Casting Call: Tomb Raider

This week ushered in the news that the Tomb Raider brand reboot would include a new feature film. While official details are extremely scarce – the project doesn’t have a director, leading lady, or support cast attached as of yet – the internet has already begun to mull over who would best fill the boots of Lara Croft.

What we do know is that the film will star the younger Lara Croft slated to debut in Crystal Dynamics’ upcoming game. This Croft is fundamentally different than the one portrayed by Angelina Jolie on the silver screen. She is young, untested, and less-exploitive in terms of sex appeal. This immediately eliminates some of my personal choices for the role, such as the reprisal of Jolie, Rhona Mitra (who was at one point an official Lara Croft model), or Kate Beckinsale.
Check out Game Informer’s top choices for the fresh-faced Lara below.

Thanks to Tron: Legacy Wilde is an especially hot commodity. A slew of films in post-production seem to indicate that she isn’t slowing down. The 26-year-old actress proved her grit in Tron’s action sequences, and her look is striking in both its natural and glamorized state.

Arterton was vaulted into the spotlight with her role in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, but Quantum of Solace and Clash of the Titans started her on the track to stardom. The 25-year-old is also a UK native, so faking an accent wouldn't be necessary.

The Harry Potter superstar appears to be on a mission to leave wild-haired Hermione behind, pursuing diversity in both her look and acting roles. At 21, Watson is the closest in age to the young Croft, and also shares Lara’s iconic lilt. She’s also proven her ability to command a screen.

As a Tomb Raider fan, I’d be happy with any of actresses above portraying Lara Croft. That being said, I secretly hope for an unknown actress to step in and become the definitive Lady Croft.

The movie will be released in 2013 and we're in 2011. Need I say more?
I think it's way too soon for them to choose an actress.

Peyton List
But I would like for them to go for an unknown British actress , that was not associated with another franchise .

Rhona Mitra.

Yes she was a Lara model...But that was about 12-14 years ago. Rhona is Lara to me, even the new TOMB RAIDER Lara looks like her.

Well all the actresses in the original post have the brown hair, arched eyebrows and high cheekbones so they are facial reminiscent of Lara. To invsetigate further I scanned a picture of the realistic looking Anniversary Lara through Myheritage.com to try and find her celebrity look-a-like so these results came up.

Audrey Tautou (90%)
Charlize Theron (90%)
Denise Richards (90%)
Ali Landry (86%)
Adriana Karembeu (86%)
Jessica Simpson (86%)
Adriana Lima (86%)
Famke Jansen (83%)
Kelly Hu (83%)
Katherine Heigl (83%)

All of them are way too old for the part but hey it's interesting statistics, the only person I'd personally pick out of that list would be Charlize Theron but even she isn't my personal preference. :o

Theres no denying that all three in the GI are well educated and beautiful. They all carry themselves and talk extremely well but theres something special to me about all three my only concern is that they may not be able to carry a full movie on their own and keep the audience entertained.

Everyone wants Olivia! :vlol:


The only thing is she'll be 28/29 during filming and I'm guessing the cut off age will be around 26 like Angelina in the first movie. :o
