Alicia Vikander Will Play Lara Croft in 'Tomb Raider' Reboot

Following in Angelina Jolie’s footsteps.

Alicia Vikander has big shoes to fill, as she is taking on the role of Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. She follows in the footsteps of Angelina Jolie, who first portrayed the English archaeologist based on the video game character in 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.

Vikander had a stellar 2015, earning an Oscar for her performance in The Danish Girl and starring in Ex Machina among other films. This year will see the Swedish actress in The Light Between Oceans and Jason Bourne. No release date for the Tomb Raider reboot just yet — The Wave’s Roar Uthug will direct, with MGM and Warner Bros. co-producing, so stay tuned.
