Daisy Ridley is hot property right now. Still revelling in her newfound fame from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the British actress is already in talks to star as yet another movie icon. This time it's none than other Tomb Raider's Lara Croft.

The latest reboot of the movie has been in development for years, but it looks like Warner Bros. and MGM are finally kicking it into high gear, and while nothing is certain at this early stage, it can't be argued that Miss Ridley would be pretty much perfect for the role. Last time we saw Lara on screen was 13 years ago with a young Angelina Jolie starring as the leading lady — and just look what it did for her career. Could Daisy be next?

Tomb Raider, which is based on the long-running video game series of the same name, follows the adventures of English archaeologist Lara Croft as she travels the globe, uncovering ancient artifacts and, well, raiding tombs. The new film adaptation is said to be inspired by the recent game reboot which focuses on a younger Lara and her journey to being an ass-kicking adventurer.
