Christian Slater, Gary Oldman, and Dane Cook have signed on to star in Michael Winnick’s stylized crime thriller, Guns Girls, & Gambling. This news depresses me because I thought we were done with Dane Cook. He tried to start up a movie career, it thankfully didn’t work out, and he went away. I’m not sure if it will be sad or funny when Slater and Oldman act him off the screen.
According to Heat Vision, “The story throws Elvis impersonators, Indians, modern cowboys, a 6-foot-tall blond assassin, a frat boy, a corrupt sheriff and a prostitute into a chase for a priceless American Indian artifact stolen during a poker game at an Indian casino.” You know those frat boys: Always going after priceless American Indian artifacts. HV says “Slater plays a normal guy who in a drunken stupor joins an Elvis impersonation contest. Oldman is the contest’s mega-contender, and Cook will play the sheriff.” This marks yet another non-comedy for Cook following Good Luck Chuck, My Best Friend’s Girl, and Employee of the Month.
