Daisy Ridley in Running for Lara Croft Lead in Tomb Raider Reboot
Daisy Ridley has certainly made quite a name for herself as Rey in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, and now, she may be taking on a whole new type of action role.  The 23 year old is currently in the running to star a new Tomb Raider film as Lara Croft.

No negotiations have been officially discussed yet, and it is said that the producers are keeping their options open.  The role was originally played by Angelina Jolie, which could be a tough act to follow. 

The reboot has been in development for a few years,  and may follow the storyline of Croft in her younger years as an archeology student.

In the meantime, Ridley is certainly keeping busy. She is currently filming  Star Wars: Episode VIII.
