If you've ever thought to yourself, "You know, I love that Gary Oldman, but what I'd really like to see is him in a film that requires him to engage in dueling Elvis impersonations with Christian Slater while Dane Cook watches while dressed in full sheriff regalia", today's your lucky day: Guns, Girls, and Gambling has been given a greenlight and will soon find its way to theaters. Here's what Heat Vision has to say about the flick:
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.Writer/director Michael Winnick's behind the film, and if you're unfamiliar with his work, allow me to point you in the direction of...well, the 2007 film Shadow Puppets pops up when you IMDB him, but that's about it. Heat Vision reports that Freefall Films is financing the project-- which sounds absolutely bizarre-- and plans on getting things going in July of this year. If you can find a more unlikely or inexplicable film in development right now, please drop me a line and let me know: I love being confused and morbidly curious about these sorts of things. The plot on this one reminds me of 3000 Miles to Graceland, if only because of the whole "Elvis impersonators + criminals + crooked cops" angle. In any event, that's not a movie you want people being reminded of when they hear about your new flick.
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.
