After months of waiting and many hopeful choices for casting, Lara Croft has finally been cast in the new Tomb Raider movie in the form of Academy Award Winner Alicia Vikander. Many had thought that Star Wars star Daisy Ridley would be the front runner and thought she had the highest likelihood of being cast. While Vikander is no stranger to action movies (we saw her in Man from U.N.C.L.E earlier this year), it will be nice to see her take the lead in a very iconic action role.
This Tomb Raider is set to follow Lara’s first adventures and will be directed by Roar Uthaug. There is no release date set for Tomb Raider yet.
