Kline may be headed ‘West’

Two days after George Clooney high-tailed it out of Warner Bros.’ “Wild Wild West,” sources confirmed Tuesday that Kevin Kline has been offered the role of wise-cracking master of disguise Artemus Gordon.

If a deal materializes, Kline — whose comedic turn in “A Fish Called Wanda” garnered him an Oscar nom — would team with Will Smith, who is attached to star as James T. West for director Barry Sonnenfeld.

Pic is slated to go before the cameras April 1.
