Casting: Olivia Wilde Is Back For 'Tron 3,' Rooney Mara Joins 'Lion' & More

Tron 3,” or as it’s possibly named, “Tron: Ascension,” is gearing up, and for those worried that Garrett Hedlund would be the only returning cast member, no need to fear. Olivia Wilde will be back as Quorra in the movie set to be directed by Joseph Kosinski. Of course, plot details are mum at the moment, but production will get underway in the fall. No word yet on a release date. [THR]

Rooney Mara is joining Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel in “Lion.” Currently in production with Garth Davis (“Top of the Lake”) at the helm, the movie is based on a true story about a five year old in Northern India who one day gets lost wandering from home, winds up in Kolkata, lives on the streets, and is eventually adopted by an Australian couple. Years later, armed with nothing more than memories and Google Earth, he searches for the home where he came from. It’s a pretty incredible story, so here’s hoping the movie does it justice.

Anna Kendrick is tagging along with Zac Efron and Adam DeVine in “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.” The story follows “two brothers who place an online ad to find dates for a wedding and the ad goes viral.” Fox is already expecting big things with this one, planting it on July 8, 2016. [Variety]

Lastly, a very heavily made up Kristen Wiig has joined the cast of “Zoolander 2.” [THR]  

Very happy to announce Alexanya Atoz has joined the cast of #Zoolander2
