Olivia Wilde - Olivia Wilde To Star In Burt Wonderstone?

Olivia Wilde is joining the cast of 'Burt Wonderstone'.

The 'In Time' actress and Steve Buscemi are in talks to appear in the comedy, which has already cast Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey.

The film sees Carrell play a Las Vegas musician whose career flounders thanks to a new, hip illusionist who is not afraid of danger (Carrey) and the additional disaster of his partner quitting.

Buscemi is being lined up to play the departed partner, while Olivia will play an assistant-turned-girlfriend who ditches the act to work with the illusionist instead.

James Galdofini will also appear in the movie, playing a casino owner.

Filming is scheduled to begin in January.

'Burt Wonderstone' is not the first time Carrell and Carrey have worked together, with the former playing Evan Baxter in 2003's 'Bruce Almighty', which saw the 'Dumb and Dumber' actor in the titular role.

'Burt Wonderstone' is set to be directed by Don Scardino, with Tyler Mitchell in line to write the story and John Francis Daley set to pen the screenplay for the film.
