'Tron: Legacy' hottie Olivia Wilde is joining the dramatic thriller 'The Words,' starring Bradley Cooper. The two, by the way, just happen to be dating in real life, or so the celeb buzz has it. They won't have any scenes together, however. (Sorry, paparazzi).

The film is about a successful writer who learns he has a high price to pay for stealing another man's work. Wilde will play a character who's "key" to what unfolds next.

Ben Barnes ('The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian'), John Hannah ('The Mummy'), J.K. Simmons ('Juno') and French actress Nora Arnezeder ('Safe House') have also signed onto the cast, which includes Jeremy Irons, Zoe Saldana and Dennis Quaid.

'Tron: Legacy' writers Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal will make their directorial debut with the film. Their script appeared on the Black List of the hottest unproduced screenplays.

Wilde will next be seen in 'Cowboys & Aliens.' She's also got five films in the can: the comedies 'Butter' and 'The Change-Up,' the drama 'Welcome to People' with Chris Pine and the thrillers 'In Time,' (from 'Gattaca' director Andrew Niccol), and 'Blackbird,' which has her on the run with Eric Bana.
