Alicia Vikander Is the New Lara Croft

The upcoming Tomb Raider reboot has finally cast its main character – and it’s not who you thought it was going to be (Daisy Ridley). According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alicia Vikander, current it-girl and face of Louis Vuitton, has signed on to play the infamous Lara Croft. She won an Academy Award for her supporting role in The Danish Girl and we’re super excited to see how she fills the shoes of the iconic 1996 Lara Croft who was played by Angelina Jolie.

Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug will direct the film and Geneva Robertson-Dworet has signed on to be the screenwriter.
