House co-stars Robert Sean Leonard and Omar Epps have closed deals to return for the series’ upcoming eighth (and likely final) season, which is thisclose to being a reality as a renewal agreement between Fox and House producer Universal Media Studios is being finalized tonight.

Leonard (who recently told TVLine that he was on the fence about doing another season), Epps and Lisa Edelstein are the three original cast members whose current deals expire at the end of this season. Edelstein’s deal is still not done, with the process delayed by the fact that she has been overseas. However, she is expected to close. Star Hugh Laurie has one more year on his contract, and newer cast members such as Olivia Wilde also have more time.

Negotiations with the show’s owner, Universal Media Studios, are ongoing, and the two remain in an exclusivity window. Both Fox and UMS are trying to come to an agreement on who will pay what percentage of the pricetag for season eight.

Fox is looking for a signficiant reduction in license fees — some sources say up to 20% — despite the show’s ever-growing costs. Another sticking point is that Fox would like a one-year deal for the show while UMS would prefer a two-year pact.

To complicate matters, “House” cast members Robert Sean Leonard, Omar Epps and Lisa Edelstein are not under contract for an eighth season. UMS will exercise options for star Hugh Laurie and Olivia Wilde if the show goes forward.

Both sides refuse to comment on the negotiations but are optimistic a deal can get done by Monday, when Fox will announce its fall lineup to advertisers. If talks fall apart, UMS will be able to shop the drama to other networks.

Meanwhile, “House” creator-exec producer David Shore is expected to begin fielding offers soon on a new studio deal. His most recent pact with UMS, where he has been for the past eight years, is about to expire.

Actress Olivia Wilde is planning to turn director after signing on to make a movie about a Haitian children’s baseball team.

The Tron: Legacy star was among the first celebrity aid volunteers to travel to the Caribbean nation in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, which left Haiti devastated, and she admits the journey was an “amazing” experience.

Now, she’s heading back to make a film about a group of young survivors.

She tells America’s Glamour magazine, “I’m going to Haiti to work on a documentary about a Little League team.”

The actress is hoping to turn the trip into an extended vacation, although she’s hesistant to leave so soon after purchasing her first home following her marriage split.

She says, “I’m thinking about travelling, but I should stay in one place. I just bought a house (in Los Angeles).”

Wilde filed for divorce from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli earlier this year (11) after eight years of marriage.

The new “Tomb Raider” movie is moving an inch closer to realization. “Iron Man” writing duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby are hired to write the script of the untitled Tomb Raider reboot project. “Mark and Hawk’s clear sensibilities of action and emotion are perfect for the direction we are taking this franchise,” producer Graham King announced.

GK Films, which is owned by King, acquired the rights to the video game adaptation for a new franchise. “We aim to write an origin story for Lara Croft that solidifies her place alongside Ellen Ripley and Sarah Connor in the pantheon of great female action heroes,” Fergus and Ostby stated.

King and his producing partner Tim Headington are aiming for 2013 release for the first film.

Angelina Jolie famously played the character in the 2001 and 2003 movies, and there was a rumor that Olivia Wilde would take over. However, in a recent interview with MTV, Wilde said, “As far as I know right now, I’m not playing Lara Croft. No,” and added later, “That’s really cool that people think I should play her. That’s nice of them.”

Wilde stars in Fergus and Ostby’s latest film “Cowboys and Aliens” which opens in U.S. theaters July 29.

Oliva Wilde isn’t exactly mourning the end of her marriage to Italian prince Tao Ruspoli.

In the June issue of Glamour, the 27-year-old Cowboys & Aliens star says that although their eight-year union is over, she has nothing but fond memories of their time together.

“The mark of a good marriage is partnership and continuing to feel inspired by your spouse. I had that with Tao,” Wilde explains. “But the end is not necessarily the tragedy. Staying in a relationship that is no longer working is the tragedy. Living unhappily — that’s the tragedy.”

The actress — who’s been spotted out with Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake in recent months — admits she’s ready to give love another chance.

“I’m opening up my heart to the idea of dating. It’s funny — my friends would always come to me for romantic advice, but I know nothing, and things have changed since I was dating in high school,” she laughs. “I’m really trying hard to spend this time working on myself.”

OLIVIA Wilde isn’t dating Justin Timberlake!

The sexy actress sparked talk of romance between her and pop star Justin when they were spotted at an L.A nightclub together earlier this month — but Wilde insists the pair aren’t Hollywood’s hottest new couple.

“I’ve always loved Justin and we’ve been friends and nothing more than that for years,” says Olivia.

“I know how these rumors happen. It comes with the territory. People are curious by nature. I’m just glad I don’t let all these rumors get to me otherwise I think I would go insane.”

Timberlake split from girlfriend Jessica Biel in March after over four years together, while Wilde filed for divorce from hubby Tao Ruspoli after eight years of marriage March 11.

Wilde recently revealed how she balances life with maintaining her figure.

”Striving for physical perfection takes a lot of energy,” she said.

“For me it’s important to come home from work, cook a meal, and spend the afternoon reading a book, instead of always running around.”
