Christopher Walken Joins Gods Behaving Badly

walken210No, it’s not a sequel to the classic Neil Morrissey/Martin Clunes sitcom Men Behaving Badly, it’s the film adaptation of Marie Phillips’s best-selling book which will see a group of Athenian Gods struggling to cope in the real world where they’re not quite as powerful as they once were.

Filming kicks off this month with an exhaustive cast list that includes Alicia Silverstone and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as a young couple who discover the squabbling deities.

The gods themselves include Christopher Walken (Zeus), Edie Falco (Artemis), John Turturro (Hades), Oliver Platt (Apollo), Sharon Stone (Aphrodite), Rosie Perez (Persephone), Gideon Glick (Eros), Henry Zebrowski (Hermes) and Nelsan Ellis (Dionysus).

The man responsible for calling the shots will be director and producer John Turteltaub (National Treasure, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice)

Shooting begins in few weeks in New York.
