How do you follow up a sultry role on a hit network medical drama? For Olivia Wilde, it's two words: "sci-fi western".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wilde ('House') is in negotiations to play the female lead in Jon Favreau's follow-up to 'Iron Man 2', a live-action adaptation of the 2006 graphic novel 'Cowboys & Aliens'.

Wilde will play Ella, who teams up with a mysterious gunslinger (Daniel Craig) to save the wild west from a crew of aliens with plans to destroy it and enslave the townsfolk.
