Lange and SJP sow some Wild Oats

Jessica Lange and Sarah Jessica Parker have joined the cast of Wild Oats.

The road-trip comedy will star Shirley MacLaine and Alan Arkin and tells the story of a widow and retired teacher (Shirley) who is able to live the high life when she receives a life insurance cheque accidentally made out for five million dollars instead of the expected 50,000.

American Horror Story star Jessica will play her best friend, who urges her to cash the cheque and escape their small town life to the Canary Islands.

The movie is written by Claudia Myers and Gary Kanew and will be directed by Andy Tennant, whose credits include rom coms Hitch and Sweet Home Alabama.

The project has been in development for several years with The Weinstein Company and has undergone several plot revamps and cast changes.
