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.
