Some thought Daisy Ridley of Star Wars would get the role. Is this a better choice?
Warner Bros. and MGM’s upcoming Tomb Raiderreboot has found its Lara Croft in Alicia Vikander.
According to Variety, the Oscar-winning actress who starred in The Danish Girl and Ex Machina was always the studio’s top choice, despite reports that Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley was being considered. Sources have told the outlet the studio was waiting for a new draft of the script before making Vikander’s involvement official.
