Following rampant rumors that Daisy Ridley was being eyed for a Tomb Raider reboot, the Star Wars actress herself has confirming that talks are indeed happening behind the scenes.
At London's Empire Awards this past Sunday, Ridley spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and admitted there "have been conversations" about her taking over the role of Lara Croft after Angelina Jolie first brought her to the screen.
Sadly, according to Ridley, there still has not been an official offer:
“I’m waiting for someone to say, ‘I want you, let’s do it.'”
She also revealed that there is still no script. When asked if the two episodes following Star Wars: The Force Awakens could cause scheduling conflicts, she said she would definitely have time to take on another project:
“Absolutely, I’m trying to fill up my calendar.”
Ridley's co-star John Boyega is a huge proponent of this casting choice, but what do you think about Rey becoming one of the most recognizable video game heroes?
Do you want to see Daisy Ridley play Lara Croft?
