Los Angeles  - Demi Moore will replace Sarah Jessica Parker in Wild Oats.

The 51-year-old actress is set to join Jessica Lange, Shirley Maclaine and Alan Arkin in the comedy but it is not yet known why Parker - who was catapulted to the spotlight following her role as Carrie Bradshaw on HBO series Sex and the City - pulled out of the project, reports

Hitch director Andy Tennant will helm the film from a script penned by Claudia Myers and Gary Kanew.

Producers are Blythe Frank of Wild Pictures and Kip Konwiser of the Konwiser Brothers, while the Stealth Media Group is executive producing.

The story follows MacLaine who is widowed and given a life insurance cheque worth $5m instead of the expected $50,000 accidentally and her close pal Lange urges her to cash-in the money and retire to the Canary Islands.

Maclaine - who made her film debut in Alfred Hitchcock's The Trouble with Harry - most recently hit the big screen as Edna Mitty in Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, whilst Lange is currently filming The Gambler which is due for a 2015 release.

And Moore most recently played Kate in drama Very Good Girls. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy. Should you wish to report a comment for editorial review, please do so by clicking the 'Report Comment' button to the right of each comment.
