While many Tomb Raider fans were expecting to see Daisy Ridley as Lara Croft, according to hollywoodreporter.com, Alicia Vikander will play the leading role in the upcoming reboot movie.
Daisy Ridley, better known as Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens discussed the role in March 2016, but a report from variety.com confirms that Alicia Vikander was the top choice.
Alicia Vikander, the next Lara Croft, played Ava in Ex Machina, and Alice in Seventh Son, but she is better known for her role in The Danish Girl.
For playing Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl, Alicia Vikander won an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role.
The release date for the next Tomb Raider movie remains unknown for now, but it is known that the film will be a reboot for the franchise.
The last Tomb Raider movie in the series was Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, starring Angelina Jolie as Lara.
