Megan Fox Talks Tomb Raider

Posted by No_Name_ (16193 posts) - - Show Bio

Since sometime last year, Fox has endured rumors surrounding her and the prospect that she will be taking the reigns of the next Tomb Raider film. Tomb Raider, which started as a popular video game created by Eidos, was developed into a long standing comic book, and then shot onto the big screen. The first film, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider went on to gross $131 million domestically. I can see why Fox would feel that Jolie's are some pretty big shoes to fill! She stated that not only has the role not been offered to her, but that she also wouldn't dream of taking over the franchise.

Fox told a cluster of reporters, according to scifi wire that it's a complete rumor. No one has offered her the role of Lara Croft or even spoken to her about it. "I think that's a role that Angelina Jolie mastered, and I would never attempt to take that over from her," Fox said.

Somehow, I have a feeling that if they were planning on expounding on the franchise, that Fox would certainly be a good candidate for the next Lara Croft. No offense, but I don't personally think it takes an overwhelming amount of acting ability to play Lara, maybe it's just me. However, is Jolie really that old for the role? I don't think so. 

Let's end this article with a little bit of funny Megan Fox news, since we all love her so much! You may have seen the picture above floating around the internet of a boy, clearing attempting to hand Fox a rose, and she, blatantly blowing him off. In an interview with, Fox addresses the hilarious and somewhat sad photograph. Take a look.

One thing I have noticed about Megan Fox, the more she talks, the less I think she is attractive.

.... I don't even know what to say anymore.

I feel like i'm repeating myself when I say that I truly, truly dislike megan fox. I don't see why people make such a big deal about her. Wait, I take that back its because people only care about they way she looks, other than her looks she's got nothing going for her. I don't see this great actress in her, but hey maybe I'll be shocked one day.

Fox + Croft = BAD

@Tyler Starke: Dude if I was a producer in Hollywood I would cast her in every role imaginable just to be able to watch her run around. Can you imagine, "Clifford the Big Red Dog.... starring Megan Fox as Clifford."

@Babs: I'm glad I could brighten your day, Tyler Starke gave me the idea to start a thread for these you should check it out. Future Roles of Megan Fox

I think AJ maybe has one left in her, but she isn't aging well, and isn't going to look young enough without CGI for much longer. MF would be an excellent replacement for the part.

Aw come on!  Seriously!  WTF!  I keep hearing all this about Megan Fox wanting to do all these roles which is cool and all but the question remains, is she even that good of an actor?  I have not seen her in anything, except Transformers, and for her to try and taken on some of these roles, I'm just not sure she can hack it.

It doesn't matter to me if Megan Fox is Lara Croft.This isn't a sacred role.Lara Croft is dead.I didn't care about her when Tomb Raider was hot and I don't now.Oh and i'm sick of people b#tching about Megan Fox.If you want a good Tomb Raider movie..there are some perfectly good ones with Angelina Jolie in them you can watch.
