Alicia Vikander cast as Lara Croft in "Tomb Raider" Reboot
Earlier today, Variety broke the news that Oscar-Winning Actress Alicia Vikander (Ex_Machina, The Danish Girl) will play Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider Reboot.
Previous reports had stated that Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Daisy Ridley was the forerunner for the role after the actress had confirmed that talks with MGM had taken place, but it was confirmed today that Vikander will fill the boots of the famous adventuring video game hero.
Sources at MGM also confirmed that Vikander was always their first choice to play Ms. Croft.
Graham King’s GK Films which acquired the rights to Tomb Raider in 2011 from Square Enix will produce the film with MGM serving as the distributor.
Roar Uthaug will direct the film which follows the adventure of the British archaeologist.
