Pullman set to sow his Wild Oats

Wild Oats , a new thriller-comedy to be introduced at Cannes by Peace Arch Entertainment, is close to adding Bill Pullman to its cast ranks.

Shirley MacLaine, Maria Bello and Christina Ricci are already on board to star with Scott Marshall ( Blonde Ambition ) directing.

Wild Oats follows a retired widow who gets an unexpected windfall when a Social Security cheque arrives for her mistakenly made out for $900,000.

Having promptly jetted off to Vegas with her granddaughter (as you do), our heroine then finds herself hounded by the media and "a fugitive from justice", which we suppose is why you shouldn't steal things.

Filming is due to begin across the pond in August.

Counting the days yet?
