KIM Kardashian is in talks to replace Angelina Jolie in the Tomb Raider movie franchise.
According to Hollywood insiders, the curvy reality TV star is in the middle of negotiations to play video game beauty Lara Croft in a reboot of the film series.
“This will be something very different to Angelina’s Lara,” a source said.
“Kim is wanted to play a far more comic-strip version of Lara which would be shot in 3-D and aimed at a teen audience.”
Yeah, let me just say this is about as bad as ideas go. I don’t much care for the loopy b*tch that is Angelina Jolie, but I’ll be the first to admit that the chick can act and that redounded to Tomb Raider’s (very limited) benefit.
But Kim Kardashian1?? If this is even remotely true, the producers of the next film clearly aren’t a bit serious about the movie itself and they may as well have her swinging from bed posts (hmm) than actually bothering with a ‘story’.2
(And yes: it’s a very, very, very slooooow day.)
1 You’re welcome.

Wait for it:
And that’s where I was, ECM III, when the first manned Martian landing occurred way back in 2030 and your Dad, ECM Jr., was just graduating college…what? Oh, the video is over? Ah, good–I was worried for a minute that it might just go on forever…
