Olivia Wilde Roped in for ‘Cowboys and Aliens’

Tuesday, February 2 by

Last we heard about Jon Favreau‘s Cowboys & Aliens was that original star Robert Downey Jr. was bailing in favor of talking like a British queef in the Sherlock Holmes sequel. Since that time, Daniel Craig has agreed to strap on the chaps left empty by Downey Jr.. Today comes news that Olivia Wilde has joined the cast. Probably in a sexily way knowing her.

Wilde will play Ella, a woman who joins Craig’s gunslinger in the uprising against an alien invasion. Shooting is expected to begin this summer. No word yet on when the porn parody Reverse Cowgirls & Aliens will go before cameras. But we’ll keep you posted. (THR)
