Daisy Ridley has confirmed that she has been in talks to star in a Tomb Raider reboot.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Ridley said there “have been conversations”, but that she has not been offered the role. “I’m waiting for someone to say “I want you, let’s do it.” she said.
Even John Boyega, who played opposite Ridley as Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens wants her to get the role. “I played Tomb Raider the game, it’s a new take and I think the movies are going to be based on that version,” he told THR. “But I texted Daisy [and] was like, ‘this is you!’ and ‘you need to get on that because you could be Lara Croft.’ She should be.”
