Shirley MacLaine is now set to join Jessica Lange, Demi Moore, Judd Hirsch and Billy Connolly in Wild Oats, the Andy Tennant-directed comedy that just got underway in Spain. Blythe Frank is producing and Michael Mailer and Re’Shaun Frear are executive producer.
Written by Claudia Myers and Gary Knew, with revisions by Kenneth Lonergan, the film is about a widow (MacLaine) who receives an unexpected windfall check because of a computer glitch and goes on the run from the law, in a cross between The Bucket List and Thelma And Louise. The Weinstein Company is distributing domestically and Sony overseas. MacLaine was most recently seen in The Secret life Of Walter Mitty, Glee and Downton Abbey. She’s repped by ICM Partners.
