Olivia Wilde is the new Lara Croft in Tomb Raider redo?

EDIT: Olivia Wilde has just tweeted that this is false!

Hey internet, I’m not the new Lara Croft. But I’ve seen about 23 drag queen impersonators tonight in new york so all is well!

“Tron Legacy” actress Olivia Wilde is stepping into the padded-bra previously adorned by Angelina Jolie in the “Tomb Raider” reboot, says french site Cinepop.

Wilde reportedly confirmed the casting in an interview with the site, adding that Mark Fergus (“First Snow”, writer of “Cowboys & Aliens”, which Wilde was in) is directing the flick. Fergus co-wrote the script with Hawk Ostby (“Iron Man”).

Wilde, who career has gone from strength-to-strength since playing the lesbian bartender in Calisoap “The OC”, says she’s a fan of the character – who originates from the pixels on a video-game monitor – and is looking forward to raiding tombs on the big screen.

Guessing this one might be officially announced at AFM…
