Rumors have circulated all day that Megan Fox would be replacing Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft in the next Tomb Raider action flick. We went straight to the top to find the answer.
Sorry dreamers - the lovely Fox isn't planning to don the slinky jumpsuit. A spokesperson for Megan Fox denied the rumors to io9, saying, "She's not involved in the movie at all."
I know this is a huge upset to many of you, because who knows how many more thigh holsters Jolie would be willing to strap on, and we totally agree with the idea of putting Fox into Croft's boots. She's got the prerequisite attitude, lips and hips.
Latino Review first leaked the story from Europa Press in Spain that Megan Fox was indeed the next in line to don the long Croft pony tail.
There's no director attached, and I'm not even sure if a third has been greenlit, but Fox does look the part and her success from the Transformers movies means she could finally have her own big name character that could lead to future sequels. The article says that they're looking to shoot in 2010 with a release date of 2011.
As of right now Fox is not the next Croft, but that doesn't mean we can't start a grass-roots campaign to get her in.
