Slater, Oldman & Cook Are All About 'Guns, Girls & Gambling'

Christian Slater, Gary Oldman, Dane Cook

In what might be one of the strangest assemblies of talent in recent news, Heat Vision says that Christian Slater, Gary Oldman and someone's fraternity brother Dane Cook will star in the stylized crime thriller Guns, Girls & Gambling from writer/director Michael Winnick. And if you think the casting combination is a bit strange, well the story throws it into overdrive too, as the film is said to involve Elvis impersonators, Indians, modern cowboys, a 6-foot-tall blond assassin, a frat boy (irony!), a corrupt sheriff and a prostitute in a chase for a priceless American Indian artifact stolen during a poker game at an Indian casino. What?!

In this wacky cult classic in the making, 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 (booo!). Well count me intrigued at least, but not being familiar with Winnick's work of writing/directing the indie thriller Shadow Puppets for Starz Media back in '07, I'm not entirely sure what to expect from him as a filmmaker. And when you combine a talented actor who hasn't really had a thriving career lately (Slater), an actor who consistently turns in solid performances even if the movie isn't that great (Oldman), and a guy who doesn't know the meaning of subtlety (Cook), this should be very interesting to say the least. What do you think?
