Ever since Angelina Jolie's final Lara Croft film, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, it's been widely rumored that we were supposed to be getting another Tomb Raider movie pretty soon. But that "pretty soon" has been years and years of fans just waiting...patiently and maybe not quite so. Many video games have come out since, but again, it's been rumored that we're to be getting another movie..Finally! Below you'll find 6 actresses who would make a great Lara Croft!

1. Daisy Ridley

The 23-year-old actress hasn't had a lot of acting credits/roles to her name, but her most recent role, and probably the biggest, was Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She'll also be reprising her role as Rey, in 2017's Star Wars: Episode VIII, which has started filming recently.

I think Daisy would make a good Lara Croft because she's young, talented (she bossed her role as Rey, and didn't really have any acting experience), she's English, which Lara is, and she's already shown that she can handle a pretty big role.

2. Margot Robbie

The 25-year-old Australian actress started with independent films, and her official "big break" per say was in 2013's The Wolf of Wall Street. She'll appear as Jane Porter in The Legend of Tarzan and in Suicide Squad as Harley Quinn, which will both come out later this year.

Margot would be great because she's also young, talented, has a kind of seductive appearance about her (which Lara has, even though shes a video game character), she hasn't really had the chance to have a major role in anything, so this could be good for her, and the fact that she is Australian.

3. Lauren Cohan

She's best known for her role as Maggie Greene on the popular show The Walking Dead. The 34 year old had also appeared in The Boy which hit theaters recently, Death Race 2 in 2010, and some others.

Lauren hasn't had that big role thing like many of these actresses, she's beautiful, talented, she too has a seductive look about her, and Lauren has a little British about her also.

4. Emilia Clarke

Emilia, 29, is best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series Game of Thrones. She played Sarah Connor in last year's Terminator: Genisys.

Emilia is quite talented, brave (she's done nudity for crying out loud!), beautiful, and needs a major role to add to her credits.

5. Olivia Wilde

Olivia is well known for her role as Dr. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley in the television show House, which ended in 2012. The 31-year-old has also appeared in movies like Tron: Legacy, The Change-Up, Cowboys & Aliens, and Rush.

Olivia needs to stop being in damsel in distress types of roles (she needs a role where she isn't), she's beautiful and quite talented.

6. Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka, 33, won the Miss World pageant in 2000. She's an Indian film actress, singer, producer, and philanthropist, best known for Quantico, Bajirao Mastani, Mary Kom, Dil Dhadakne Do, and Barfi!

Priyanka hasn't really been in anything American...or British, so a role like this could bump up what kind of films she could appear in. She's beautiful and talented (as you can see).

Part 2 Will Be Coming Soon!
