Chris “Ludacris” Bridges (Fred Claus, Crash, 2 Fast 2 Furious) and stuntwoman Zoe Bell (Death Proof) have joined the cast of Lionsgate’s upcoming untitled sci-fi action-thriller from Crank writers/directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.
Previously titled Game, the film takes place in the near future, when mind-control technology has taken society by storm. In this dystopian world, the ultimate online simulation environment is humans remote-controlling other humans in mass-scale, multiplayer online gaming.
Gerard Butler plays Kable, the No. 1-ranked warrior in the highest-rated game, called “Slayers.” With his every move tracked by millions, Kable’s ultimate challenge is to regain his identity and bring down the system that has imprisoned him.
In the film, Ludacris is a part of Alison Lohman’s resistance group called HUMANZ that is protesting the way that the prisoners are being used as part of these video games. We have no further info on the character played by Bell, although one would expect her to be heavily involved in the battle sequences.
