Bow Wow and Ice Cube are teaming up to get “lucky”. The pair is set to star in a new comedy from Alcon Entertainment called, Lottery Ticket. In the film, Bow will play a boy in the projects trying to fend off greedy neighbors that try to steal his winning lottery ticket worth $350 million. Ice Cube will play a former boxer that lives in the neighborhood. The movie will be directed by video produce Erik White, the mastermind for videos like Chris Brown’s “With You”, T.I.’s “Big Things Poppin” and Fabolous’ “Breathe.” Production for the movie begins in Atlanta this October.
This is not the first time the pair has starred in a movie together. Bow Wow was featured in Ice Cube’s 2002 hit All About The Benjamins alongside Mike Epps, playing the part of Kelly, a disgruntled child in Epps’ neighborhood. Later on that year he sparked his acting career, playing the role of an orphan given powers to play basketball like Michael Jordan in 2002’s “Like Mike.” Most recently he’s been noted for his recurring role on the HBO Drama, “Entourage”.
