Wow, somebody needs to check Olivia Wilde‘s birth certificate cause I’m bettin’ her middle name is “sexy”. Ok, all cheesiness aside, I think even Olivia herself knows that she can’t get any more beautiful than she already is. According to Deadline, hot star of the upcoming anticipated sequel, TRON LEGACY, Wilde has signed on to co-star with Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman for Universal Pictures comedy, THE CHANGE-UP..
When this project was previously announced this past Spring, all we knew was that the story was written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the guys we should thank for scripting The Hangover. It’s described as a male centric take on the body switching genre.. where a responsible family man (Bateman) switches bodies with his best friend, a lazy man-child (Reynolds). Still no further details than that but Wilde is set to play the married guy’s law firm co-worker, “who’s an impetus for the body switch”.
David Dobkin (Shanghai Knights, Wedding Crashers) will direct and production starts this fall.
