MEGAN FOX is lined up for an action-packed new role – she is slated to take over from ANGELINA JOLIE as gun-toting movie tough girl LARA CROFT.
Reports suggest the Transformers beauty will replace Jolie in the next film in the Tomb Raider franchise.
London’s Metro newspaper claims insiders are tipping Fox as a “strong candidate” for the role of the sexy action heroine
Jolie played the part in 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and in the sequel Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life in 2003.
Both films were panned by critics, and Jolie was given a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress for her performances in the two movies.
