Sharing a lot in common with Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox has been hit with rumors that she will be the next Lara Croft in the next "Tomb Raider" installment. In a report by PSX Extreme, European site MeriStation has claimed that the "Transformers" actress has been favored to take on the heroine role first brought to the big screen by Jolie in 2001.

If the 22-year-old indeed replaces the "Wanted (2008)" actress, she will most likely appear in "Tomb Raider 3". While the rumbling is yet to be proven true or false, Fox's camp has not come out with any denial or confirmation and the next "Tomb Raider" movie is still seeking for a director to work on the project.

Megan Fox was known for her role as Sydney Shanowski in television sitcom "Hope & Faith". She made her big break in the movie industry when landed the role of Mikaela Banes in 2007 blockbuster "Transformers". She has recently starred alongside Jeff Bridges, Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst in "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People". She will next be seen in "Jennifer's Body" and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen".

The original "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" is a film adaptation of the Tomb Raider video game series. The 2001 movie is directed by Simon West and places Angelina Jolie as the titular character, Lara Croft. Successfully becoming the fourth-highest debut of 2001, it was then followed with a sequel, "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" in 2003.

No, No, No... You can't replace Angelina Jolie for Megan Fox. Megan Fox just looks slutty and just plain out too sissy for the role of Lara Croft. Lara Croft is an adventurer not a fashion model, who cares if Megan Fox is "Hot" she bought it all anyways... I would be pissed if Megan Fox got the part, Angelina all the way son~ Angelina is the hottest thing around and always will be, so get over it~

and NO angelina does NOT have ANY class. she is a control whore and a lying manipulative cunt. and do u not think she replaced someone else that was older and washed up and aging and ugly? so why shouldnt megan fox replace her? it nobody replaced anyone in the movies, we wouldnt have movies cuz everyone would be dead. but its ok for dane cook and will farrell and the stupid kids from superbad and juno to replace adam sandler and jim carrey and the REAL comedians?

HAHAHAHAHAHAAH YOU CALLED MEGAN FOX A WHORE???? angelina fucks multiple men AND women while she's married to a guy that she had an affair with while he was married to an honest, innocent, loving woman. she needs to control men and make herself be a total whore. i STOPPED playing tomb raider when it came out. i was PISSED they chose that dumb slut and i had just gotten tomb raider revelations. i NEVER touched it to this day. it was a gift from my brother cuz he knew i loved the series and i even still have a limited edition ps1 memory card in the shape or lara croft. the REAL lara croft. not angelina. and she's ugly and her lips look like they were chewed up and spit out by a dog. maybe it was one of the dogs from tomb raider 2. AND megan fox can count on 1 hand how many people she's slept with. angelina can count on the population of a third world starving country how many people she's banged

In no way should Anelina be replaced, she did too good of a job being Lara Croft. I've been playing the games since I was nine and have been a loyal fan. I will be so pissed if they replace her with that whore. The only reason the producers want Megan is to attract all the jerk offs that will pay to see the movie so they can drool on the screen.

The only way I believe she would be able to play a part in the TR3 if there is one in motion? this is the first I have heard of it... My dad has some of the games and I remember being pissed at one point because I was playing the younger Lara... Maybe Megan could play a younger role of Lara in a flashback scene or as part of Lara's history TEAM ANGELINA to carry on the role she began though! A truly beautiful woman...

i so agree! i love both but come awn id be so fucking pissed if i found out if the so called "younger hotter version" of me was playing in MY movies. yes megan fox is gawgeous BUT angelina jolie is the worlds most authentic, and beautiful women. shes got style, class, and is a great actress. she was here first and has made a ton more box office movies than megan fox. so no i think the tomb raider movies are angelinas therefore she shouldnt have to be replaced.

it true nobody can replace her, her action a always there 4 her. nobody should replace her, she's not 2 old 4 any part.

All I can is, Angelina Jolie will always be the original "Lara Croft". Her replacements are just the second rated, unoriginal, copycats.

c'mon look at jolie, she needs to be replaced. yeah, she's still beautiful, but she's just getting too old. way too much more work for the movie to have to get rid of her wrinkles and hire more extra's to do stuff that she wouldn't be able to do. i agree, fox and young and hot, and in ways they do look similar, so she'd be good for it
