Joe Carnahan confirms that Universal Pictures have given thumbs up to a prequel project for his 2007's action comedy starring among others Ben Affleck and Andy Garcia, 'Smokin' Aces'.

"Smokin' Aces Prequel", a prequel movie of 2007 "Smokin' Aces", is on its way to the big screen. On Thursday, October 30, the action comedy's director/producer/writer, Joe Carnahan, announced that the new project is moving forward. "Finally, some actual 'Smokin Aces' news. Universal has officially greenlit the prequel and we are underway," he wrote on his official blog.

Sharing more on the project, the co-writer of "Pride and Glory" also revealed that there will be plenty of cameo appearances. On the same message, he noted simply, "Cameos will abound. Trust me."
