If there was a film that cemented Angelina Jolie as an international and highly bankable star it was 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and now another Oscar winner is set to carry the mantle in an adaptation of the popular video game.

Alicia Vikander is hot off her Best Supporting Actress Oscar win earlier this year, and with a role in Paul Greengrass’ upcoming Jason Bourne film, her star is only set to rise more. It was reported yesterday that Vikander has signed on to play Lara Croft, though a more green version who is set to face her first adventure.

This is quite a departure for Vikander, who is mostly known for her brilliant dramatic performances rather than big action set pieces, but there’s no doubt she’ll own the role as she always does.
