Blake Lively the front runner to get Savage for Oliver Stone

My endless battle with the Variety paywall has uncovered the news that Blake Lively is now the front runner for the lead in Oliver Stone's SAVAGES.

The part was left open when Jennifer Lawrence departed for the more prestigious HUNGER GAMES, and now Stone reportedly wants Lively for the part, and is working on securing her commitment. The role is of a free-spirited girlfriend shared by two drug dealing friends. She's kidnapped by a Mexican cartel, and they must work together to get her back.

Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch are circling the two leads, and Benecio Del Toro, Salma Hayek and Uma Thurman are likely involved as well. Teresa Palmer and Olivia Wilde met with Stone about the role, but Lively is said to be his first pick.

But she might have to choose between this part and playing Glenda the Good Witch in Disney's quasi-OZ remake, as the two shoot at similar times. If you were the hot actress (in both looks and career), what would you choose?

Extra Tidbit: At one point, Lively was in the running for Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises. Can't quite picture that.

I'd chose the non-Oz flick, even if I didn't know what the other choice was.
