Among the new cast members are Dolly De Leon (Triangle of Sadness), Ayden Mayeri (Somebody I Used to Know), Seann William Scott (Welcome to Flatch), and Donald Elise Watkins (Project Artemis).

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).

Currently in production, the film will be available to stream on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.

De Leon has just come off awards season with BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actress. She also won Best Actress in Supporting Role at Sweden’s Guldbagge Awards.

Triangle of Sadness, the film she was recognized for, also received three Academy Award nominations including Best Picture.
