Actress Olivia Wilde has revealed that she is not going to act in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, which will have the script of Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby. Recently, it was rumoured that the actress would reprise the role of Lara Croft in the untitled reboot. She says that she is happy because people think that she deserves the role.
Tomb Raider is an action-adventure game, centring around the adventures of the fictional British archaeologist Lara Croft. Earlier, Angelina Jolie played the character in the 2001 and 2003 movies. The recent reports suggested that Jolie may not be returning to the role of Lara Croft.
Meanwhile, the reports also indicated that Olivia Wilde would essay the role of Lara Croft in the film. But in a recent interview with MTV, the actress has denied the reports. She said, “As far as I know right now, I'm not playing Lara Croft. No. That's really cool that people think I should play her. That's nice of them."
However, with the hiring of Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby as script writers, the Tomb Raider reboot is moving an inch closer to realization. Graham King's GK Films acquired the film rights. King has planned produce the movie with Tim Headington and release it in 2013.
