Original Tomb Raider Fought For ‘Dangerous’ Angelina Jolie
As Alicia Vikander prepares to draw back her bow for Tomb Raider, the director of 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider remembers how hard it was to cast Angelina Jolie in the original role.
As a piece of noughties nostalgia, neither Tomb Raider or sequel The Cradle of Life are remembered particularly fondly. With two thinly-veiled storylines and indistinguishable love interests played by Daniel Craig and Gerard Butler, it is pretty hard to tell the two movies apart. That being said, Jolie’s casting as a prim-and-proper archeologist sporting hot pants and pistols certainly helped the franchise’s A-list status. Apparently, though, it could’ve all been completely different.
