Okay, so almost everyone will own up to the fact that the Tomb Raider films with Angelina Jolie pretty much blew and most definitely could foresee a reboot happening.  However, recently it has been rumored that the hottie from House, Olivia Wilde may be playing the lead role of Lara Croft in the upcoming films.

Apparently, Wilde’s performance in Tron is what sources say made them want her for the role (are we sure it wasn’t that suit?).  In all seriousness though, I really dig Wilde and most definitely think she would make a great Laura Croft.  She’s a great combination of sexy, sass, and action star to pull it off.

So why exactly make a reboot of Tomb Raider?  Possibly to salvage the name and finally make some good movies to represent it.  It is reported that,

“This would be a far darker and more serious Tomb Raider movie, the idea is to get a top director and an intelligent script and make this an empowering character for women as well as a popular one with men.

Although Wilde’s rep is denying the rumor but there is nothing solid saying for sure that Wilde is not set to play the role.  So do you guys think Wilde would make for one badass Tomb Raider??
