When you think of a beautiful, tough, can-kick-your-arse woman who pretty much just jumped into real life from the pages of a comic, who comes to mind? If it’s Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft, we really couldn’t blame you.
But now that we know who’s in talks to replace Jolie as the popular character, we’ve got to say there may be a new name jumping to mind.
What do you think of… Daisy Ridley? Because we’re behind it all the way.
Obviously Ridley won our hearts in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, making us jealous of little girls everywhere who get to grow up with such a cool hero. It only makes sense that she helm an equally epic and female-powered role for her next gig, right?
Luckily for us, Ridley has now confirmed that there have been talks about her joining Tomb Raider, although she hasn’t been officially offered the role.
“I’m waiting for someone to say ‘I want you, let’s do it’,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
Why haven’t they, is what we have to say about it.
We guess it is a little early for these kinds of decisions to be officially made, given the fact that there’s no script yet and that Ridley is still kind of busy with the Star Wars franchise.
Still, if we had our way we’d cast her immediately. Now that we know what she can do with a lightsaber, we’re dying to know how she’d rock an assault rifle or a bow.
