John Cena, Simu Liu, and Awkwafina will be leading the ensemble cast in a movie where one must kill the winner of the Grand Lottery in order to win the prize.

The story follows Katie (Awkwafina) who’s new to Los Angeles where the lottery takes place. Lucky (or unlucky) for her, she finds herself with the winning ticket.

She teams up with amateur jackpot protector Noel (Cena) to make it to sundown alive, all while dealing with Noel’s rival, Louis (Liu).
