Reporting out of Toronto, Variety says that Olivia Wilde has been cast as the female lead in The Longest Week.
We have seen her a lot this year; we saw her starring in both Cowboys & Aliens and The Change Up this past summer, as well as appearing in the political satire Butter and playing Justin Timberlake’s mom in Andrew Niccol’s In Time. Now The Longest Week.
Based on a script by Peter Glanz, who will also be making his directorial debut with the project, the story is about a man named Conrad Valmont who has spent his entire life mooching off of his parents; using all of their resources and living in their hotel. But Valmont’s life falls apart completely when he meets a a girl named Sabine who manages to will turn the lead character’s life around.
The article doesn’t mention who may end up playing the lead role but I think it’s pretty safe to say that Wilde will be playing Sabine.
