Last year, Warner Bros. and MGM announced that they would be tackling a film adaptation of the widely popular ‘Tomb Raider’ game series. At first there was some discussion about having Daisy Ridley play the famous tomb plunger, but as time went on Ridley’s schedule couldn’t coincide with the film. After Ridley did not work out, MGM and Warner Bros. found their new Lara Croft in Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander.
