Musicvid helmer Erik White will make his feature directorial debut on the project, set to begin lensing in Atlanta in October.

Alcon toppers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove will produce along with Evolution partners Mark Burg and Oren Koules. Matt Alvarez of Ice Cube’s production company, Cube Vision, will also produce.

Evolution’s Brad Kaplan and Andrew Wilson will co-produce “Lottery Ticket,” to be released through Alcon’s output deal with Warner Bros.

Bow Wow is repped by UTA and Ice Cube by WME. UTA reps Williams while WME reps White; both are managed by Evolution.
