It’s a tough one. In her prime Jolie is on that Hollywood symbolic status level. She was damn hot during the Lara Croft years. Thing is with her is not only is she fucken smoking, moves elegantly and can act but she also has that tough/aggressive element which is important for the Lara Croft character. Megan Fox obviously has the sexy thing down but she can’t act and she’s just not kick-ass enough.
I think someone like Rachel Nichols could work but it’s tough. They don’t make em like they used to in Hollywood.[/quote]
I agree, Jolie was perfect for the role - it’s a shame that she was wasted though.
Apparently the film is about Lara Croft’s origins, so the actor they choose needs to be of the right age + they need to be strong enough as a lead. Lara Croft is British, so finding the right person to nail down a good accent is also important.
This film will probably help build the hype for the Uncharted movies as well - both in the similar genre of action/adventure.
