According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wilde is up for the role of Ella, a young woman who teams up with Craig's "mysterious gunslinger" against the alien invasion. Wilde's previous movie experience includes "Alpha Dog," "Turistas," "Year One" and the highly anticipated "Tron Legacy" which is set to be released in December.
Back in October, Wilde told MTV News about her desire to portray Wonder Woman when she was a young girl. If Wilde signs on to "Cowboys & Aliens", it will be her first comic book movie.
"Cowboys & Aliens" is based upon the 2007 graphic novel of the same name by writers Fred Van Lente & Andrew Foley and artists Dennis Calero & Luciano Lima. The concept was created by Platinum Studios' Scott Mitchell Rosenberg and is being adapted by "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof and "Star Trek" screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
Last month it was revealed that "Iron Man 2" star Robert Downey Jr. had dropped out of "Cowboys & Aliens", leaving the door open for Daniel Craig to step into the leading role.
"Cowboys & Aliens" is expected to begin shooting in July and may be shot in 3D to capitalize on the phenomenal success of "Avatar."
