Drew Barrymore’s poker film, Lucky You, set for May 4 release
Lucky You, the Drew Barrymore (pictured left) movie that was supposed to be released a year ago — I still have some souvenir chips advertising the Barrymore film that were distributed as the 2006 WSOP — looks like it will finally make it to theaters this spring. The official release date is now set for May 4, 2007. But be forewarned, this is the tenth or eleventh release date for the film so far.

The movie is directed by Curtis Hanson, who directed LA Confidential and Eight Mile, and was penned by Oscar-winning screenwriter Eric Roth, who wrote Forrest Gump. Lucky You features cameos by Jack Binion, Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan, Hoyt Corkins, Eli Elezra, Antonio Esfandiari, Sam Farha, Chris Ferguson, Ted Forrest, Phil Hellmuth, Chau Giang, Barry Greenstein, Jennifer Harman, Dan Harrington, John Juanda, Jason Lester, Erick Lindgren, Minh Ly, Mike Matusow, Daniel Negreanu, Erik Seidel, Huck Seed, Mimi Tran, Cyndy Violette Robert Williamson III.
