Daisy Ridley rumored to be in consideration for the Tomb Raider reboot

03.10.2016

Daisy Ridley might not have been a household name a year ago, but a little film called THE FORCE AWAKENS changed all that. She may be knee-deep in filming STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII right now, but that's not going to stop studios from considering her for other films. Case in point, TOMB RAIDER. According to Deadline, Daisy Ridley might be one of the names up for Warner Bros. and MGM's reboot of the franchise. The story (for those not in the know) follows English Tomb Raider archaeologist Lara Croft and her quest to NOT seem like a total ripoff of Indiana Jones.

To be fair, the latest Tomb Raider video games have done a pretty great job at recreating Lara Croft in a way that doesn't seem like Indy. Granted, we could argue that Uncharted did it better, but that's beside the point. Ridley's a great actress and while I have a feeling her plate's a little full right now with STAR WARS, I wouldn't be upset at all to see her rocking dual pistols or a bow and arrow!

Who would you like to see play Lara Croft?

I figure the role would work with someone more muscular, athletic. Not a skinny chick role.

Never considered her but she would be great for the part.

Well, I'm sure it'd bring in the lesbian and feminist audience.

Someone that can't act and doesn't look the part... of course she'll probably get it.

She could work, but I prefer Camilla Luddington who actually provided some voice work and motion performances for the game already, plus she is smoking hot. Alexandra Daddario would be a nice choice as well.

She's a great mattress but...

I don't think Lara has to have a huge bodacious rack or anything... I think this girl would he great I just think she's a little young and needs to have a touch more sex appeal to her. She seems fresh out of high school.

She could be amazing, but the movie itself is going to suck

Yeah, another day, another video game being turned into a shitty movie. There is no way this movie, much like the Assassins Creed movie, will turn out to be any good. They could get the best actors and actresses and the problem will always be the studios behind the movie never understand what makes the games so great. Look at Hitman. Such a simple fucking concept and yet twice they fucked it up and made it only like 10% of what Hitman is all about and the rest is generic trailer fodder.

I still don't understand how you screw up Hitman! It should be one of the easiest things to adapt. A lot of the missions in the game would transfer to the big screen perfectly well. IF they were every going to give it another shot, I would say go with Antoine Fuqa. The last 20 minutes or so of The Equalizer was basically the perfect Hitman movie.

Disagree with you on Tomb Raider though. I think there's a good film to be made with the material.

Horrible casting

This would almost be worse than WB's Wonder Woman casting.

I would be perfectly fine with this. She has the looks and definitely the ambition for it after seeing her hold her own in the Force Awakens.

She should be careful with role selection, there is a Star Wars curse

Hayden Christensen, Ewan McGregor, Mark Hamill, Natalie Portman, Carrie Fisher, Jar Jar Binks... Only Harrison Ford made it out of these movies with a solid movie career, maybe Samuel L Jackson too but he was a star before the movies. You can argue that Natalie Portman has had some success, but look at her now, Video on Demand with Jane's Got a Gun, not sure if it had any theatrical release.

That being said, she would probably be a good Lara Croft and make a decent movie. Cant be any worse

I don't agree with that. The prequels were terrible and maybe hurt Portman but she had black swan and Thor and more. She had parts, just not great films. Ewans star has died down but he is still making movies, some of good quality. Star Wars didn't hurt Hayden. Hayden hurt Hayden. He can't act. And Mark Hamill can't act. And Fisher was way drugged out. No curse. Issacs is pretty huge, Ren is blowing up, and the other 2 prolly will. Not to mention serkis and that red head from ex

Lucas just isn't an actor's director

Yeah, Jar Jar Binks would have had a much more lucrative career if he hadn't been in a Star Wars movie.

Seriously, no fact that you even know an actors name after he or she has been in a Star Wars movie says something. Hayden Christensen, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are only known for Star Wars but they are known and that notoritity has gotten them work. Hayden Christensen and Carrie Fisher aren't exactly great actors and they'd have gone on to be waiting tables if not for Star Wars

Hayden Christensen and Carrie Fisher aren't exactly great actors and they'd have gone on to be waiting tables if not for Star Wars while Mark Hamill has proven himself as a voice actor. Meanwhile, Harrison Ford, Samuel L Jackson and Liam Neeson have all gone on to do bigger and better things after Star Wars. And Ewan McGregor and Natalie Portman are still working, especially Natalie Portman. You may have heard of movies like Black Swn, Thor and Thor: The Dark World.

I love this idea, but isn't she pretty busy for the next few years filming and doing endless press for another franchise?

While I'm not sure if a Tomb Raider reboot movie is a good idea, I do have to admit that this would be brilliant casting.
