Hayley Atwell keen on Tomb Raider reboot

With the rebooted Tomb Raider videogame riding high in the charts, and a new movie also in the pipeline, it was only a matter of time before speculation began over who will become the next big-screen Lara Croft.

Hayley Atwell is one of the names being proposed by online fans, and the actress has confirmed it would be a project she’d be interested in.

“There's also some kind of online campaign for me to do Tomb Raider Reborn , which I know has just come out as a computer game,” says Atwell. “MGM have the rights to make it into a film, which would be fantastic to do because I'd get to spend a year of my life training hard and pick up all sorts of fantastic fun skills.”

Meanwhile, Atwell will be returning for a small role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier , although she’s remaining predictably tight-lipped about what exactly that will entail.

“They're so tight, the Marvel family, and private,” says Atwell. "I can say that I am involved in some way in the second one. Just know that it's not me being cryptic, it's Marvel. They can just as easily kill me off if I threaten to tell the story before it's time. They're keeping it all under wraps.”

We’ll be able to see for ourselves when Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits UK cinemas on 4 April 2014.
