Olivia Wilde in Third Person?

April 5th, 2012

Olivia Wilde will play Liam Neeson's girlfriend in 'Third Person'.

The 28-year-old actress will team up with the 'Schindler's List' star in Paul Haggis' latest movie, which he has been writing for some time.

Paul told the Vulture blog: ''It's about three story lines, three love stories, three relationships in three different cities that combine in a very odd way: New York, Paris, Rome. And so I wanted one of them to have a job in New York. So after writing the script, I thought, 'Oh, party reporting, that would be great.' But literally, it's just that. The character is not based on anyone, or anything like that.''

Liam is taking on a leading role while Olivia is set to play the ''party reporter'' role.

The project is set to shoot in August if negotiations are completed.

It will be the second time Olivia has worked with Paul after she appeared in his short-lived US television drama 'The Black Donnellys'.
