Olivia WIlde to play Lara Croft in TOMB RAIDER reboot

Olivia Wilde is set to play everyone's favorite Tomb Raiding hottie. French site Cinepop is reporting the that Tron: Legacy star is set to play Lara Croft in a Tomb Raider reboot. The film will reporedly be directed by Mark Fergus (First Snow, and writer of Cowboys & Aliens). Fergus co-wrote the script with Hawk Ostby (Iron Man). AFM kicks off next week, so this is likely to be announced then. 

I remember spending hours and hours playing this game or watching my friends play. The game was fun, but I am sure that the sexy pixelized heroine did not hurt any. Angelina Jolie played the role in the two previous films. Wilde has the looks and the strength to handle this role. More news will be reported here as it becomes available.
