Olivia Wilde: ‘I’d love to play Lara Croft’

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.

Olivia Wilde To Film Haiti Baseball Documentary

Actress Olivia Wilde is planning to turn director after signing on to make a movie about a Haitian children’s baseball team.

The Tron: Legacy star was among the first celebrity aid volunteers to travel to the Caribbean nation in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, which left Haiti devastated, and she admits the journey was an “amazing” experience.

Now, she’s heading back to make a film about a group of young survivors.

She tells America’s Glamour magazine, “I’m going to Haiti to work on a documentary about a Little League team.”

The actress is hoping to turn the trip into an extended vacation, although she’s hesistant to leave so soon after purchasing her first home following her marriage split.

She says, “I’m thinking about travelling, but I should stay in one place. I just bought a house (in Los Angeles).”

Wilde filed for divorce from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli earlier this year (11) after eight years of marriage.

‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot Gets Writers, Olivia Wilde Says ‘No’

The new “Tomb Raider” movie is moving an inch closer to realization. “Iron Man” writing duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby are hired to write the script of the untitled Tomb Raider reboot project. “Mark and Hawk’s clear sensibilities of action and emotion are perfect for the direction we are taking this franchise,” producer Graham King announced.

GK Films, which is owned by King, acquired the rights to the video game adaptation for a new franchise. “We aim to write an origin story for Lara Croft that solidifies her place alongside Ellen Ripley and Sarah Connor in the pantheon of great female action heroes,” Fergus and Ostby stated.

King and his producing partner Tim Headington are aiming for 2013 release for the first film.

Angelina Jolie famously played the character in the 2001 and 2003 movies, and there was a rumor that Olivia Wilde would take over. However, in a recent interview with MTV, Wilde said, “As far as I know right now, I’m not playing Lara Croft. No,” and added later, “That’s really cool that people think I should play her. That’s nice of them.”

Wilde stars in Fergus and Ostby’s latest film “Cowboys and Aliens” which opens in U.S. theaters July 29.

Nylon Magazine Flashback

Planning our annual Young Hollywood issue goes something like this:

The entire staff crashes on Marvin Scott Jarrett’s two big couches, each with a list of emerging actors they think are amazing. We share, we debate, we shriek “I’m so obsessed with her!”… then Marvin and Luke Crisell begin crafting a list of Young Hollywood contenders.

It’s a fun and chaotic process, but apparently it works pretty well – past YH alums have gone onto score Oscar nominations, Tony Awards, fashion campaigns, and box office gold.

With our fifth Young Hollywood issue officially launching tomorrow, we’ve pulled some of our favorite photos from the past five years – a retrospective, if you will, of our favorite Hollywood hotshots as young men and women.
