The story of Lara Croft, played by Angelina Jolie, will start on the big screen in two years and will be produced by famous Graham King through his company GK Films. Heroine of the ’90s video games will come to life in a new series, whose first film is scheduled to be launched in 2013.
The good news ends here for Angelina Jolie fans because American actress is uninterested to play ths role again.
There are rumors saying that Angelina is too old for this new production and the producer Graham King wants to revitalize the story and create “daring new adventures for the young and dynamic Lara Croft”.
So without Angelina Jolie young actresses like Megan Fox, Olivia Wilde or Vanessa Hudgens might be an options for producers.
