A third Tomb Raider movie is in the making! With Angelina Jolie out of the picture, what raven haired beauty do YOU think will be cast for the legendary role?
Graham King purchased the rights for Tomb Raider, and is ready to start filming a third installment featuring a young Laura Croft. Angelina Jolie — who brought the iconic action starlet to life — has previously said she wasn’t interested in a third movie, so who has the acting chops and stellar figure to fill out the famous tank top and shorts of Lara Croft?
We put together a list of girls that we think could do Lara justice. They need to be toned, bodacious, and bad ass! This is a role for an action star and we can’t wait to see which brunette beauty will have what it takes to follow the footsteps of Angelina and establish themselves of the next femme fatale action star. Take a look at our picks and tell us who you think should be the next Lara Croft?
Megan Fox: Megan Fox is worshipped by men, is cut throat, and has experience in action movies, but lately she’s been looking a little to svelte to rock the curvaceous look of Lara Croft.
Kristen Stewart: Kristen Stewart is a no nonsense type of girl, is dating the hottest guy in Hollywood, and is a very talented actress, but does she have the sex appeal to pull off Lara Croft?
Nina Dobrev: Nina Dobrev is beautiful, but is she ready to make the leap to the big screen in such a legendary role?
Selena Gomez: Selena Gomez may be dating the biggest teen pop-sensation in the nation, but her looks may not be enough to pull off Lara Croft. She doesn’t quite have the experience or prestige to pull off such an epic role.
Vanessa Hudgens: Vanessa Hudgens has the look and just finished making an action movie, but does she really have the “it” factor needed to be a Lara Croft comparable to Angelina Jolie’s?
Minka Kelly: Minka Kelly’s stunning looks and impressive acting abilities make her a plausible choice for the role. She is starting to do more work in films and just got cast as one of the Charlie’s Angels television series!
Mila Kunis: Mila Kunis would be a great choice because she is edgy, talented, drop dead gorgeous, and her career is on the upswing. We all know she is a great comedic actress, could she be a believable action star?
Kim Kardashian: Kim Kardashian has the body and long raven locks for Lara Croft, but we think her lack of acting experience may prevent her from being considered for the role.
Olivia Wilde: Olivia Wilde should be a front runner because she looked smoking hot in Tron and fit the role of an action starlet perfectly. Her career is also gaining a lot of attention, and another big role like this could launch her into Angelina Jolie status.
Betty White: Betty White is young at heart and probably one of the most badass women in Hollywood! Who wouldn’t love to see Betty White give a sassy performance of Lara Croft, we think she definitely has the spirit of an action star!
Angelina Jolie: Angelina Jolie could return to one of her most well-known roles. Her career is hot and fans would love to see her as Lara Croft again.
