Alicia Vikander Cast As Lara Croft For Tomb Raider


Alicia Vikander has been cast as Lara Croft in an upcoming Tomb Raider reboot.

Vikander is best known to community for her role as the artificially intelligent being in Ex Machina. She is also known for her roles in The Man From U.N.C.L.E., The Danish Girl, and A Royal Affair. She'll also be appearing alongside Matt Damon in Jason Bourne later this year.

Roar Uthaug (The Wave) will be directing the new Tomb Raider film which will tells the story of a young and untested Lara Croft fighting to survive her first adventure. Graham King is on board to produce.

Earlier reports suggested that Star Wars' Daisy Ridley was in talks for the role but those rumors can be put to rest now.
