Just a few days ago we got word that Daniel Craig would be taking over the role left vacant by Robert Downey Jr., who dropped out of COWBOYS & ALIENS last month. Now, like in every good Western, the film will be adding a beautiful female actress - Olivia Wilde.

Though she is probably best known as Thirteen, her character in the massively popular TV show "House," I'm thinking that's about to change. In December, you'll be able to see her in TRON LEGACY, which is sure to be a huge hit. Couple that with a lead role opposite Daniel Craig and it's clear that Wilde is on her way to becoming a big film star.

In the movie she'll play a gunslinger named Ella. It is being adapted to the big screen by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the same guys who brought us TRANSFORMERS and STAR TREK. Based on a popular graphic novel, it tells the story of what happens when aliens invade in the mid-1800s. If the fusion of two awesome genres isn't enough to get you excited about this project, it is being directed by Jon Favreau, which is all the information I need to know that this is gonna be good.
