Fox Won't Take Over Tomb Raider Role
MEGAN FOX is determined not to be hailed as the next ANGELINA JOLIE - she has side-stepped a role as gun-toting movie tough girl LARA CROFT.
Industry insiders tipped the Transformers beauty to replace Jolie as the sexy action heroine in the next outing of the franchise, adapted from the popular video game.
But Fox's representative is adamant the actress won't be stepping into Jolie's boots.
A spokesperson for the star says, "Megan is not involved in this movie."
Plans for the third film - a follow-up to 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003's Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life - are still going forward as producers cast a new villain and love interest, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
