Thesps enter Alcon’s ‘Lottery’

Duo cast in Ice Cube, Bow Wow comedy

Brandon T. Jackson (“Tropic Thunder”) and Naturi Naughton (“Fame”) have been cast alongside Bow Wow and Ice Cube in Alcon Entertainment’s “Lottery Ticket.”

Alcon’s financing and producing the urban comedy with musicvid helmer Erik White will make his feature directorial debut on the project, set to begin lensing in Atlanta in October. Film will be released next August via Alcon’s output deal with Warner Bros.

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

Jackson and Naughton will star as friends of Bow Wow’s character who help him get through a weekend in the projects battling opportunistic neighbors while holding a winning lottery ticket.

Jackson was named one of Variety‘s “10 Comics to Watch” last year, starred with Bow Wow in “Roll Bounce” and will be seen next in “Percy Jackson” and “Tooth Fairy.”

Naughton appeared in “Notorious.”
