The movie also stars, Elliot Knight, Jason O’Mara, Sterling Beaumon, Mousa Hussien Kraish, and Spencer Garrett. Speaking of the feature Brown explains the theme in a statement, “We’ve been sold a myth that hard work alone will get you there.” Adding, “As the gap between the top and bottom widens, and we see the injustice of families unable to pay their medical bills while billionaires literally plot to live forever, our collective belief in this false dream is pitiable.”
Angus Cloud Was “Pitch Perfect”
For Brown, the goal was to “make a thrilling, fun, and entertaining movie” that could also take a look at deeper themes. As for working with Cloud, the writer-director feels “blessed’ to have had a brief time with him. He shared, “For our conversations about the script, his stories about the time he rode rails down the coast, those pitch-perfect improvisations he’d add to simple moments, his sense of humor. After the shoot, Angus told me something I had always hoped to say back to him, “congratulations bro you did it.””
Your Lucky Day will hit theaters across the country on November 10 and arrive on digital on the 14th. Watch a sneak peek of the film below:
