Ready for the Lara Croft Reboot?

Angelina Jolie pretty much left her mark as one of the fiercest female action leads in the world by robustly depicting Lara Croft: The Tomb Raider in two films. Yes! I agree very well that the persona Jolie brought to the character was completely awesome and to-die-for. But  now that producers propose for a reboot of the successful video game-derived action film, Jolie seems to be partly unfitting for the part anymore. Of course! Jolie's beauty and elegance is obviously timeless, but there were certain things she lost as she aged. Good to say, that it ain't a problem because again producers are planning to cast another actress equally fierce and bad-ass as Jolie, no other than the sexy Olivia Willde. The lovely Wilde has appeared in a number of popular films and shows, including Tron: Legacy, Cowboys & Aliens, House, Skin and the Girl Next Door.  
"This would be a far darker and more serious Tomb Raider movie, the idea is to get a top director and an intelligent script and make this an empowering character for women as well as a popular one with men," an anonymous source (allegedly) close to the reboot told TheFanCarpet.
"Olivia is just one of the names being suggested for the lead role. She would appear to be ideal."
Yeah, Olivia Wilde is hella hot, but can she actually replace the immutable Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft?
