Shirley MacLaine, Alan Arkin and Jacki Weaver (“Animal Kingdom”) will topline Howard Deutch’s indie comedy “Wild Oats” at Wild Pictures says Variety.
MacLaine plays a woman who accidentally receives a fortune due to a Social Security cheque misprint. She heads to Las Vegas with her best friend (Weaver) to start a new life.
Said new life is short lived as they become overnight media sensations and fugitives who must outwit a trio of conmen along with dodging Social Security agents.
Gary Kanew and Claudia Myers penned the script and shooting will commence mid-January on location in Pittsburgh and Las Vegas.
Alexander Tabrizi, Blythe Frank and Agathe David-Weill will produce.
