Mr. Lucky: According to Variety, Blue Star Pictures and Revolution Studios have signed veteran comedy helmer Brian Levant to direct Cedric the Entertainer starrer Mr. Lucky.
Cedric will play Malcolm Crowley, a former Vegas high roller now broke and living contentedly at a spiritual retreat in the Tibetan Himalayas. He's mistaken for a multimillionaire, whisked away to the brand new Everest Casino in Las Vegas and given a $2 million credit line. Before the hotel realizes its mistake, he's won $15 million.
The film's anticipated start date is spring.
