Olivia Wilde in talks to land major Marvel movie

Olivia Wilde is close to landing a deal to direct a top-secret new Marvel blockbuster.

After impressing with her critically-acclaimed filmmaking debut Booksmart last year (2019), Wilde has been looking for a big-budget project to sink her teeth into, and it looks like she might have found the perfect job.

According to Deadline sources, she’s the frontrunner to take charge of a female-centered new comic book caper, perhaps based on the Spider-Woman character, written by her Booksmart collaborator Katie Silberman and produced by Hollywood heavyweight Amy Pascal.

Wilde’s next project, thriller Don’t Worry, Darling, is set to start shooting later this year (2020), while the Tron: Legacy star, Silberman, and Pascal are also working on a Christmas movie.
