are attached.

I think Angelina Jolie may not be young enough to reprise her role, so who should take over the mantle of the tomb raider? My money is on Megan Fox, but you can use the comment section below to throw out your wish list of actresses.

  1. nah, she had big enough boobs. maybe she wore prosthetics, but a good push-up bra and she’d be good to go. her boobs are, how can i say it gently, flabby.

    megan fox on the other hand have no choice but to have prosthetics.

    i’d personnally go with the girl in the picture, but i doubt her talents as an actress.

  2. Angelina Jolie too old? why not just go with CG, supernaked, golden-nippled Angelina Jolie, I hear she’s not doing anything…

  3. I just read about this on…hopefully since Warner is taking control they will give it the serious treatment it needs.

  4. I say step away from the cliche Lara Croft of the videogames (i.e. boobs) and make her more realistic as a character. And yes, I think Rhona Mitra could be a good candidate too. No Jolie or Fox please.
