Megan Fox is tipped to play a young Lara Croft in a new ‘Tomb Raider’ movie.
Executive producer Dan Lin is planning an “origin” story of the popular action franchise based on the computer game of the same name, and said it would be a “no brainer” to consider Megan for the daredevil archaeologist role made famous by Angelina Jolie.

“I really don’t know anything about being single yet, really,” she says. “I’ve sort of isolated myself and forced myself to sit and be quiet. I’ve been reading a lot and listening to music and trying just to work on myself.
“I was with someone from the time I was 18 so I’ve never been my own, independent adult. I’ve never been forced to take care of myself. I’ve always had someone doing that for me.
“Right now there’s no space in my head for who’s going to be next or how I need to fill my time. I’m just trying to be comfortable with who I am before I get into another relationship where I’ll just repeat the cycle and I will have 10 failed relationships. Continue reading Megan Fox is a lone wolf
