It's officially out in the universe - Daisy Ridley said that should would like to star in the return of Lara Croft and Tomb Raider to the box office.

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress made the announcement this past weekend at the Empire Awards. She picked up the best female newcomer award and said that she has been involved in "conversations" about her taking over from Angelina Jolie has Lara Croft. However, she hasn't been offered the role as of yet.

“I’m waiting for someone to say ‘I want you, let’s do it',” she said, adding that there wasn’t a script for the film yet, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

She might not have a lot of time right now because she has been filming the 8th episode of Star Wars. But she said that she does have time for that. "I’m trying to fill up my calendar,” she said.

John Boyega said that he thinks it would be a good idea as well. “I played Tomb Raider the game, it’s a new take and I think the movies are going to be based on that version,” he told THR. “But I texted Daisy [and] was like, ‘this is you!’ and ‘you need to get on that because you could be Lara Croft.’ She should be."

There have been reports in the past that Angelina Jolie would be reprising the role at some point, but she is working more on her directing career.
