Yes on Tomb Raider Reboot, No on Megan Fox
Posted 01.29.09 by Ryan
Mere days ago, speculation had Megan Fox possibly replacing Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft in a possible 3rd entry to the Tomb Raider series. Now a few reports have come out to clear up the "possible" rumors.
First, a reboot of the series is in development, says The Hollywood Reporter. Warner Bros., and not Paramount, who made the first two Tomb Raiders, is looking to completely retell the Lara Croft origin story with a new love interest and villain, and, presumably, a renewed dedication to hotness when looking for the new Lara Croft. So that makes Fox a lock, right? Right?
Not so, says io9, who were told by a spokesperson for Megan Fox that "She's not involved in the movie at all." She also won't be Wonder Woman. But don't worry, Photoshop-savvy Megan Fox fans. With the movie still in development, and no writer or director attached yet, Fox is still a, well, possibility.
