They've just made a new Tomb Raider Game to be released soon. They've changed the image of Lara Croft to look more like a real person. In this version she's still attending University so Emma is the perfect age. Also she just said recently that she'd like to play a character that kicks A** the way Hermione did in the last film. They haven't started production for this film yet but if Emma has the time she'd be perfect. It's not stated for production until 2013 so maybe next summer Emma'd have time to shoot it. She also said she'd like to do at least one film a year. I'd love to see her as Lara Croft, I think she'd bring depth to the chracter. Keeping fingers crossed.

Somehow, I don't think they'll replace Angelina Jolie with Emma Watson.

But...maybe.

Can you really imagine her shooting and destroying everything organic and inorganic, moving and stationary? Then, Lara Croft has to look promiscuous, does she not?

Jolie is too old to play the new Lara Croft. The new one will feature a college age Lara and it will show how Lara became who she was. Here is a clip from the game format of Tomb Raider 2011 and you'll see what I mean. :) If this doesn't work just go to youtube and type Tomb Raider 2011 game trailer. That should do it.

That doesn't sound right. At all. It would basically goes against everything Emma has said she wants to do (smaller films, maybe supporting roles... and characters with some depth, not just eye candy).

That character looks like Jennifer Garner in Alias.

Hmm, it's definitly a stretch. I'd have to see a trailer of her in it first. I wouldn't be against it though

My biggest objection would be that Lara Croft for all intends and purposes is/was nothing more than a sex symbol. And I'm fine with that but I wouldn't want to see Emma playing that part. Furthermore videogame movies have not a very good track record for quality.

As much as i love women in kick ass films, Lara Croft is a bad example. Lara Croft in my opinion was made as a sex symbol, nothing more and nothing else.

I personally don't think she will do it and i couldnt see her do it either.

For everyone who's saying that Lara Croft is eye candy and sex symbol and dangerous and too femme fatale for Emma to play, or that Emma must always play the pretty little lady and a character with "depth"-- i disagree.
An actor mustn't always pick the roles that are suitable for themselves or that they're close to their personality. An actor is a master of disguise, they do many different parts and i believe a good actor can play every role.

Now i wouldn't like to see Emma as Lara, mostly because i have like a million different people in my head suitable for the part, but that's all. If Emma indeed was to play the part i'd still go see it and i believe she'd have a good performance.

I'm sorry, but I don't see it. I don't think that type of role is for her. Angelina Jolie is the right type because she is tall, slim and sorta muscley. Emma is slim but she isn't tall enough. I think the main lead would have to have a bit of a hard agressive nature and acting type and around Angelina's age with a ' ultra sexy' image. Emma is gorgeous and sexy, but Angelina is considered to be ultra sexy and is famous for it. I can't see men wanting to see Emma as an action hero. I don't think Emma would do a terrible job at it, but I don't think it would be something that really is right for her type of acting style.

Emma has done some action sequences with Harry Potter. Somehow, I can imagine her doing stuff like that, since she's done action scenes before, you know?

But I think Emma is wanting to do some low key, non Harry Potter related stuff. So I somehow can't picture her accepting something like this.

Producers and Directors "reinvent" movies and lead roles all the time these days.....maybe Emma would be an all "new" kind of Lara.
I think she would accept an offer like that only from a very few directors she trusts and with a script that is really good. Maybe that is the tough part about it.

P.S. : Appearing like someone she is not is her job ;) (regarding the promiscuous & shoot-stuff-up part)

True, a talented actor/actress should be having multiple roles and casts in different types of character... It would be interesting to see Emma in an action-oriented film or media but I agree that the Tomb Raider series is definitely not a good choice for Emma. I can't even imagine Emma as Lara Croft LOL.

I can't imagine Emma as Lara Croft. She isn't the right person to play her.
