With Tomb Raider also getting a series reboot, word is that Transformers babe Megan Fox is being eyed as the next Lara Croft after Angelina Jolie. But reports say Ms Jolie is a bit pissed off at the choice.
Read on to find out what Jon Voight, Angelina’s father, has to say about Megan Fox after the jump.
According to The Sun (yes, we know), mega star Angelina Jolie is peeved that Transformers actress Megan Fox is being mentioned as her Tomb Raider replacement.
The Tomb Raider franchise is getting a cinematic reboot with Dan Lin, the movie’s producer, saying, “It is an origin story so it is a younger Lara Croft. It will have character-driven action.” This is the third film in the Tomb Raider movie series — the last one was in 2003.
A source tells The Sun (yes, yes, we know) that Jolie was originally keen to reprise her role as Lara Croft in the blockbuster film franchise, but now “feels robbed”. “Angie isn’t a fan of the Transformers films and believes Megan won’t do the Lara Croft character justice,” the source adds. “She’s also annoyed because she thinks Megan copies everything from her, from her tattoos to her style.” (But will she copy Jolie’s cool mom status?)
Back in January, a spokesperson for Megan Fox stated, “Megan is not involved in this movie.” So either Jolie is getting upset for no reason or The Sun is making up shit for no reason. Or maybe Megan Fox is actually involved in this movie.
Regardless, the really important question is what does Angelina Jolie’s father, actor Jon Voight, think? “They’re both very beautiful and they’re both kind of sexy girls.” Thanks, Jon!
