Rapper turned actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges (2 Fast 2 Furious) and stuntwoman turned cult icon Zoe Bell (Death Proof) will be signing on to the production Lionsgate’s relatively untitled sci-fi action thriller from Crank writer/directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

The flick, originally titled Game will star Gerard Butler as a highly ranked warrior in a near-futuristic world where mind-control technology has taken society by storm. In this outlandish vision of the future, humans can remote-control other humans in the ultimate massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Think “World of Warcraft”, but with real people.

Ludacris will play a part of a group called HUMANZ, alongside Alison Lohman (Beowulf), who are protesting the way that prisoners are being used as part of the video games. See, even in a dystopian futuristic world where everything is an online video game, there are still tree-hugging liberals to kill the buzz.

Details around Zoe Bell’s character are yet to be released, but we can only hope that it involves her strapped to the hood of a futuristic car that is going 800 mph, only to eventually kick the shit out of some has-been actor (I vote David Caruso).

The film is currently shooting for Lionsgate and Lakeshore Entertainment in New Mexico. It will also star John Leguizamo, Amber Valletta, Kyra Sedgewick and Terry Crews.
