Cedric the Entertainer will team with Brett Ratner on the action-comedy “Traces” at New Line Cinema.
Cedric will produce and likely star in the pic, to be produced by Ratner.
Robert Adetuyi’s script is the story of a software custodian who suffers amnesia after a car accident. He must regain his memory when he finds himself pursued by mysterious people who seem to want him dead.
Cedric will produce with Eric Rhone, his manager and producing partner in A Bird and a Bear Entertainment, and with Ratner and Jay Stern’s Rat Entertainment.
Ratner began production Monday on another New Line feature, “After the Sunset,” starring Pierce Brosnan.
Overseeing “Traces” for Rat are Stern and head of development John Cheng. New Line execs on the project are Mark Kaufman, Matt Moore and Luke Ryan.
