Olivia Wilde is Helping Reynolds and Bateman 'Change Up' a Bit

Back in March we found out one of the many forthcoming projects for Ryan Reynolds would see him opposite Jason Bateman in Change Up, a classic body switch story where a responsible family man (Bateman) trades bodies with his lazy, man-child of a best friend (Reynolds). David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) is directing the comedy that will hopefully make a tired recycled concept seem fresh. Also making the film a little easier to look at will be the stunning Olivia Wilde ("House M.D.") who has a promising future in film with roles in highly anticipated projects like Tron Legacy later this year and Cowboys & Aliens next summer.

The news from Deadline says Wilde will play Bateman's wife who is somehow the driving force behind the body trade. In addition to Wilde's casting alongside the comedic talents of both Bateman and Reynolds, it helps that the script for the Universal Pictures comedy comes from Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the duo behind last summer's breakout hit The Hangover. With the body switch comedy, it's hard to get excited about the concept, but with any generic comedy, it's the talent in front of and behind the camera that can make it feel brand new. For now, I'm cautiously optimistic about the film which will either shoot later this year or early next year. Interested?

    she's beautiful..........but i've NEVER watched (or liked/disliked) a non-porn movie due to a womans looks . this movie doesn't sound very good to me (even with OW beauty), so i doubt i'll be watching it. she is amazingly beautiful though - let me know when she does an adult film and i'll be there opening night!
