Daisy Ridley Confirms Talks For ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot

It turns out the recent report linking Daisy Ridley to the long-developing “Tomb Raider” reboot is more than mere rumor.

The star of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” confirmed Sunday to The Hollywood Reporter that “there have been conversations” about her stepping into the role of Lara Croft.

“I’m waiting for someone to say ‘I want you, let’s do it,'” the 23-year-old actress said, noting there’s no script yet.

Her “Star Wars” co-star John Boyega, who played Square Enix’s most recent “Tomb Raider” game, told the website he encouraged Ridley to pursue the role: “I texted Daisy [and] was like, ‘this is you!’ and ‘you need to get on that because you could be Lara Croft.’ She should be.”

Roar Uthaug (“The Wave”) is on board to direct the Warner Bros./MGM film, which has been in the works since 2011.

Archaeologist-adventurer Lara Craft was famously portrayed by Angelina Jolie in two movie adaptations, 2001’s “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and 2003’s “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life,” which grossed a combined $432 million worldwide.

    her boobs arent big enough

    Because the size of an actresses breasts is all that matters, and her acting ability definitely doesn’t matter at all!

    Considering how they showcased Jolie’s “talents”, I’d say this is spot on

    Ha!

    Jolie was playing the old version of the character. Check out the reboot, less basketball chesty.

    …and by checkout I mean read an article, watch a demo.

    So should I expect a complex narrative about woman’s struggle to crack the misogynistic glass ceiling?

    I don’t know… I liked Force Awakens but I thought Daisy Ridley’s performance was really wooden. I’ve not seen her in other films. Is she normally better than that?

  • Scion

    Only if the script is written by Tumblr, like The Force Awakens.

  • mel

    Don’t see how that’s a problem. It’s a tradition that’s in the other 6 movies of the series.

    How about you go look it up instead of dropping sexist jokes, dude?
