Hi everyone! Sam Rockwell signed up to replace Jeremy Renner this July. Now, Geoff More and David Posamentier’s directorial debut is set to undergo another major change in casting: Olivia Wilde is now under negotiations that may make her to star in the movie Better Living Through Chemistry to replace Jennifer Garner in lead female role.
Obviously, the project has had a bit of trouble holding on to its stars, but they have found quite suitable replacements.
Furthermore, Michelle Monaghan plays Rockwell’s abandoned wife and Judi Dench is the movie’s narrator. Filming is set to begin this autumn.
The darkly comedic thriller stars Rockwell as a humble, small-town pharmacist stuck in a loveless marriage, who rediscovers himself through an affair with a trophy wife customer (Wilde). Things begin to spin out of control after she introduces him to the wonderful world of prescription drugs; they then begin plotting her husband’s murder.
Cowboys & Aliens and The Change-Up star Olivia Wilde next co-stars with Garner (oops!) in ensemble comedy Butter, headed straight for TIFF next month, and also stars alongside Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried in the upcoming sci-fi/action thriller In Time. In addition, ex-Dr. Remy Hadley aka Thirteen has also completed work on suspense thriller Blackbird with Eric Bana and Charlie Hunnam as well as Welcome to People, co-starring as Chris Pine’s widowed mother.
No doubt, Wilde movie career increasingly demands her full and undivided attention.
Check her out in a comedy in which a married guy switches bodies with his best friend in order to woo his co-worker:
