Back in March, a report surfaced that Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) was one of many actresses under consideration for the role of Lara Croft. You can put those Indiana Jones/Han Solo comparisons to bed, because another actress has scored the role.
Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl, Ex Machina) will be playing Lara Croft in an upcoming MGM and GK Films picture. Roar Uthaug, who has directed a number of Norwegian films, will be behind the camera.
Vikander will be appearing in the upcoming Jason Bourne. No release date has been set for the film.
