Building his screenwriting resume after being assigned to pen for "Welfare Queen", Abdul Williams is onboard to carry out writing duties in "Lottery Ticket" for Rogue Pictures which has successfully picked it up based on his treatment.
Presenting a premise of a teenage boy who must keep his winning lottery ticket a secret over a three day weekend, the urban comedy has already had music video director Erik White at helm with Evolution's Oren Koules and Mark Berg both serving as producers. Names to star have not yet been known and neither has the production date.
White, who hashed out the flick's idea with Williams, admitted that lottery tickets were a topic of endless discussion in his neighborhood.
"We were always wondering why some old guy in Utah who already had two houses was winning," he remarked. "This is all about the anticipation."
