Olivia Wilde and Jonathan Tucker have joined the cast of writer-director Paul Haggis' thriller The Next Three Days.

Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks topline the Lionsgatemovie, which revolves around a woman imprisoned for a murder she claims she didn't commit and her husband, who tries to vindicate her.

Wilde will play a young mother who befriends the husband; Tucker will play a street tough running a meth lab.

Shooting begins this week in Pittsburgh.

Wilde is in the cast of Fox's House, which returned to high ratings last week, and stars opposite Garrett Hedlund in Tron Legacy.

Tucker starred in Haggis' series The Black Donnellys and his feature In the Valley of Elah. He also has appeared in indie dramas including Flying Lessons, Meskada, Veronika Decides to Die and An Englishman in New York.
