Daisy Ridley In Talks To Play Lara Croft

Daisy Ridley has publicly confirmed for the first that she has been approached to play Lara Croft in a new adaptation of the Tomb Raider series – paving the way for all manner of ‘Tomb Rey-der’ puns.

Speaking to Empire’s Chris Hewitt at the Jameson Empire Awards – where she took home a gong, for Best Female Newcomer – the 23-year-old star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens acknowledged that “there have been conversations”.

The actress was first linked to the role earlier this month, but had not commented on the reports until now. Choosing her words carefully (“I was not told how to answer this question!”), Ridley said she had been having several meetings about the role, “but meetings don’t mean you’re going to do the film”.

She did, however, recognise the swell of fan support for the casting idea – ”everyone seems to be very excited about the idea” – but clarified that the project was still in its very early stages. “I don’t even think there’s a script yet.”

The Tomb Raider series debuted in 1996 and became the signature game for the then-fledgling PlayStation console. Two films based on the series have already been produced, with Angelina Jolie in the title role: 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and its 2003 sequel The Cradle Of Life.

Casting a younger actress to play the adventurer would chime with the 2013 reboot of the game, which went for an younger origin story and transformed Lara Croft’s cartoonish features and comically conical chest into something more realistic.

Whether or not Ridley ends up as the grave-digging archeologist, she has plenty to keep her busy - filming is currently underway on Star Wars: Episode VIII, due for release in December. And Episode IX will keep her occupied shortly after that – it’s due for release in 2019.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
