The Oscar-nominated Winter's Bone actress is expected to play O, a wild child involved in a love triangle between two best friend pot-growers Ben and Chon, in Oliver's big-screen adaptation of Don Winslow's novel.

According to Deadline, actors in the running to portray brainy botanist Ben and ex-Navy SEAL Chon include Leonardo DiCaprio, Aaron Johnson, Tom Hardy, James Franco and Tron Legacy's Garrett Hedlund.

Benicio Del Toro is apparently being courted for the role of a Mexican drug cartel enforcer sent to muscle the duo out of business. Their resistance leads to O's kidnapping and they have to hatch a plan to get her back and disappear.

Shooting on the thriller is scheduled to begin in June.
