While Daisy Ridley already nailed her role as Rey in one of the Star Wars franchise's biggest entries, the star of The Force Awakens actor is now in talks to join another reboot: Tomb Raider.

Deadline reports that Ridley may be playing Lara Croft, a role made famous by Angelina Jolie in the early aughts. Croft, an adventurous English archaeologist, is based on her video game character and is heavily crafted after Indiana Jones.

It's too early in the game to get any official news, and the film has been in the works between Warner Bros. and MGM for several years. The video game was revived in 2013, which is cited as the reason to also reboot the movies.
