Jolie upset with Megan Fox over ‘Tomb Raider’ roleJune 24th, 2009 - 1:34 pm ICT by IANS
London, June 24 (IANS) Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie is at war with Megan Fox after she has learnt that the upcoming star might play the lead role in the next “Tomb Raider” film.
Thesun.co.uk reports that the next movie will be a prequel to earlier film and focus on the character Lara Croft’s younger years.
“Angie was intent on reprising her role. She feels it’s something she helped define and feels robbed that it looks likely to be handed to someone who she considers less capable than her,” said a source.
The first two films were very successful earning more than 262 million pounds.
The new movie’s executive producer Dan Lin said: “It is an origin story so it is a younger Lara Croft. It will have character-driven action.”
Jolie doesn’t think the age difference is a good enough reason and doesn’t think much of Fox’s acting either.
“Angie (Angelina Jolie) isn’t a fan of the ‘Transformers’ films and believes Megan won’t do the Lara Croft character justice. She’s also annoyed because she thinks Megan copies everything from her, from her tattoos to her style,” said a source close to the actress.
It is also rumoured that Jolie is working on a another project that will compete with Fox’s effort.
“Angelina is collaborating on a concept with a new sexy female action character which will absolutely blow Megan out of the water,” said an insider.
