THR is reporting that Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) has been cast as the next Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. Rumors were swirling around that The Force Awaken’s Daisy Ridley was a top consideration, but other reports are stating that it was always Vikander’s spot to ‘lose’.
Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug will helm the reboot of Tomb Raider. It will closely follow the reboot from Square Enix that was released in 2013. The story of course follows Croft on her first adventures.
