Wow, this casting makes PERFECT sense!

We had no idea who would be capable of filling Angelina Jolie's hiking boots — not to mention squirrel suit — as the new Lara Croft in a proposed Tomb Raider reboot.

But after seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we're totally sold on Daisy Ridley as the British archaeologist — and so are producers!

According to Deadline, the rising star is leading a shortlist of actresses in contention for the action-adventure role, and has even had conversations with Warner Bros and MGM about it!

The next film will reportedly serve as both a reboot and a sort-of prequel, in line with the latest batch of hit video games that follow a young Lara on her first adventures.

Considering all the fighting, climbing, and puzzle-solving we saw Rey do in The Force Awakens, she seems like a spot-on choice!

What do YOU think of Daisy as the next Lara Croft??
