Guns, Girls and Gambling assembles most random cast ever with Slater, Oldman and Cook

06.17.2010

I've heard some WTF casts assemble in my time, but I don’t think anything recently can beat Christian Slater, Gary Oldman and Dane Cook all slapped together in one movie called GUNS, GIRLS and GAMBLING.

What the hell is it about? Well according to Heat Vision, it’s got an equally random plot synopsis.

“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.”

Sounds like a more comedic version of SNATCH or LOCK STOCK to me, with a far more random collection of characters. Slater will play the straight man who enters an Elvis impersonation contest. Oldman is the contest’s “mega-contender” whatever that means, and Cook is playing the sheriff. Really, not the frat boy?

The film is being directed by Michael Winnick, and will hopefully be the good kind of crazy (not the bad), when it’s eventually released.

Extra Tidbit: Oldman, why?

this sounds cool to me! It seems like 3000 miles to graceland, cause of the guns, elvis impersinator, and the casino. I've always like slater, and I hope this brings him back onto the scene again.

With that insane, and awesome cast (Cook is pretty ok when not trying to be funny), and that premise, I can't wait to see this.

First of all

Okay....Slater & Oldman were in True Romance together, both doing outstanding parts for their characters. Elvis impersonator? True Romance again (played very well by Val Kilmer). Dane Cook is a good addition because he gets it. Finally, labeling something as a comedic version of 'Snatch' or 'Lock Stock', is like saying those movies weren't funny. Both of those movies were fucking hilarious, and they rate within my top 10 of all time (Lock Stock is an easy top 5).

This is probably gonna

This is probably gonna be really, really good! (btw - I wonder if Tarantino had anything to do with it...True Romance again...)

Ok, maybe Snatch isn't top 10, but Lock Stock is still definately top 5!

Love the premise, really love the cast. This movie just shot up my most anticipated list. Slater is the man, Oldman is the classic actor, and Dane Cook is awesome.

When reading the title, I knew who Slater and Oldman were, but I was hoping Cook meant Rachel Leigh Cook. No dice. Too bad, with her in this movie instead of Dane Cook, I'd be much more likely to watch this.

Slater and Oldman were both great in True Romance together. Hopefully this will be a good thing for Slater. He used to be great back in the day.

Sounds awesome

I think this sounds like alot of fun... you have Oldman who is a great character actor and as long as Dane Cook stays in the background, he might actually be funny... at least its somewhat original

WTF?!

Gary...what are you thinking? A raise of an eyebrow from you would put those two fuckers through a brick wall. Don't do it!
