Olivia, whose recent nerd-cred has sprouted thanks to Tron: Legacy, Cowboys and Aliens, and most recently in the Andrew Niccol directed In Time was “confirmed” to be involved in the reboot by Brazilian site Cinepop. Well, you can chalk this up to Hollywood hootenanny, because Olivia answered the nagging question through everyone’s favorite 140 character news space, her Twitter account:
Now, don’t get us wrong or anything, a new Tomb Raider movie is going to happen soon — producer Graham King of GK Films won the rights to the film and is looking towards a release date sometime in 2013. Angelina Jolie, the original Lara Croft, has passed on throwing on another tight one-piece suit, so the leading lady role is still up for grabs.
While it kills my boner, I’m so glad this got debunked. She would have been horrible as ‘Lara Croft’.
