Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander has just been cast to star in the next Tomb Raider. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Vikander will play a young Lara Croft setting off for her first adventure in the upcoming Warner Bros. film. Norwegian director Roar Uthaug (The Wave) is attached to direct.
Vikander is making a serious impression in Hollywood these days. The Swedish actress earned the Best Supporting Actress Oscar this year for her turn in The Danish Girl. She also picked up two nominations at this year's BAFTAs for both The Danish Girl and last year's acclaimed sci-fi thriller Ex Machina. There's no word yet on who else will join her on the project, but it's a big deal for her blossoming career.
