Is Megan Fox really the next Lara Croft?

I can't find confirmation of the news anywhere but the rumor mill has it that Megan Fox is slated to play Lara Croft in the next Tomb Raider movie. Does anyone know for sure?

Olivia WildeOlivia Wilde of House, M.D.(TV)House MD.

Considering the fact that the third Tomb Raider movie is going to be what they call "an origins reboot," taking place before Lara Croft's races against villains and time in a quest to recover ancient artifacts began in the first two movies, I think some of these popular choices are a little too old for the role. What do you think?
