According to The Hollywood Reporter, Drew Barrymore is getting lucky. The actress has signed on to star opposite Eric Bana in Lucky You, which Curtis Hanson is directing for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Set in the world of high-stakes professional poker, the dramedy-love story is based on an original screenplay by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump), with additional writing by Hanson, who also will produce with Carol Fenelon and Denise Di Novi.

Barrymore will play a struggling singer who meets a professional poker player (Bana) as he deals with his estranged father.

Barrymore most recently appeared in last year's hit 50 First Dates and stars in the Farrelly brothers' romantic baseball comedy Fever Pitch, due this year.
