Wilde Wilde West

From ComingSoon.net:

"Olivia Wilde (upcoming Tron Legacy) is in negotiations to star opposite Daniel Craig in the graphic novel adaptation Cowboys & Aliens, to be directed by Jon Favreau for DreamWorks.

Based on the Platinum Studios title written by Fred Van Lente and Andrew Foley, the sci-fi Western explores what would happen if the traditional Old West enemies -- cowboys and Native Americans -- found the prairie attacked by aliens in mid-1800s Arizona.

Wilde will play a character named Ella who joins up with the mysterious slinger [Zeke Jackson] (Craig).

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing and wrote the script with 'Lost' co-creator Damon Lindelof. Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are also producing along with Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. Favreau and Denis Stewart are serving as executive producers."

Seriously, am I the only who came up with the bad (but funny) pun, "Wilde Wilde West"? (Her name is pronounced "Wild" but spelled "Wilde" like Oscar Wilde).
