All-star Stepford cast

03.10.2003

John Cusack, Christopher Walken, Glenn Close and country singer Faith Hill are in line to join Nicole Kidman in Paramount's remake of THE STEPFORD WIVES. John Cusack, whose sister Joan also has a role in the film, will star as Kidman's husband while Walken and Close play the leaders of the Town of Stepford and the possible masterminds behind the mind-control plot taking over the town. It is expected Hill, making her feature film debut, will star as one of the "robotized" wives. Frank Oz is expected to begin directing the film this summer and this updated version will take a more comic, albeit darkly comedic, look at the STEPFORD tale.

Kidman meanwhile is expected to drop out of a starring role in Martin Scorsese's THE AVIATOR to concentrate on STEPFORD. AVIATOR, the Howard Hughes biopic starring Leonardo DiCaprio, was moved to a July start date which would conflict with Kidman's STEPFORD schedule. Kidman was to play Ava Gardner in the Hughes film and the search for a suitable replacement has begun.
