Due to the excellent writing of the Tomb Raider reboot, a silver screen spin-off sounds like a good idea.
Films based on popular video games titles have often disappointed, including the previous Tomb Raider films that starred Angelina Jolie as the eponymous lead, but there is a chance that it could work out well this time.
The Hollywood Reporter has recently discovered that the actress to play a young Lara Croft has been found by MGM and Warner Bros., and she is The Danish Girl star Alicia Vikander.
She won an Oscar for her performance in the drama, and after successes with roles in Ex Machina and The Man From UNCLE, the Swedish actress could be finding herself in a breakthrough role playing an iconic video game character.
Tomb Raider has Roar Uthaug (The Wave) in the director’s seat and is going to closely follow the 2013 game reboot. Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens lead Daisy Ridley was previously reported as the favorite for the role of Lara Croft, but it seems that Vikander has been deemed more suited for the part.
