Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley wanted for role of Tomb Raider's Lara Croft

Daisy Ridley, star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is in the running to take the role of Lara Croft in the new reboot of Tomb Raider

Ridley, who starred as Rey in The Force Awakens and who is currently filming the sequel, is one of a number of actresses being considered for the role, according to Deadline. 

The hugely successful video game series that became two blockbuster movies will be rebooted by Roar Uthuag, the director behind the Norwegian disaster drama The Wave. 

Angelina Jolie starred as heroine Lara Craft in 2001's Tomb Raider and 2003's Tomb Raider: Cradle Of Life, but will not be involved in the reboot. As well as Ridley, in recent years, The Maze Runner star Kaya Scodelario and Captain America's Hayley Atwell have been linked with the role of Croft. 

Last week full details of the bonus content for Star Wars: The Force Awakens were unveiled. 

The movie will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on April 18 and the Blu-ray will be accompanied by a string of bonus features. 

As well as the six deleted scenes it had previously been revealed would be arriving with the Blu-Ray, the package will also include a documentary on the making of the movie titled "Secrets Of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey" as well as a recording of the movie's table read.

It will also include a string of 'making of' features including a focus on the making of BB-8 and the movie's new creatures, a look at the recording of John Williams' score and a feature on the changes made to reboot the Star Wars franchise. 

hmv will also be selling Blu-Ray editions of the movie featuring Light-Side and Dark-Side covers. Both are available to pre-order here. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens grossed over two billion dollars at the box office and is available to pre-order on DVD and Blu-Ray on the right-hand side of the page.
