[New Orleans>Casting Directors are still casting supporting roles for the upcoming film Wild Oats
Dimension films recently bought the rights to the road-trip comedy Wild Oats featuring Academy Award winner Shirley MacLaine, Academy Award nominee Jacki Weaver, Academy Award winner Alan Arkin, and the very entertaining Jack Black.
Wild Oats is directed by Howard Deutch who directed such products as Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful, and recently starting working with HBO directing such shows as Big Love and Hung. Claudia Meyers and Gary Kanew penned the script which is described a cute comedy that is a mix between sideways and Thelma and Louise.
Wild Oats tells the story of a retired widow who hits the jackpot when she recieves a Social Security check and mistakenly made out for $900,000 instead of $900. She and her best friend then travel to Las Vegas, to become fugitives from justice.
Howard Deutch has directed some great classics and the cast is extraordinary, said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company. This is a clever and offbeat comedy that is sure to entertain.
I consider it a great opportunity and honor to work with this amazing cast, which has created some of the greatest work in recent memory, said Deutch
Wild Oats is produced by Blythe Frank, Agathe David Weill and Alexander Tabrizi, with Michael Mailer and Mike Dolan as executive producers. The deal was negotiated for Dimension Films by Andrew Kramer, President, Business and Legal Affairs; and by Jack Gilardi of ICM. Gilardi repped the producers as well as Jackie Eckhouse and Bethany Haynes of Sloss Law. Shirley MacLaine, Jacki Weaver, Alan Arkin, and Howie Deutch are all represented by ICM.
