LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Christian Slater, Gary Oldman and Dane Cook are starring in a stylized crime thriller gearing up for a July 6 start.

“Guns, Girls & Gambling” throws Elvis impersonators, Indians, modern cowboys, a 6-foot-tall blond assassin, a frat boy, a corrupt sheriff and a prostitute into a chase for a priceless American Indian artifact stolen during a poker game at an Indian casino.

Slater plays a normal guy who in a drunken stupor joins an Elvis impersonation contest. Oldman is the contest’s mega-contender, and Cook will play the sheriff.

The indie picture comes from writer/director Michael Winnick (“Shadow Puppets”).

Slater recently starred in ABC’s short-lived “The Forgotten.” Oldman is coming off a bad-guy turn in “The Book of Eli.” The picture marks a rare foray into drama for Cook, who last starred in 2008’s “My Best Friend’s Girl.”
