New "Tomb Raider" Movie Coming -- Who Should Be Lara Croft?

media_removed_toofab 2013

Lara Croft
is returning to the big screen -- but who will fill her oh-so-tight t-shirts?

Paramount previously made two "Tomb Raider" movies with Angelina Jolie back in 2001 and 2003, but today MGM acquired the film rights to franchise. 

With the new film sticking closer to the newly released video game -- which highlights a 21-year-old Lara's origin story -- instead of making another sequel, that means Angie's out.

So, who should play her now?

It's a role that will become one of the hottest for any young actress out there in her 20s and 30s and we've already got a few suggestions for whoever's casting.
 
"Grey's Anatomy" star Camilla Luddington is an Internet favorite for the role. The 29-year-old did the voice and motion capture work for Lara in the latest game -- and her performance has been hailed by critics.

And our personal fave? "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke. The young actress is great as Dany, the Mother of Dragons, on the HBO show and we'd love to see her transition to film.

One name we don't want to see attached: Megan Fox. She's the obvious choice just because she looks like Angelina Jolie ... but come on, where's the fun in being obvious?

Check out more suggestions in the gallery above. Who would you like to see in the role? Sound off below!
