Cult movie legend Christopher Walken is set to star in indie drama AROUND THE BEND - but only after he finishes shooting a remake The Stepford Wives.

THE DEERHUNTER star Christopher will play a grandfather in the new movie, about three generations of men who go on the road to seek out a family secret.

The busy 60-year-old actor - who was OSCAR nominated this year (03) for his supporting performance in CATCH ME IF YOU CAN - has three films set for release shortly: Gigli, Envy and WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE.
