Angelina Jolie will be reprising her role as Lara Croft in "Tomb Raider 3" reports Britain's The Daily Express.
Jolie will be required to start training almost immediately after her new child's birth. Jolie is currently residing in Nambia with Brad Pitt and their two adopted children awaiting the birth of their child.
The creator of the game and character, Ian Livingstone told the newspaper that "Paramount has optioned it and Angelina has agreed to star in the third", whilst a source"Angelina is already in training to make sure she gets rid of her post-pregnancy bulge. She wants to be in tip-top shape and look better in Lara's outfit than ever".
Despite both previous "Tomb Raider" films getting a critical drubbing, the films took in $274 million and $156 million in their theatrical runs and did booming business on DVD. The gaming franchise, which suffered from poor sequels, bounced back in recent weeks with the new release "Tomb Raider: Legend" landing in top sales spots around the globe and enjoying very good reviews.
Jolie is also presently attached to a variety of projects including two further sequels next year - "Sin City 2" and "Ocean's Thirteen".
