Chris “Ludacris” Bridges (Fred Claus, Crash, 2 Fast 2 Furious) has joined the cast of Lionsgate/Lakeshore’s upcoming Gerard Butler sci-fi action thriller which is currently being filmed under the title of Game.

The film, written and directed by Crank helmers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, takes place in the near future where nano technology has been developed to allow for mind control. In this dystopian world, death row inmates are unknowingly being controlled in an ultimate online multi massive player game, where the winner of 30 games is set free (ala Running Man). Butler plays Kable, who is the most successful player in “Slayer” history, with only three games left to survive. Ludacris is part of a vigilante renegade underground group called H.U.M.A.N.Z., which also includes Alison Lohman. Lohman told me a little more about her role in the film at the Beowulf Junket last week.
