Daisy Ridley Up For “Tomb Raider” Reboot

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” actress Daisy Ridley has reportedly joined a list of potential contenders to star in the upcoming cinematic reboot of the “Tomb Raider” franchise at Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM.

Deadline broke the story, saying no proper conversations have been had, Ridley is just one of a handful of actresses being considered for the role in the movie which Roar Uthaug (“The Wave”) is set to direct from a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet (“Transformers 5”).

The new film is slated to follow the mold of the 2013 game reboot and its 2015 sequel which follow the earlier days of Lara Croft and has a much more gritty and human tone to its story of the daredevil archaeologist.

Ridley is currently in the middle of filming “Star Wars: Episode VIII” and has “Star Wars: Episode IX” on her schedule.
