Olivia Wilde has said that she would love to play Lara Croft in the planned reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise.
In an interview with MTV, the actress also revealed that she hasn’t been approached to star as the character made famous on film by Angelina Jolie.
“That would be so awesome,” she said. “I love Lara Croft.
“As far as I know right now, I’m not playing [her]. But that’s really cool that people think I should.”
The Tron: Legacy star will next be seen in cinemas as Ella in Cowboys & Aliens, which also features Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford. In addition, she recently polled fifth in FHM UK’s 2011 ‘Sexiest Woman in the World’.
Wilde can currently be seen as Dr. Remy Hadley (aka Thirteen) in the Fox medical drama House, which was renewed for an eighth season yesterday.
