2016 Academy Awards: Alicia Vikander (aka Belle) Looks Gorgeous in Yellow Louis Vuitton
Alicia Vikander looks stunning on the Oscars red carpet, and eerily similar to everyone's famous Disney princess: Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

The Swedish beauty is about to take on the role of the sexy, globetrotting adventurer!

Move aside, Angelina Jolie! The role of the headstrong archeologist and explorer is going to the Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander.

The Hollywood Reporter has more:

The movie project, which has Roar Uthaug (The Wave) on board to direct, will tell the story of a young and untested Croft fighting to survive her first adventure.

MGM and Warner Bros. are co-producing the film, with MGM overseeing production. They acquired the rights from GK Films, who had previously purchased the film rights in 2011 from Square Enix Ltd. Graham King is serving as producer.

Angelina Jolie famously starred in the two previous Tomb Raider movies, 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, which established her as a bankable, franchise-carrying international star.
