Although the franchise isn't quite as popular as it was during its heyday, there's little doubt that a new "Tomb Raider" movie could rake in the big bucks. However, what might the fans think if the lovely Angelina Jolie no longer played the heroine?

Well, they might not mind if the rumors are true that "Transformers" super-hottie Megan Fox plans to step into the role. According to European site MeriStation, Fox will indeed replace the curvaceous Jolie to star in an upcoming "Tomb Raider" film, although the movie doesn't yet have a director. Previous movies in the series have produced over $400 million in revenue, and with Hollywood's emphasis on special effects and high-powered action movies these days, there's plenty of incentive to bring Lara back. Besides, the tried-and-true formula – eye-popping action combined with eye-popping ladies – pretty much always works when your target demographic is males aged 16 – 35. It may be a while before this rumor is either proven or denied, but for the sake of argument, we have no problem with the choice. Fox isn't really built like Jolie, but the younger actress certainly seems tailor-made for a movie that requires her to be acrobatic. And besides…there are always implants. 'cough'

Anyway, who here would see the new "Tomb Raider" with Megan Fox starring as Lara Croft? Or if that's a stupid question, who wouldn't watch anything with freakin' Megan Fox in it?

Jesus…why do men think its hot for a woman to be super skinny? Give me a big chest and big ass and im straight. Jolie may not look as pretty as Megan Fox in the face, but she sure did have a better body. Plus jolie can pull off lookin like a chick who can rock your world in a fight and in bed.

I'd be afraid to "do" Megan Fox because my big black mandingo may break her little skinny ass.

IMO, its ok that she looks prettier than jolie, but she better put on a bit more weight and the make-up department needs to make her look a little "harder". And yes Ben…implants would help.

In total agreement with PS3_Wizard here. She looks to small to be a good Lara Croft to me. She is attractive but I like a girl who doesn't look like she pukes after eating the top of a muffin.

Does that mean that they are going to do like the games did and make a prequel now? Have Megan Fox as a younger Lara Croft?

It doesn't really matter to me either way, I've never really liked movies based off video games. Usually nothing more than eye candy with no substance. And the way the games have been selling, will a new movie be all that popular?

Have to wait and see I guess.

Call the movie something else than Tomb Raider. She sucks as an actress so lets just call it like it is, Womb Raider. Everybody loves a girl with dead eyes.

Quite the shame, Angelina IS Lara. It's like the developers modeled her to Jolie. Not complaining though Fox earns her name 10 fold. Although she is going to need a bigger push up bra than Jolie for Lara's hooters

I hate when they bring out movies without the orginal star. I liked angelina as lara croft not saying megan fox wouldnt' do a good job but she's not tomb raider material.

The only reason I'm liking this is because…I FRANKLY HATE ANGELINA JOLIE…I just do – it's a long story and you can bash me all you want but I hate her. In some movies – though she acted pretty well but OH GOD tomb raider movies where just moronic. Her fake english accent – god. It was disturbing.

Either way…um – Tomb Raider is kind of dead IMO, but hey Megan Fox sounds like a pretty good choice.

The movies sucked because we didn't get to play with Angelina Jolie.

The reason why these films suck is because they are basically action films with the only resemblance to the games is the Titles. Hollywood think they can get any adventure script, call the lead character Lara Croft and give the film the Tomb Raider name.
Like the article says, they target males aged 16 – 35, rather than target just the fans of the games, which are probably males aged 16 – 35, lol.
Hollywood's main target audience will be non-gamers, people who are genuinally into action film and who will watch anything with a babe in it.

I'm fine with either, Megans fresh, while Jolie is still a fine looking woman.

Jolie is THE Lara Croft. I think Fox could play her little sister sidekick who turns bad..or stays good..but she wont be as good as Jolie.
