Levant’s getting ‘Lucky’

Cedric the Entertainer starrer to start in spring

Blue Star Pictures and Revolution Studios have signed veteran comedy helmer Brian Levant to direct Cedric the Entertainer starrer “Mr. Lucky.”

Levant (“Beethoven,” “The Flintstones”) recently wrapped shooting on Revolution’s Ice Cube comedy “Are We There Yet?,” which is skedded for a January release.

Jason Shuman and William Sherak of Blue Star will produce “Mr. Lucky” with Eric Rhone, Cedric the Entertainer’s producing partner. Revolution partners Todd Garner and Derek Dauchy will oversee for the studio.

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.

“Mr. Lucky” was written by Herbert Ratner III from his own pitch and rewritten by Steve Pink.

Pic’s anticipated start date is spring.
