An offer has been made to Olivia Wilde to star alongside Patrick Dempsey in the romantic comedy WONDERFUL TONIGHT.
The film centers on an affluent bachelor (naturally played by Dempsey) who tries to rekindle a romance with the mother of his child, whom he had a one-night stand with two years earlier. If she takes the role, Wilde would play Claire Frost, Dempsey’s baby momma and an attractive, mid-twenties nurse. Amanda Seyfried was attached to star late last year, but no mention had been made on the exact specifics of her role. However, an offer out to Wilde could very likely mean that Seyfried has dropped out of the role of Claire.
Liz Glotzer, Susan Arnold and Donna Roth are producing. Christine Jeffs is directing from a script by J Mills Goodloe.
Wilde has previously starred in “Butter”, “Drinking Buddies” and “Rush”, as well as in the hit medical series “House” and teen drama “The O.C.” She will next be seen in Spike Jonze’s “Her”, which has been receiving excellent early reviews from critics.
She is repped by WME.
