Megan Fox as Lara Croft?
Holy crap, I'm breaking this story before all of the major blogs out there. No offense to Hitfix (the source where I read it and am subsequently referencing), but they're not exactly top shelf when it comes to internet movie news sites.
Megan Fox is rumored to take over Angelina Jolie's role as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider franchise. Seems like some good casting if they want to breathe some new life into the series after a couple of poor attempts (2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and 2003's Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life). The only better way to rebound a series based on a heroine that wears short shorts? Actually writing a good script and hiring a competent director. I know some of you may balk at this suggestion - but how about getting Michael Bay down on this action? At least we know it would be a fun summer movie if he was attached. The original article suggests that the film would start shooting in 2010 for a 2011 release.
