Drew Barrymore is getting lucky.

The actress has signed on to star opposite Eric Bana ("The Hulk") in "Lucky You," a comedy-drama set in the world of high-stakes professional poker.

She will play a struggling singer who meets a professional poker player (Bana) as he deals with his estranged father. Curtis Hanson ("8 Mile") is directing the Warner Bros. project from an original screenplay by Eric Roth ("Forrest Gump"), with additional writing by Hanson.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in March in Las Vegas.
