Olivia Wilde Gets a Change-Up


Olivia Wilde (“House,” upcoming TRON: Legacy and Cowboys & Aliens) is joining Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman in Universal’s The Change-Up, to be directed by David Dobkin.

The film centers on a responsible family man (Bateman) who switches bodies with his best friend, a lazy man-child (Reynolds). Wilde will play the married guy’s law firm co-worker, who’s an impetus for the body switch.

The comedy, written by The Hangover screenwriters Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, starts filming this fall for an August 5, 2011 release.
