The Aussie actress Sharni Vinson is the latest Hollywood beauty to reveal that she is interested in the role as Lara Croft. The fit “Step Up 3-D” actress admits in a promotional interview with “Flicks and the City” for her upcoming thriller “You’re Next”, she looks forwards to any role that requires her to be physical.
“When it comes to physical roles, I just thrive on that and something like the Lara Croft series would just be amazing because it’s the same type of female empowerment that we’re trying to get across and I think is just a stand-up role model for all women out there.”
“If I could be the one that can portray that and hopefully kickstart that off again in this generation, that would be amazing,”
Vinson mentioned she would love to have crack at the female hero character Elektra as well, saying:
“Give me Elektra, something cool. I have fun coming on to sets, it’s kind of like dress up … When it comes to those types of superhero movies, it would be fun to come in and put on, like, the red lycra red catsuit,”. “So somebody, give me the chance to do it.”
You’re Next – Synopsis:
When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped…until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.
