Olivia Wilde Gets a Change-Up
Posted 09.16.10 by Ryan
Olivia Wilde has added another project to her growing resume. The actress is set to appear in two movies this year — the November 11th thriller The Next Three Days and the December 17th sequel Tron: Legacy — before Cowboys and Aliens opens July 29, 2011. Wilde will also appear in the comedy The Change-up, which goes into production this fall.
The Change-Up follows Jason Bateman as a married man who switches bodies with his slacker buddy (Ryan Reynolds). According to Deadline, Wilde will play a work associate of Bateman's and the catalyst for the, well, change-up.
In a refreshing change of pace, the movie will eschew the usual father-and-son body switching (see 17 Again, Like Father, Like Son) and mother-daughter body switching (Freaky Friday). David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) will direct the movie from a script by The Hangover screenwriters Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
