Olivia Wilde tweets denial of ‘Tomb Raider’ Lara Croft casting rumor

The initial story stated that The “Tron Legacy” actress Olivia Wilde is stepping into the role previously adorned by Angelina Jolie in the “Tomb Raider” reboot, says Brazillian site Cinepop.

Wilde reportedly confirmed the casting in an interview with the site, adding that Mark Fergus (“First Snow”, writer of “Cowboys & Aliens”, which Wilde was in) is directing the flick. Fergus co-wrote the script with Hawk Ostby (“Iron Man”).

Wilde, who career has gone from strength-to-strength since playing the lesbian bartender in Calisoap “The OC”, says she’s a fan of the character – who originates from the pixels on a video-game monitor – and is looking forward to raiding tombs on the big screen.

“Hey internet, I’m not the new Lara Croft. But I’ve seen about 23 drag queen impersonators tonight in new york so all is well!”

Wilde would “love” to play the role, but nothing is official yet.
