Filming on the remake of The Stepford Wives has had to be stopped because director Frank Oz is unwell.

Stars of the movie including Nicole Kidman, Matthew Broderick, BETTE MIDLER, Christopher Walken, Glenn Close and Faith Hill have had to put their feet up until The Score filmmaker recovers.

Unit publicist MARSHA ROBERTSON tells the PAGE SIX website, "The producers announced that director Frank Oz is ill. We're just on hold, going day to day until we hear further."
