    I have to admit, I was a bit taken aback at first. But then as the idea settled in, I think Megan could pull off being Lara. People just reacting to the Maxim glamor spread, I would submit that in Transformers she did a good job being a strong and capable female protagonist. At times she carried herself with attitude.

    And lets face it, Megan Fox has that smoldering HOTNESS factor going for her. I know some people here just hate the idea that the character has this sex appeal, but face facts. Since the very 1st game, that has been as much a part of Lara as her aristocratic background and archeological vocation. To deny Lara's sex appeal is an exercise in futility. You get Megan with a pony tail (the new Underworld style) and clad her in Lara's signature jungle gear (preferably the Underworld outfit) and she will very much look the part, and I do feel be able to convey the strong, confident, determined, never surrender to defeat persona we are familiar with.

    Given all that I also agree there are other solid choices out there if Angeline continues to show no interest in reprising the role.

    Rhona Mitra - she was the original official Tomb Raider promotional model and has demonstrated capable acting ability. Sure seems logical.

    Kate Beckinsale - an easy transition from her Vampire role in Underworld

    Alison Carroll - right off the bat, she really has the look, more than any other the physical prowess to pull off Lara's moves, and like Rhona, is an official model so there is that logic in the casting. Buuuuuut, while she has mentioned she has an interest in acting, and I am sure she has taken her necessary programs to learn the craft, she is still untested. Do any of us here really know if she can display convincing emotional context to the scenes? (grief over the death of someone she cares about, anger at facing a mercenary that killed that someone and filled with bloodlust, thoughtfulness when approaching a never before seen cultural discovery, genuine laugh at some ironically humorous situation or other... well you get the idea, just shootin off the hypothetical scenarios)

    In any case, if the role does go to Megan Fox, she has my full support. I guess I do believe in her enough to give her the benefit of the doubt and there's potential in her talent to do justice to the beloved icon

    i totally agree with that! they both look great but gets kinda boring, not enough acion yatta yatta

    heyyyy, just had a flash here. But what if Angelina got CG motion capped like she was in Beowulf? Do the whole movie with digital avatars of real actors, that can interact with hyper realistic demons and undead (or what not). And then have Angelina/Lara rising from a pool of water in the buff too.

    OK, I speak in jest here

    Tell me this isn't true! I don't fancy Megan Fox, I don't think she looks as good as people say, and she's even not so talented in my opinion.

    I think Keeley could pull of the LOOKS of Lara.
    And then she's got the voice down.
    It's all a matter of the action and stunts most people are concerned about.
    In both instances, Angie's got EVERYBODY beat in that area.

    She's not the best Lara in my opinion, but if they are going to continue to do live action and stray from CG, just keep her.

    Rhona Mitra so ugly and hated her in doomsday and Underworld 3 she suck sorry

    Some have said the same of Angelina. In acting, it's all about the performance, in the character personality and traits they project on stage.

    I can remember being proven wrong before. When I first heard of Tom Cruise being cast as L'estate in Interview With the Vampire, I had that instantaneous WTF reaction. As someone who had actually read the book, I joined the outcry at how fundamentally WRONG this was, that this "pretty boy" could never pull off the complexity of the character.

    Then the movie came out and I was absolutely astounded. he had done it, he had really REALLY done it. He was amazing. Tom Cruise had so completely blended into the role, I could swear it WAS L'estate come right out of the pages. I applauded Cruise and readily ate my own words

    Now granted we have very little to go on with Megan Fox aside from Transformers and How To Lose Friends and Alienate People, but all I'm saying is; Why not give her a chance? I still do think if we saw her in a pony tail and the trademark Croft exploration outfit, she would certainly look the part. And there's (at the very least) a fair chance she can get the character attitude we come to expect properly portrayed.

    I think she has more of the puffy faced chipmunk look, I personally do not like her acting. So I don't really have any faith that she can pull it off.

    Movie might be worse than the ones with agenlina,granted they werent horrible, but weren't necessarily good either

    ya you could do a lot more

    i think it would be awesome if they did one, i just am afraid that since they havent done one before, it could not be done well

    we'll see i guess
    either way it'll be sweet

    i thought it was amazing(no wesker though ) but anyway, shes too young. the lady from the first two underworld movies would be my favorite choice, otherwise bring back angelina jolie. i like her in foxfire. (dont know if anyones seen that.)
    if you dont like tomb raider, look away from the screen then.

    Megan Fox????.......

    She doesn't fit the part for me. Yes, she's gorgeous... but to me she looks too young. Is that weird?

    I think Angelina Jolie is pretty much the human version of Lara Croft so I'd much rather have her do the next film but whatever... she's taking a break from making movies anyway I think to spend time with her children. Que sera sera.

    I really hope this is a crazy rumor from a random spanish website.

    I totally agree. I've wanted a CGI TR film ever since I saw the first one.

    I haven't seen RE: D yet because it is a Very Long Wait on NetFlix. I REALLY wanna see it though.

    And as far as Megan Fox goes? No. Bring back Angelina or recruit Rhona and THEN I will be happy should they move forward with a live action third film.

    Though Megan Fox is very young, Lara Croft the fictional character is ageless, I'll give her a chance, if this is fact, not rumor. I'd take her over Claudia Black any day. The more I look are her photos, the more I can see the Croft resemblance.


    @RG So your sister adores Shia LeBeouf huh? ROFL. Another comedian from LA turn film star. *Sigh* JK He's alright.

    Keeley Hawes currently has short blonde hair and doesn't even look remotely similar to Lara Croft.

    Megan Fox would make a fantastic Lara, Angelina is taking time off movies for a while.
    Rhona looks like a boar.
    Kate Beckinsale would be great aswell.
    Megan Fox I think would be better than Angelina Jolie.
    She looks like the new Lara from the Avalon Trilogy, her in that new Underworld suit, or even the Legend would be good, pony tail, guns around her legs and she would look like Lara.

    If anyone does the next movie it should be her.
    Does my beard tempt you?

    Thumbs Up

    And I was beginning to think I would be the only one to support, or at the very least give benefit of the doubt, to Megan as Lara

    You know, I think some pics of her in the TRU jungle shorts gear might give the doubters pause to strooooooongly reconsider

    She's gorgeous, if Angeline Jolie could do it, this chick can! Just be happy that they're making a third movie, she'll be stunning . . . you wait and see!
