Bow Wow and Ice Cube to star in Lottery Ticket
The film will follow a young man, played by Bow Wow, who has to survive a weekend in the projects after his neighbours discover he is in possession of a winning lottery ticket worth $350 million (£200 million), reports Variety.
It will be helmed by music video director Erik White who will make his feature film debut, while the script has been crafted by Abdul Williams.
Ice Cube's production company Cube Vision will also have a hand in producing the film.
Legendary rapper Cube made the switch over to the world of acting in John Singleton's 1991 film Boyz n the Hood.
Since then he has enjoyed a steady stream of acting roles, appearing most recently in The Longshots with Keke Palmer and Matt Craven.
