According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wesley Snipes and Mario Van Peebles, who teamed memorably for 1991's New Jack City, are reuniting for Hard Luck. Cybill Shepherd is joining Snipes, who is in final negotiations to topline the pulpy thriller, which Van Peebles is directing.

Brad Wyman (Monster) is producing along with Van Peebles. Hard Luck is described as a quirky thriller following three converging story lines involving bootleggers, a serial killer and drug dealers. Snipes will play a former drug dealer who is trying to go straight but comes across a stash of stolen drugs. Shepherd will play Cass, a middle-aged suburban housewife who hides a sadistic and vicious streak.
