#Lucky Number official VOD release announced

Vision Films is proud to release the outrageous comedy #Lucky Number across all VOD platforms in the USA on September 1st 2015, and DVD on October 6th 2015.

The film is inspired by an incredibly bizarre true story, when a friend of the film’s writer/producer Michael Cuccolo received the old cell number of Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez, superstar third baseman of the New York Yankees.

#Lucky Number stars Wu-Tang Clan legend, Cliff ‘Method Man’ Smith (How High), and poses the question: What would you do with a superstar’s old phone number?

Bret, an aspiring sportscaster, serendipitously finds his phone contains the old cell number of his idol, basketball superstar Tyson ‘The Saint’ St. James. Bret uses his newfound access to gain entrance for him and his buddies into exclusive VIP events and clubs, all while trying to impress the girl of his dreams. His lucky streak comes to a halt when ‘The Saint’ gets wind of what he’s up to. Will the #Lucky Number become Bret’s shortcut to success or his path to destruction?

“This film appeals to the fantasy in all of us,” says Lise Romanoff, Managing Director / CEO of Vision Films, Inc. “Girls will love its fairytale romance, and guys will certainly enjoy the rowdiness, abundant sports, awesome music, and all the shenanigans the protagonists get into. Everyone dreams of living the ‘A-list’ lifestyle.”

In addition to Method Man, #Lucky Number features a young cast of up-and-comers: Tom Pelphrey (‘Homefront’, ‘Banshee’), Natalie Hall (‘Pretty Little Liars’, ‘All my Children’), Malcolm Goodwin (‘iZombie’, ‘Breakout Kings’) and Milena Govich (‘Finding Carter’, ‘Rescue Me’).
