After hearing bits and pieces of rumors for months, Lara Croft's return to the big screen has finally been made official. The Departed producer Graham King is re-launching the franchise that once starred Angelina Jolie with a plan to hit theaters in 2013.
King told Variety, "We are very excited to be rebooting what is already a hugely successful film franchise and continuing the Tomb Raider phenomenon." The first couple of films really helped launch Angelina Jolie as an action star, and so we expect the new franchise to do something similar for another actress.
Mila Kunis and Olivia Wilde are not good suggestions for this role. C'mon people, think before you type. The role is Lara Croft so not only do they have to be hot but they have to look like they can kick a$$ and end up kicking major a$$ and let's face it, while Olivia and Mila are gorgeous and great actresses they are tiny and anybody can break them in half in 3 seconds.
I vote Tatyana Vorzheva or Olga Kurylenko.
There is a woman that looks just like her, but...Like it was said before, the role of Lara Croft should be played by whom the video game most represents. With that in mind, if you would really like to keep Angelina then the closest person I have seen to looking like her is a beautiful woman that goes by the name of Tatyana Vorzheva. Check her out, its pretty close if you ask me.

I agree with you Erk Melville. She looks exactly like Jolie only hotter. What all these moronic bafoons don't realize when they are suggesting Mila Kunis and Olivia Wilde for the part is they need to find a very attractive woman who can pass as a woman who should not be reckoned with. The role is a gorgeous woman who looks like she can (and does) kick major a$$. No offense to Mila Kunis or Olivia Wilde because they are great actresses and major hotties but they don't look like they can put up a fight.
Maybe Tatyana Vorzheva or even Olga Kurylenko (we know Olga can put up a fight and she is majorly hot, just not as busty as Lara Croft but that's okay with me).
I do not think that there should be another Lara Croft. There should not be a continuation of the tomb raider phenomenon. Angelina Jolie kicked *** as Lara Croft and I don't think that anyone else can compare or replace her. Leave Lara Croft alone and start something new. I mean correct me if I am wrong but no one tried to create a new Steven Segal, Chuck Norri, Rocky, etc... This is unexceptable and if they do this I am not going to watch the movies so let Angelina Jolie be the one and only Lara Croft and the raining queen of the tomb raider phenomenon .
On the other hand, there have been a decent succession of James Bond actors, and a couple different actors who played the character of Jack Ryan in movies based on Tom Clancy series. Batman has been played by 5 actors on the big screen, and he is the reigning king of the superhero phenomenom.
no one can replace Angelina Jolie
I am so glad that someone is making some sense here. Thank you
Please, Angelina was great in the role 7+ yrs. ago, but she is getting a little long in the tooth for a new adaption of the franchise. Lara Croft needs to be someone "younger and fresh" to make the movie work again!
Megan Fox would be the perfect choice because she has the wild exotic looking face.
She does have that exotic-beauty about her, Ms. Megan Fox and could be easily a kind to the legendary Actress Ms. JOLIE. I also think Ms. Emily Browning (Violet from Lemmony Snicket) and now in the new movie Sucker Punch can carry on the famous action woman LARA CROFT.
Yes I agree with what you just said and I'm glad we're on the same page here!
Why not bring back Angelina? She can still hold her own as proven in SALT.
Why not bring back Angelilna? She can still hold her own as proven in SALT.
I vote Zoe Saldana. She can carry her own and can be a bad *** action b*tch first class. Did you see her kick butt in The Losers? Don't sleep on Zoe!
I like the Mila Kunis idea. would not be opposed to the Anne Hathaway idea either. Love Milla Jovovich but well lets face facts she is missing an important Lara Croft trait. as far as action tho she would be awesome. Rodriguez would not be a bad pick either. Or Alba. most of the previous suggestions are all good. top pick would be Kunis though.
When your right,your right RioBlue! Michelle Rodriguez would be a kickass Laura Croft.Second choice Eva Mendez .Two beautiful strong Latinas also Fast and Furious chicas!!!! Chaoow!!!
British Acrress Katie McGrath. This actress is great she plays morgana in BBC's Merlin. On top of actually being from the UK, she is gorgeous. And far more talented then Jolie who I think is the most overrated actress in hollywood today.
I totally agree about Angeline being overrated.
well, if they go the way of the game, each time they cast a actress to play the part, they'd need to be more and more busty each film! just saying they need to mirror the game like that, right?
I believe that it should be Milla Jovovich because she is already familiar with the game-to-film genre.
I can definately agree with Milla Jovovich! She's a great actress, could look the part with a little makeup and knows how to work an action film. The only major obstacle I think would be that she doesn't have nearly a large enough rack to be lara. But thats where hollywood makeup comes into play.
Jessica Alba or Megan Fox

"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
