Alicia Vikander is Lara Croft.

This was a highly talked about and coveted role amongst women in Hollywood and The Danish Girl star is offically taking on the role.

Many actresses have been rumored to be going out for this role including Star Wars: The Force Awakens lead Daisy Ridley. Sources close to the project have indicated that Viaknder was always the first choice for Croft. The reason this wasn’t announced earlier was that the studio wanted to see a new draft of the script.

Viaknder is known for her Oscar winning performance in The Danish Girl, a breakout role in Ex Machina and can be seen coming up in Jason Bourne and opposite Michael Fassbender in The Oceans Between Us.

The MGM and GK Films Tomb Raider reboot will be directed by Roar Uthaug.

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider originally featured Angelina Jolie in the iconic role as a British archaeologist. It was released in 2001 and a sequel in 2003, grossing over $432 million worldwide.

The Tomb Raider reboot has no release date at this time.
