The prequel will focus on Lara Croft's younger years. And therefore, the Oscar-winner has been given the boot in favour of the fresh-faced Megan, reports The Sun. A source said: "Angie was intent on reprising her role. She feels it''s something she helped define and feels robbed that it looks likely to be handed to someone who she considers less capable than her."
The new movie''s executive producer, Dan Lin, told about.com: "It is an origin story so it is a younger Lara Croft. It will have character-driven action." A source added: "Angie isn''t a fan of the Transformers films and believes Megan won''t do the Lara Croft character justice. She''s also annoyed because she thinks Megan copies everything from her, from her tattoos to her style."
