Back during my college days at UCSB, one of my engineering TA's always told me about a group of his friends from MIT that had figured out a way to accurately count cars and make a killing while betting on blackjack. In 2002 this story was confirmed with Ben Mezrich's nonfiction tome Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six MIT Students Who Took Vegas for Millions.

Trigger Street was immediately captivated by the idea and acquired the book as soon as it was published. Now all they needed was a cast. Well, that and about ten good straight wins on the tables.

Kevin Spacey for 21

The upcoming production, 21, has recently been dealt its first two cards. Kevin Spacey and Jim Sturgess will co-star in the film based off Bringing Down the House. With talent such as this one can only doubledown.

Sturgess will play one of the MIT students while Spacey may play his mentor -- it would have been too big of a gamble to say will.

Robert Luketic will direct.

Scribes Peter Steinfeld and Allan Loeb have adapted the novel into a screenplay.

Though Jim Sturgess has only had one film appearance to date, the actor is working hard to correct that. Besides 21, Sturgess will also appear in Across the Universe, with Evan Rachel Wood and The Other Boleyn Girl, with Eric Bana and Natalie Portman. Both films are being produced under Sony.

Kevin Spacey can now be seen on DVD in Superman Returns.

Filming on 21 is expected to begin this February.

Stay tuned for updates.
