[ April 29th 2002 ]
Big Breakfast presenter Kelly Brook is reportedly
in talks with movie producers to replace Angelina
Jolie as Lara Croft in Paramount Picture's second
Tomb Raider motion picture. Due to begin principal
photography next month at Pinewood Studios, Jolie
- who is finalising the adoption of a Cambodian
baby with husband Billy Bob Thornton - may not
want to re-appear in the action adventure sequel
despite confirming last year she would resume
the role of British aristocrat Lara Croft for
a further two episodes.
Brook is currently preparing to travel to Canada
for a starring role opposite Christopher Lambert
and Ron Perlman in the Hollywood thriller Absolon
which begins shooting in a couple of weeks. Brooks
plays a mysterious woman bent of preventing an
evil gang from stealing the cure to a deadly plague.
No one from either camp were available for comment.
