Blue Star Pictures and Revolution Studios have signed veteran director Brian Levant to helm Cedric the Entertainer vehicle Mr. Lucky.
Cedric is to 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 has pocketed $15 million.
Mr. Lucky was pitched by Herbert Ratner III, with Steve Pink rewriting.
