To everyone surprise, the "Hard Luck" reunited fellow actors Wesley Snipes and Mario Van Peebles, who teamed up for 1991's "New Jack City." Joining the twosome is Cybill Shepherd who is still in final talks to topline the Van Peebles direction.
As for this drama thriller action, Van Peebles also is producing alongside Brad Wyman. Looking at the story, "Hard Luck" follows three converging story lines involving bootleggers, a serial killer and drug dealers.
Snipes is set to play a former drug dealer who is trying to go straight but comes across a stash of stolen drugs. Shepherd, on the other hand, will play Cass, a middle-aged suburban housewife who hides a sadistic and vicious streak.
