by at . Comments

Since the announcement that GK Films has acquired the rights to the Tomb Raider franchise, the web has been buzzing about who should replace Angelina Jolie in the title role that shot the actress further into super stardom.

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider Video Game

Many names have been floating around, including Ashley Greene and Megan Fox.

Click after the jump for our top picks.  Who do you think should be the new Lara Croft?

Actress Anne Hathaway
Actress Jessica Biel
Foxy Megan Fox
Twilight Star Ashley Greene
Sexy Mila Kunis

Anne Hathaway: Anne Hathaway is making her big transition into action films with her latest role as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.  Depending on how well she does in that role, she might be perfect for another high profile action role that will further expand her acting chops and create an even wider range of roles for her.  We would love to see the star in this kind of flick.

Jessica Biel: Jessica Biel can do action movies and she has the body to play the svelte and sexy Lara Croft.  Biel is a talented actress, but for some reason, she hasn't been able to lift herself into leading lady status.  Starring in a couple Tomb Raider movies might be her ticket into the big leagues.

Emily Blunt: We love Emily Blunt and would love to see her take on an action role.  She has a great sense of humor and can deliver sarcastic and edgy lines to a tee - See her performance in both The Devil Wears Prada and The Adjustment Bureau.  She hasn't taken on many action-packed roles and it would be interesting to see if she could take on the part.

Megan Fox: The Angeline Jolie look-a-like would be perfect in the role if filmmakers are looking to replicate Jolie.  She has proven she can act in action films with her starring role in Transformers and she has been a much sought-after actress in the past few years.  This may just be the role she needs to jolt her even further up the Hollywood ladder.

Ashley Greene: This might be the perfect film to get her far away from her Twilight vampire role and onto something completely new.  She has shown she has the action skills with her aggressive fight scenes in the Twilight Saga and she definitely has the right look.

Mila Kunis: The actress proved she can take on the badass lady with a vengeance with her role in Black Swan.  She would be a good fit for the role, but might be a little too tiny to play a strong, leading action star.  We would love to see more of Miss. Kunis though.
