Kim Kardashian to play Lara Croft?

A "more comic strip version" of her. 

Rumours are swirling that the Tomb Raider movie franchise is getting a "reboot", with TV star Kim Kardashian signing up to turn it off and turn it back on again.

That's according to ShowbizSpy, which says Kardashian is in talks to star as Lara Croft in the next film.

"Hollywood insiders" are quoted as saying, "This will be something very different to Angelina’s Lara. Kim is wanted to play a far more comic strip version of Lara which would be shot in 3D and aimed at a teen audience."

ShowbizSpy points out that Kardashian has previously said she would "really love to make movies". Well then.
