Wild Oats Adds Christopher Walken
05.17.10 by REELZ
In the forthcoming action-comedy Wild Oats, a widow (Shirley MacLaine) heads to Las Vegas with her granddaughter (Christina Ricci) after a pile of money falls in her lap. Christopher Walken is the latest to join the cast, which also includes Maria Bello, John Corbett, and Bill Pullman.
We're guessing that Walken, best known for his "bad guy" performances, will play the villain who goes after his lost loot. Then again, he's played tons of quirky comedic parts in the past few years, so it's only irresponsible speculation on our part.
Shooting is scheduled to begin in Connecticut and Nevada this August, even though there's no major studio attached to the movie. It's currently being shopped around at Cannes.
